Obama Buys Prime-time on CBS

(And no, that headline doesn't mean he's been paying the anchors and commentators.)
Barack Obama has purchased a half-hour of airtime on CBS, sources confirm. The Obama campaign will air a half-hour primetime special on Wednesday, Oct. 29, at 8 p.m.

The last presidential candidate to do this was Ross Perot in 1992. Apparently, NBC has also signed a similar deal.
