Who says that TV will rot your brains? It can also slice, dice and blend your thought process and hinder your creative imagination all with one simple button! Besides doing all that and costing only a couple of monthly payments it can also bring you some education on the current affairs in a way that no web 2.0 application can give you. With some credibility.
Senator Obama understands that the average Joe Sixpack loves his TV. Loves it real good. So much that he bought up a half hour prime time spot to address the nation and lay it all down.
From NBC/NJ's Athena Jones
The Obama camp is confirming they have bought 30 minutes of air time in primetime on "the networks" Oct. 29.
The Obama campaign stresses it is not saying which networks -- as yet.
Working in the TV industry and aspiring to be in program development, this whole thing only makes me wonder how he'll fill up the air time. I'll take a moment to brainstorm some ideas on how he can use this 30 minutes to get across to us Joe Sixpacks.
First off, if it doesn't open with the Jeffersons theme song I'll be pissed. No exception.

So there you go. That's a couple of ideas as programing director hopeful, that I would give to Obama about what his half hour broadcast should be all about. And on a comical note, Fair and Balanced Fox hasn't let Obama buy airtime yet. They are stating that it might conflict with game 6 of the World Series.
