Obama Controls the World Series

Because the World Series doesn’t start late enough, Barack Obama has asked for, and received approval from MLB and Fox to start any potential game 6 of the World Series fifteen minutes later. That’s because he’s purchased a half hour of airtime from Fox so that he can air a longer commercial for his campaign.

“Fox will accommodate Senator Obama’s desire to communicate with voters in this longform format,” Fox Sports said in a statement. “We are pleased that Major League Baseball has agreed to delay the first pitch of World Series Game 6 for a few minutes in order for Fox to carry his program on Oct. 29. If requested, the network would be willing to make similar time available to Senator McCain’s campaign.”

I for one hope it is like the old Ross Perot ad buys where it is a half hour full of lots of charts and graphs. Now THAT’S exciting television!
