Not a single major network will air Barack Obama's major announcement on immigration tonight since it's November sweeps and Barack Obama is not nearly as interesting to watch as whatever passes for primetime programming in a sweeps month. And the White House has taken to whining to DC reporters that it's simply not fair.
“In 2006, Bush gave a 17 minute speech that was televised by all three networks that was about deploying 6000 national guard troops to the border. Obama is making a 10 minute speech that will have a vastly greater impact on the issue. And none of the networks are doing it. We can’t believe they were aggrieved that we announced this on Facebook,” a senior administration official told POLITICO.
