Just when you thought that the TV wasteland couldn't get any grimmer, Low-Info America's favorite grifter, quitter and clown-car passenger announces that she's starting her own digital video channel, called...wait for it...Rogue TV. (winks)

According to capitalnewyork.com:

Fox News contributor and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will be launching her own digital video channel, tentatively called “Rogue TV,” a source familiar with the project told Capital.

The channel will be available through Tapp, the digital video service founded by former CNN chief Jon Klein and former NBC Universal entertainment executive Jeff Gaspin. Subscriptions will cost $10 per month.

Rogue is expected to launch in April or May, and it would be one of the first of the digital channels offered by Tapp.

Palin’s channel will feature video commentaries from the former Republican vice-presidential candidate, discussing current events and political issues.

“Think of it as a video version of her Facebook page,” the source said.

Oooh...goody! A '...video version of her Facebook page...'. So it'll move and stuff and noises will fall out of Snowshoe Barbie's face-hole in no particular order and make us confused and angry and sad. That's got to be worth a sawbuck of anyone's money. You betcha! (winks)

The article continues:

That said, Rogue is also expected to feature footage of Palin and her family in Alaska, much as the 2010 TLC reality series, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” did. (TLC’s parent company, Discovery Communications, is an investor in Tapp.)

It will also have advice and guidance from Palin, such as tips for parents and recipes.

Tips for parents? Oh...I get it; you mean, like teaching your teenage daughter about birth-control? Those kinds of tips? Awesome.

And recipes? Call it male intuition but I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that they're going to be 'mouth-watering' and 'simple-to-prepare'. The recipe for Destroying What Little Credibility John McCain Had Fricassee is, I suspect, especially delicious and requires no preparation at all! (winks)

The piece ends with this chilling news:

What other talent Tapp is lining up has not yet been revealed, but we hear that Tapp has been casting a wide net, seeking out both political personalities like Palin, as well as entertainment and lifestyle personalities.

The company’s website paints a picture of what to expect, with a word-cloud featuring topics like “paranormal,” “faith,” “relationships,” “fantasy sports” and “science.”

Be afraid; be very afraid also, too. (shoots moose; winks)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
