Meghan McCain has had enough of her father’s former running mate, Sarah Palin.
On Monday, Palin announced the launch of a new web-only news network, the Sarah Palin Channel. Access to Palin’s channel will reportedly cost $9.95 a month, which is more than the current price of a Netflix subscription. McCain, the daughter of Sen. John McCain, discussed Palin’s announcement on her TV show – and she was not impressed.
“I am not going to subscribe to Sarah Palin’s $9.95 a month, I got all my Sarah Palin I need for one lifetime!” McCain said during her Pivot TV show TakePart Live, in comments first flagged by Politico.
“When I looked at her site though, I don’t know how this is different than a blog with video posts. It didn’t look like a video channel … Glenn Beck has The Blaze which is an actual channel you can turn to on television,” McCain said.
“Americans are innately curious about her for a number of reasons. Whether you love her or you hate her, people are curious,” McCain also admitted.
Meghan McCain’s father ran for president with Palin as his running mate in 2008, and she campaigned in support of both candidates. Six years later, it seems McCain has had her fill of Palin.
In her announcement on Monday, Palin promised the channel “more than news,” and instead, would be a “community.” She also criticized the media for being biased, saying: “Are you tired of the media filters? Well, I am. I always have been - so we’re gonna do something about it.”
In addition to her web channel, Palin also currently hosts a reality show on the Sportsman Channel. Previously, she hosted a reality show on TLC in 2010, which lasted only one season.
