Is Obama really buying a half hour of primetime on the networks?
Barack Obama has purchased a half-hour of airtime on CBS, sources confirm.
The Obama campaign will air a half-hour primetime special on Wednesday, Oct. 29, at 8 p.m.
Sources say the Obama camp is also in talks with NBC and Fox. NBC is said to be very near a deal. With Fox, the matter is likely to remain uncertain as the time period could conflict with Game 6 of the World Series.
God, I hope so. This is a great idea.
UPDATE: You know it’s a great idea when conservatives begin attacking it immediately. The second and third comments on that story I linked to are wonderfully wingnut:
I am sure Hitler would also have loved to do this if he had the chance in the 30s. After all, Obama already has his Hilter’s Youth marching in droves online and every media outlet championing him as the black messiah.=
