Creative Promotion: Sunday Shows Edition

Politico’s Dylan Byers catches some creative promotion from CBS this week. NBC’s “Meet the Press” had an exclusive with GOP nominee Mitt Romney, while CBS (and ABC) spoke to his running mate Paul Ryan.

Of course, CBS News had interviews with President Obama and anonymous Navy SEAL “Mark Owen” in the can already, with Obama set to air on the “CBS Evening News” and Owen on “60 Minutes.”

As Byers notes, in the program guide, President Obama was listed as the lead guest, with Owen also listed.

Footage of Pelley’s interview with President Obama took up exactly two-and-a-half minutes of Face The Nation. Footage from Pelley’s interview with Owen lasted less than thirty seconds.
