ANOTHER PALIN ERA BEGINS
This is the time of “red, wild and blue America” says the Sportsman Channel, which recetnly showcased new host Sarah Palin before the Hollywood press. The former presidential hopeful will host a power breakfast at the 2014 Television Critics Association in Pasadena, Calif., to talk up “Amazing America,” an original lifestyle series which debuts in April. “Grizzlies are unpredictable,” the network advises, “and we’ve go the mother of them all.”
Producers intend to demonstrate “where the American spirit and the great outdoors are celebrated in equal measure,” the channel notes. Others have thoughts about the former Alaska governor.
“I’m not a defender of everything she says. I don’t hear everything she says. But I know she represents a certain group of people who rose up against their own party, which you rarely see. I probably hired her back, if you really want to get to the bottom of it, to give her a chance to say her piece and piss off the people that wanted her dead,” FOX News CEO Roger Ailes told the Hollywood Reporter, regarding Mrs. Palin’s continued presence on his network.
“Hmmm. Funny. I accepted for the same reason,” she countered on her Facebook page in response.
