Obama campaign selling Chicago election night coverage packages to news outlets

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. The Obama campaign is demanding that the media pay for where they sit to cover him on election night. Those not willing to cough up are literally left out in the cold.

Lynn Sweet at the Chicago Sun-Times calls it "an outrageous pay to play plan that caters to national elite outlets with deep pockets." I hope she covers the story election night to tell us which elite outlets cave in to this unusual, if not outrageous, demand.

Pay-to-play in Chicago? Aw, say it ain't so!

Amazing as it sounds, I recommend a back-up band just in case...
