McCain, Obama on newscasts tonight

Both candidates will appear on all three network news shows.

Both presidential candidates will reportedly be hitting all three network news shows tonight to discuss the economy and the continuing negotiations for a bailout plan. At the moment, it seems like they'll have a lot to talk about. The deal reached in principle and announced earlier Thursday seems to have broken down, at least to some extent, and the bipartisan meeting held at the White House this afternoon didn't result in any agreement.

Now, of course, this brings up a question -- how, exactly, does appearing on all three network newscasts fit with McCain's declaration that he's suspended his campaign?
