Oprah Offers To Produce Obama's Half Hour Infomercial
Oprah has offered to produce Barack Obama’s network extravaganza set to air on Wednesday, October 29, 2008.
Drudge is reporting:
Oprah Winfrey is offering to “produce” the half-hour Barack Obama advertisement set to air on Oct. 29, a top source tells the DRUDGE REPORT. The Daytime TV dynamo has even offered up her studio space in Chicago.
“She’s been begging Obama to let her help,” a source explains.
It is not clear if the Obama campaign would pay Winfrey for any production services.
Requests for comment from Oprah went un-returned.
The Obama campaign finale is seen as a high risk move, designed to remove any remaining voter doubts on the first term senator.
CBS, NBC and FOX will air the info-commercial, with the start time of a potential World Series Game 6 being pushed back by eight minutes.
Oprah refused to invite popular Alaska Governor Sarah Palin on her show after she was nominated as Republican vice presidential candidate.
Oprah said at the time:
There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over.
