THE MAN WHO SAVED TELEVISION?:

A 'Law & Order' Presidential Candidate? (Michael D. Shear, 3/29/07, Washington Post)

For now, anyway, Thompson's supporters are apparently stuck with reruns of "Law & Order." But his fans could be disappointed on one front if he does ultimately run.

Election law requires that TV stations give all candidates equal time. Experts said Thompson -- like the last movie-star candidate, Ronald Reagan -- would probably vanish from the airwaves except in news programming. That would probably mean that he would leave "Law & Order" and that networks would not air his reruns during the campaign.

In the 1970s and 1980s, stations dropped "Bedtime for Bonzo" and other Reagan movies during his campaigns for governor of California and for president.


Getting rid of the omnipresent Law & Order is reason enough to vote for him.
