(Politico)   Sarah Palin, who on her last reality show proved beyond a shadow of a doubt she'd never been hunting before, has a brand new "reality" series on "The Sportsman's Channel", which is, I think, the one that replaced "The Ocho" on your cable   (politico.com) divider line 137

Sportsman Channel president Gavin Harvey said in a statement that the network is "ecstatic and very proud" Palin picked Sportsman Channel to return to unscripted TV.

Uh-oh!  That means no crib notes, Sarah!

This is hilarious. I can just picture her agent or the producer calling smaller and smaller cable channels until they found one that didn't hang up the phone the second they mentioned her name.

I'm sure she has the situation in hand.

Hey, I liked the Ocho!
Unscripted TV show? Maybe Tina Fey has some free time to write the unscript.

AA with Sarah Palin? Sounds about right.

The Sportsman Channel is a smaller version of the Outdoor Channel. As far as "outdoor lifestyle networks" go, it is the lower budgeted, lower rated one.

It is surprising to me that a network that typically shows legitimate outdoorsmen would do a show with such an obvious fraud. Not only did Palin show that she doesn't know the first thing about shooting, she also confused the term "conservationist" with "preservationist" when she complained on her show that conservationists send her "nasty letters." Any true outdoorsman knows there's a big difference between the two words, as hunters like her husband are themselves conservationists (conserving wild game at manageable levels) while preservationists are anti-hunting, anti-logging, etc. in all situations (like PETA).

Within the hunting community, it is a well-known distinction, and it was very telling that she didn't know the difference, as I'm sure her husband and father, who seem to be real outdoorsmen, certainly would know.

So, she managed to convince a channel primarily dedicated to fishing and hunting to give a show to someone who cannot even load their own rifle?

Say what you will, but that's some mighty good grifting.

Only if she gets paid for a full season upfront and quits half-way through.

I come in contact with dozens of hunters every day. MAYBE one out of a hundred could tell you the difference in the words. The concepts they would understand.....but if you said the words to them they'd stare blankly

The Outdoor Channel also has a show starring Ted Nugent so they clearly aren't shy about employing embarrassing crazies.

True, but that's a different network. And Ted, while a nutbag, is at least highly experienced with shooting and hunting.

How can there be so many outdoor life channels? There must be at least six of them airing the exact same crap. Is Some Dudes Fishing on Outdoorsman somehow different from Straight Fishin' on Outside Life?

I watch hunting and fishing shows.  Ted's hunting show (novelty aside) is terrible.  The majority of the content is him blasting around the woods on an ATV or yammering at the camera about "the spirit of the wild of the nature of the predator of the blah blah".  His show is tedious.  That's the best way to describe it.

What industry is that? The hire-clueless-people-to-do-outdoors-shows industry?

She'll just quit halfway through the season.

Oh great. The country bumpkins I work with watch that channel all the time. It's low budget hunting shows that look like they're shot with a Sony handycam

She's talking about the "outdoor lifestyle" industry which is hunting, fishing, camping, etc. However, it is factually untrue that Sportsman is the "leader in their industry" since they're in 20% fewer homes than Outdoor Channel, they have fewer shows, fewer "stars," less revenue, etc.

It'll be all fun and games until she accidentally shoots someone in the production crew..

Ya know its funny, I don't know a single person who watches the outdoors channel. Usually if I want tips on hunting I talk to people who actually know what they are doing, i.e in montana I talk to some of the mountain men who do it daily.

I've been hunting for past 4-5 years, although my gear is all crap - I usually do pretty well. There is no way anyone is going to take "Sarah Palin" seriously, if they do they probably need to get eaten by a bear.

In fairness, neither do a lot of hunters.

I didn't watch any of this woman's last reality show and I won't watch this one, either, but I am mildly curious to know how she "proved" she'd never been hunting. Was this an admission or some sort of on-camera farkup?

Why should we ignore her? I think it's better for the country that we are constantly reminded that nearly half the country wanted this clown to be an old man's heartbeat away from getting the launch codes.

Those who don't learn from history...

I don't understand libs as the only group in the world who act like this. Why just the other day in a Freeper thread regarding Obama's commie, socialist, atheist, muslim, facist takeover of America with jeremiah Wright I pointed out to people how silly libs are for being the only group who does this.

Do they have a budget for her "real nature" segment on the proper way to scout, stalk and bag gift items at Nieman-Marcus?
