President Barack Obama will spend more time talking college basketball. He will apparently be on CBS’ coverage of the NCAA Championship Game, which will take place Monday night. Obama spent time picking his brackets on ESPN before the tournament began, and he took British Prime Minister David Cameron to an NCAA Tournament game.
Of course, it is nothing short of beneficial for Obama to take advantage of the CBS airtime in an election year. I guess the question is would the network readily offer programming space to anybody who occupies the White House under such circumstances?
I'm so glad Obama has time to fill out a March Madness bracket and make a Pinterest account. Who's running the country? Biden? #scary

@ABC Obama's out of touch on pre-existing conditions too. Any man who chooses ncaa basketball over his country is not worthy of presidency.

Everyone knows espn promotes Obama every chance it can. Not just for NCAA basketball. Also air clips from David Letterman almost daily!
