Red Vs. Blue On Tv

This is really interesting, from today’s NYT: “When deciding where to run his television advertisements, President Bush is much more partial than Senator John Kerry to crime shows like ‘Cops,’ ‘Law & Order’ and ‘JAG.’ Mr. Kerry leans more to lighter fare, like ‘Judge Judy,’ ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ and ‘Late Show with David Letterman.’ Those choices do not reflect either man’s taste in television, but critical differences in the advertising strategies of their campaigns, which are spending more money for commercials than any other campaigns in presidential history.”
