NEW YORK (AP)—Major League Baseball has agreed to push back the start time of a potential World Series Game 6 by eight minutes to allow Democrat Barack Obama to purchase a half-hour of air time on the Fox network.


Baseball spokesman Pat Courtney said Thursday that the game time would now be set for 8:35 p.m.


The Obama presidential campaign said Oct. 9 that it had bought the 8-8:30 p.m slot on CBS and NBC.


“Fox will accommodate Senator Obama’s desire to communicate with voters in this long-form format,” network spokesman Lou D’Ermilio 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.”

The World Series has not gone to a sixth game since 2003

I hate cricket. Always have.

That being said, if the network wants to accommodate a paying customer, I see no problem with them doing so.

I can not believe this at all. He is not even President yet and he has already taken over one of the major media sources. This is just like the Soviet Union.

So the city of Denver wasn't reaping financial benefits from the patronage of the DNC?

Didn't the NFL move the opening night of the NFL season up to be sure that McCain had a huge football audiience leading into his acceptance speech?

I am going to let the cat out of the bag now seeing as I have taken a lot of slack for some of my posts here. If I post something that is very pro or anti democrat or republican, I am joking. I would have hoped that these types of over the top for me posts would have given that away.

We're talking about the Fox network, not Fox News. Its the network of Family Guy, the Simpsons and their shows are mostly slanted to a younger audience. Buying time on Fox News Network would be futile.
