Audiences don't trust the news media in general, polls show, but do trust the coverage of shows they like. That is steering Obama and Romney toward softer, 'friendlier' shows to a level unprecedented in a presidential campaign.
Michelle Obama, who was a guest on Jay Leno's 'Tonight Show' Monday, recounted her trip to London for the Olympics and shared giggles with an Olympian. It was part entertainment, part campaign stop for the first lady.
Rick Santorum told 'Tonight Show' host Jay Leno, 'This was a letter to my supporters – who were for me.' Not Mitt Romney. The socially liberal Leno also pressed Mr. Santorum on cultural issues.
OK, Mitt Romney was kidding about that Tuesday during his first appearance of the campaign season on 'The Tonight Show' with Jay Leno. GOP rival Rick Santorum is 'basically a good guy,' Romney said.
No, Ron Paul isn't a martial arts master. The Jay Leno clip is a spoof on the fact that Paul won't accept Secret Service protection. But if he did, his code name would be 'Bulldog.'
In recent TV appearances, first lady Michelle Obama competed with Ellen DeGeneres in a push-up contest, and she tried to get Jay Leno to eat something healthy. On Monday's 'Letterman,' maybe she can get her host to take part in a sack race.
Ron Paul has about $1.6 million in the bank, according to the FEC, whereas he spent $5 million in January. It’s easy to think that this month he has to raise more, spend less, or dive into the red.
