Forget the bunting and confetti, the balloons and the funny hats. The new symbol of the American election is the oversize touch pad. During the 2008 election, CNN unveiled its "magic wall" and made John King, his fingertips whisking states red and blue, the hippest geek of presidential politics. Four years later, election night 2012 was a visual monument to the iPad generation, with all the major news networks sporting maps equipped with similar wizardry. CNN, MSNBC and Fox News reported returns with speed guaranteed to please the most app-addicted, devoting far more time to CG-heavy demographic deconstruction than to the traditional talking-head gab fest.

In an acknowledgment of his tightening race with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney will appear on "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace this month, the network announced, his first Sunday show appearance in two years.   For much of this year, Romney has employed the strategy of GOP presumed front-runner: agreeing to far fewer television interviews than his rivals and appearing in reliably friendly venues like "Hannity. " During the summer when the former Massachusetts governor was campaigning heavily in the early primary state of New Hampshire, he took questions from reporters regularly and engaged town-hall-style events where he would also field questions from voters.

Super Bowl Sunday will feature more than one marquee matchup in 2011. A Fox News spokeswoman and the White House each confirm that Bill O'Reilly, host of the Fox News Channel's top-rated prime-time show, will interview President Obama as part of the Fox network's pregame show before the NFL championship game on Feb. 6. The news was first posted by the Drudge Report. It won't be the first time Obama has sat down with "The Factor" host. During the 2008 presidential campaign, O'Reilly interviewed the then-Democratic nominee in York, Pa., on the final night of the Republican National Convention.

Is Mitt Romney a thin-skinned candidate who dislikes being challenged on his record? That's the impression left by Bret Baier, the Fox News Channel anchor who interviewed Romney this week about Romney's complaints about the exchange. Baier showed up on Bill O' Reilly's show on Fox on Wednesday night to say that Romney had, when the interview was over, groused about Baier's “overly aggressive” tone, which he said was "uncalled for," and that he was particularly unhappy about being quizzed yet again about the healthcare plan he helped enact in Massachusetts.

Mitt Romney has ditched President Obama in favor of some red meat for fiscally conscious New Hampshire voters in his latest campaign ad (see video below). The new 30-second spot that launched Wednesday quotes Romney from a September debate on the need to rein in federal spending. "We're not going to balance the budget just by pretending that all they have to do is take out the waste. We're going to have to cut spending," he says. "The right answer for America is to stop the growth of the federal government and to start the growth of the private sector.
