How Fred Thompson Avoids A Debate, But Appears on FNC Anyhow

Thompson_9.01a.jpgThe NYTimes reports, soon-to-be-announced Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson “has come under a good deal of criticism in New Hampshire…for scheduling his formal announcement for next Thursday morning and thus skipping the Republican debate in Manchester on Wednesday night.”

But, the Times’ Adam Nagourney reports, Thompson will be on FNC that night in another way: “Campaign officials said Friday that Mr. Thompson had bought a 30-second spot that would be televised nationally on the Fox News Channel, the network carrying the debate, just as viewers are tuning in at the onset.”

>More: Thompson will also be on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Wednesday night.
