(Newser) – The GOP is crying foul after Fox announced it would delay a possible World Series Game 6 to air a 30-minute Barack Obama spot, CNN reports. Obama has bought airtime from Fox, CBS, and NBC for Oct. 29. “Not only is Obama putting politics before principle, he’s putting it before our national pastime,” a spokesman said. First pitch would be delayed from 8:20 pm to 8:38.
