But Gray Davis didn't play Conan The Barbarian, did he?

The FCC's Equal Time doctrine is causing some stations some consternation, apparently. The Washington Post reports that:

Arnold Schwarzenegger's foray into California's gubernatorial recall election poses a dilemma for broadcasters who might be tempted to show his films during the race: Doing so would allow rival candidates to demand equal time.

For that reason, broadcasters in California will likely not air Schwarzenegger movies such as "Total Recall" and the "Terminator" or a repeat of a "Diff'rent Strokes" episode with Gary Coleman for the next few months.
