TV News Bookers Love Senator John McCain

McCainA former presidential candidate and senior U.S. Senator is often desired as a guest across TV news, but the news networks have taken an extra liking to Arizona Senator John McCain over the last week.

Since last Tuesday, February 25, the senator has appeared 11 times across Fox News, Fox Business, CNN, and Bloomberg. The news cycle certainly merits TV news Bookers seeking out the former Republican nominee for president.

First, there was news of Defense Department cuts last Monday, which McCain is known for being against. The next day, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed a controversial bill that potentially discriminated against LGBT people, which McCain had urged her to do.

And in the last few days, McCain has been a prime target for TV news networks covering the tumultuous situation happening between Russia and the Ukraine. McCain visited anti-government protesters in Kiev back in December. Unsurprisingly, the 2008 presidential opponent of Barack Obama has voiced his displeasure with now-President Obama’s strategy and comments about the conflict.

McCain’s week-long TV news blitz only adds to his reputation as a Booker’s best friend: he ranked number one on 2013 New York Times assessment of perrenial Sunday show guests.
