TIM: “Sept. 5 (Bloomberg) — Republican presidential candidate John McCain attracted a record 38.9 million television viewers to his acceptance speech last night, surpassing Democratic rival Barack Obama and McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin. The total exceeded the 38.4 million who watched Obama accept the Democratic nomination in Denver Aug. 28, Nielsen Media Research said today in an e-mailed statement.”
Today, the Obama campaign debuted a TV spot morphing an image of John McCain into Paris Hilton.
STEVE: Does Diebold own any cable companies?
TIM: Agreed, so odd. How’d he get more viewers than Palin? Unless people tuned in just to confirm that he’s still alive.
