    Wow.

    If he does buy the other networks and creates a road-block on all four of the big networks, the exposure would be monumental.

    I can't even begin to wonder how much this will cost.

    Primetime in the middle of the fall new-episode season, and for a half hour?

    Once again, wow.

    OMG this makes me very excited!

    He's really going balls out to try to win this election!

    See, this is what opting out of Public Finance does for you :lol:

    GObama!

    Fox News would probably charge him five times the amount they charge everyone else.

    Though I must admit, seeing PRO Obama ads in commerical breaks between The O'Reilly Factor and Hannity/Colmes would be freakin hilarious.

    I don't think this is going to be paid advertisement Robert. I think this is going to be a 30 minute "special" where Obama speaks directly to the voters about his plans for the future of this country!

    How amazing would that be just days before the election!

    They can't.

    As a network or a local television station, you have to sell time to political candidates for the lowest unit rate. In this case the unit would be a half hour of primetime, but they can't charge any more for it than they would another person or entity which wanted to buy a similiar slot.
