However, the ever increasing Activist-in-Chief interruptions is beginning to wear thin for network executives who are losing millions of advertising dollars with each episode of Movin' On Up to the West Wing.
After having nearly the entire fall season sidelined by the campaign, one exasperated network executive said
"At a time when we're struggling not only financially but to build audiences, this doesn't help on either front. These repeated interruptions -- and the rumor of even more to come -- really make it difficult to build audience flow and loyalty. We will all lose one or two million dollars for this."Another said,
"I believe in the president and his policies, and as broadcasters we have a responsibility to provide the airtime. But these frequent primetime requests are wreaking serious havoc with our schedule and our advertisers. Ratings are down everywhere and the airtime is costing us all significant dollars when we can least afford it."Funny how the network execs didn't feel the same obligation for the public good when President George Bush needed to talk to the public about Muslim maniacs wanting to kill us. Several times the networks refused airtime requests from President Bush. But, as soon as Liberals start losing their own money to bad investing strategies, they can't offer enough time. Now Obama is taking too much.
