The Last News Cycle

That, and other news, in today’s Political Panorama.

With one day to go before Super Tuesday, it’s no longer about stump speeches and handshakes, but national media, and which candidate can come out ahead in all of the news media that will be showered on them today. Hillary Clinton appears to have the upper hand. She’s on “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric,” hosts a townhall meeting on the Hallmark Channel and then does a guest spot on “Late Show with David Letterman.” Plus she does “Entertainment Tonight,” “Extra” and “Inside Edition.” (Who said this wasn’t about entertainment and politics?) Barack Obama is on Wolf Blitzer and  Couric,  and, according to Time’s The Page,  will do  lots of radio.

But nothing grabs attention like a surprise, as Maria Shriver’s endorsement of Obama showed on Sunday.  She managed to upstage not only Bill Clinton’s visit to several black churches in Los Angeles, but Oprah Winfrey, making a return appearance to the campaign trail.

On or Off the Record:
There’s tension between the Obama campaign and the press over when conversations with Obama are on or off the record, particularly when the candidate schmoozes reporters on the campaign plane, reports the Politico’s Michael Calderone. “We’re not on the plane, in my view, to have private talks with presidential candidates,” said the New York Times’ Jeff Zeleny. “We’re here to report what they are saying and give our readers a better idea of their campaigns and their candidacies.” Similar questions have been raised on the Clinton side.

The Murdoch Chill:
Rupert Murdoch contributed to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, but his relationship with the candidate appears to have soured, reports the New York Times’ David Carr.
