EAST LANSING, Michigan (CNN) - Politics always makes for strange bedfellows, but Sunday on the trail brought one of the odder pairings of this campaign season: CNN and FOX.
The press bus following Republican presidential candidate John McCain to a Michigan campaign event sped its way into a broken fan belt.
Reporters on board - who noticed the smell coming from the engine - poured out of the bus when it pulled over, and into the motor home of Harold Voorhees, a Michigan volunteer who’d been trailing the Straight Talk Express and its caravan in case of overflow, or a roadside emergency.
Your CNN team rode the rest of the way to the East Lansing campaign stop in style, perched on a bed with FOX’s Malini Bawa and reporting embeds from ABC and NBC. Motor home and media alike arrived safely.
