Marianne Gingrich’s interview with Brian Ross will be the second, and by far the dominant story of the day. (Early assessment of the interview clips: Devastating.)
The third story will be all-day debate prep and speculation on cable and talk radio on how the first two stories will impact tonight’s debate, and whether lingering anger at Newt’s attacks on Bain are a real anchor on his campaign, even if the Marianne interview hadn’t aired. (CNN debate moderator John King all but told me yesterday he will have to raise the Marianne Gingrich interview.)
The fourth news cycle of the day will be the debate itself (and its parallel analysis in real-time on Twitter.)
The fifth news cycle will be the post-debate takes.
And tomorrow I expect to see a Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell endorsement of Mitt Romney. (See his “not yet” interview, also below.)
It is a great day to be in talk radio.
How GOP voters ought really analyze all of this and more is the subject of my column at Townhall.com this morning: “MSM and the 13 State Election.”
The column’s bottom line: Correct for the lie of the green, and look to the 13 states that will decide the election.
