(Newser) – For those who don't want to pay $9.95 per month for Sarah Palin's new online TV channel, Stephen Colbert proposed an alternative on last night's Colbert Report: his $9.94 "Angry Echo Chamber," undercutting the "24/7 Palintainment" package by a penny. He was just joking with that offer, notes the Washington Post, but the real punchline came when he announced that he had bought the URL TheSarahPalinChannel.com. The official URL for Palin's show is SarahPalinChannel.com. Colbert's website description? "The only Sarah Palin Channel on the Internet with a definite article in the address!"
