Apparently, everyone at Rupert Murdoch's properties has learned a very valuable lesson: When in doubt, turn to Jack Bauer. That's what Fox News' Chris Wallace did when he launched his "Obama Watch," a running tally of the time that has passed since the moment Wallace says Barack Obama agreed to appear on Wallace's show. And, of course, said tally is done in classic "24" style. (Some Democrats, including Obama, have been reluctant to appear on Fox recently, in part because plenty of people in the party's base would like Democrats to ignore the network. Obama did give Fox an interview this past Friday.)

Video of the segment is below.
