Media mystery

I must have read or heard a half dozen reports in the media of how bold, or bizarre, it was for Mike Huckabee to leave Iowa the night before the caucuses to travel to California to appear on the Tonight Show on the first night the show was back on the air after the writer's strike.

Why was this so strange? Didn't it occur to anyone in the media that Iowans watch TV too, and that Mike probably reached more of them sitting next to Jay Leno than he would have at another shopping mall rally in Keokuk?
