In case you missed it, small government crusader and Tea Party favorite Sarah Palin’s TLC reality show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” received a $1.2 million subsidy from the state of Alaska. The show spent $3.6 million on production in the state, meaning that Alaskan taxpayers covered a third of the cost of the show.
Sarah Palin may have quit her job, but that doesn’t mean she can’t still force her state to pay her a salary.
More importantly, is immoral Hollywood lamestream teevee funded by socialism what Alaska really needs? It could be using that money to drill endangered species for oil. [Tax Foundation]
