Christine O’Donnell’s Campaign Too Dumb To Get Infomercial Tape In On Time
So, about that 24-minute ad?
"1 minute until the premiere of our 30 minute feature. Tune in to meet all the heart warming people I've met on the campaign trail. Ch. 28," O'Donnell tweeted Sunday night.
But the ad never aired.
A few minutes later, O'Donnell tweeted: "Okay... this is NOT our show! Must be a programming mix up. We will get back to you..."
The source, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive campaign operations, said the station "forgot to air it." [...]
Tim Qualls, executive producer at Channel 28, said in an interview the ad did not air because O'Donnell's campaign did not bring a tape to the production studio by the agreed upon deadline. She reserved the time on Thursday, for $2,500, and agreed to bring a tape by Friday at 5 p.m., Qualls said.
HMM. WHICH SIDE DO WE BELIEVE? THE INCOMPETENT CAMPAIGN OR THE TEEVEE STATION? Instead, the channel probably played the 1986 teevee movie The Worst Witch , which is also probably the name of that O'Donnell ad. [ WP ]
