Trib: Larry Craig On TV? Don’t Laugh

This started out as a joke. The punchline was to be something like this: If disgraced former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer can get himself a primetime slot on CNN, why can't disgraced former Idaho Sen. Larry Craig do the same, albeit on a statewide or regional network? It's funny - until you talk to someone who knows television. Then you'd hear about the curiosity factor. Spitzer was a political car wreck people couldn't avoid watching - the hard-charging governor was caught frequenting call girls and had to resign his office. Now CNN is pairing him with Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Kathleen Parker, and the thinking is Spitzer's notoriety is just enough to lure viewers/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Would you watch a TV program that included former U.S. senator Larry Craig?
