Palin Teams Up With Newsmax

Because the free media she gets as a Fox News contributor is not enough, Sarah Palin links up with the remarkably successful Newsmax.com. The announcement, from Newsmax Editor and CEO Christopher Ruddy:

Dear Friend:

I have some exciting news to share with you!

Governor Sarah Palin is coming to Newsmax to join us for a special webcast series we will be airing exclusively online.

On October 12, Newsmax, with Governor Palin, will kick off its special pre-election online webcast series "Make America Great Again."

This series will continue right up until Election Day in November.

As you may recall, "Make America Great" was Ronald Reagan's slogan for his 1980 campaign.

President Reagan's son Michael will be hosting our webcast series, which will include not only Governor Palin but also other opinion leaders such as  Dick Morris.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime program and is not to be missed!

Make sure you RSVP early to be part of Newsmax's "Make America Great Again" program with Governor Palin.

And so continues the great Palin experiment of doling out her time to conservative media and letting it trickle down to the traffic-hungry* "MSM." (Newsmax often conducts friendly-but-tough interviews with Republican figures; this, a user-driven webcast, is set to be a lot softer.)

*Spending around 15 minutes working next to a TV this morning, I saw two, err, "news" stories about Palin's appearance on "Dancing With The Stars."
