Obama's Campaign Books Sharpton For CNN
"Is Senator Obama’s Campaign Booking CNN?" asks Greta Van Susteren on her "On the Record" Web site. Looks like it. According to Greta:
I debated whether to tell you this or not…but I did promise behind the scenes information here on GretaWire….so here it is…yesterday at 9:00am I personally booked Reverend Sharpton to appear ON THE RECORD at 10pm eastern to discuss Don Imus. At 8:12pm, less than 2 hours before we were to begin our 10pm news show, I received a call in my office from Reverend Sharpton…he said that Senator Obama’s campaign had called and asked him to appear on CNN at the same time he was due to appear on ON THE RECORD and thus could not make our show at the top. I told him that our first segment was the one he had been booked for almost 12 hours earlier and which we had discussed …he said Senator Obama’s campaign called and wanted him on CNN and that he was sorry.
So…here is my question: is Senator Obama’s campaign booking CNN now?
What's next? Will the Obama campaign start writing copy for CNN's newsreaders? Perhaps Barry can give an instaff training session on working a teleprompter. He's got that down pat.
And now we should ask: Exactly how close is Obama to Rev. Sharpton? Maybe Al is the candidate's new spiritual advisor. Not that the Chicago messiah needs one.
