Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin announced on Monday that her subsciption-based channel would no longer charge for memberships, Wonkette reported.
“I just want to make sure that your voices and mine are heard by the widest possible audience across this great land of ours,” Palin said in a short video. “I really look forward to continuing to hear your ideas and your dreams and your solutions for America.”
The channel launched last July and cost $9.95 per month or $99.95 for a yearly subscription. Palin said at the time that it would “go beyond the soundbites and the media’s politically correct filter to get to the truth.”
The ex-governor of Alaska said that the content at SarahPalinChannel.com would be available for free on her Facebook page and her political action committee’s website beginning on Aug. 1. Annual subscribers, she said, had the option of either getting a refund on their existing balances or applying them to affiliated conservative sites.

Veteran Republican operative shames the GOP — and warns they won’t get rid of Trumpism ‘for at least a generation’
Stuart Stevens is a veteran Republican campaign operative from five presidential races. When he spoke to PBS's Judy Woodruff Wednesday, he lamented the GOP failed the moral test it was presented with Donald Trump.
"Well, I think there's been two strains in the party. Call it an Eisenhower strain going back to the '50s and a McCarthy strain," Stevens said, recalling when the GOP would talk about expanding their party and bringing in more African-American voters. "Now we don't even hear any talk anymore of a big tent. And we seem to have settled into a very comfortable white grievance identity."
Seth Meyers mocks Trump’s Axios interview where he ‘couldn’t even remember his own BS — that’s how fried his brain is’
In his response to President Donald Trump's bizarre interview with Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, "Late Night" comedian Seth Meyers explained the Trump interview in a single photo:

Former Trump ambassador tells Rachel Maddow ‘it’s a big red flag’ that Trump is trying to hide investigation of Turnberry scam
Former acting ambassador to the U.K., Lewis Lukens, told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow that the inspector general raised questions to him and embassy staff in the U.K. about President Donald Trump's demand for the ambassador to lobby for the British Open to be hosted at Trump's golf course in Scotland.
According to Lukens, he told those questioning how to go about getting the British Open at Trump Turnberry, and Lukens said he was clear that it was "unethical" and "possibly illegal." Still, Trump's cronies persisted.
He explained that when the inspector general did the investigation they went back to Washington to write up the report and that it should have been released by now, but it obviously has not. Today, the acting IG, who took over just three months ago, abruptly resigned.
