    Oops: NBC Accidentally Publishes Election Results Showing Obama Win

    Oops: NBC Accidentally Publishes Election Results Showing Obama Win



    MSNBC* apparently published a test-page for Tuesday’s election results by accident, calling the election for President Barack Obama, Politico’s Dylan Byers reports.
    While the “Presidential results” show GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney winning the popular vote 55-43 percent, the chart shows President Obama winning the election with 280 electoral votes to Romney’s 257.
    While MSNBC may be excited to proclaim Obama’s victory, the network may want to wait until the votes are counted.
    (source: Politico)



    *Update (4:18 p.m. ET): Dylan Byers of Politico issued the following correction to his article: “An earlier version of this post attributed the maps to MSNBC, because NBCNews pages are currently hosted on MSNBC.com. The map belongs to NBC, not MSNBC.”

    This type of mass manipulative reporting probably cost Romney votes as some of those planning to vote for him may have assumed this bogus report was accurate and simply did not cast their vote ..

    Also, this was not an 'accident.' Before it was broadcast, it had to go through multiple editor reviews prior to going live with it.

    More on this from our oh so partisan and UN-biased media news groups.


    MSNBC Calls Election for Obama — Before Polls Open

    posted on November 6, 2012 by Tad Cronn


    Whoops.

    Call it “Dewey Defeats Truman” 2012.


    MSNBC accidentally posted a “test” page early on Election Day showing President Obama winning re-election with 280 electoral votes to Mitt Romney’s 257, even though the same page showed Romney winning the popular vote by 55-43 percent.
    In every presidential election, the major networks try to beat each other by seeing who can call the election for the Democrat candidate earliest. In the 2004 race, some news outlets were calling the race for Kerry by the early afternoon on the West Coast.


    As deep in the tank for Obama as most mainstream media are today, expect the same sort of behavior as the news outlets rush to call the race for Obama, hoping to dull the GOP turnout.


    Just don’t pay any attention to it. Unless there is a landslide for one candidate or the other, the media can’t reliably name the winner of the race until sometime in the evening. The voter exit polls most media groups use to make such calls are invariably weighted toward Democrats, so it’s important for conservative voters to do their duty, even as it gets near poll closing time.


    Elsewhere, the Election Day shenanigans are heating up. The Black Panthers are back at that same Philadelphia polling place where in 2008 they harassed and intimidated any voter they thought was not voting for Obama. Thanks to Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusing to prosecute, the Black Panthers have a license to intimidate.
    And they’re apparently using that license. There are reports that court-appointed GOP election observers are being tossed out of polling places (in at least one case, physically so) in Philadelphia and replaced with Black Panthers and other Democrats by the Head Judges of Elections, who are all Democrats.

    Fox News as of this writing is reporting that Pennsylvania judge has ordered reinstatement of all 70 GOP observers.


    In at least one Philadelphia ward, the polling place was decorated with a huge wall mural of President Obama, right behind the voting booths.
    Elsewhere, a group of GOP senators were complaining that the Department of Defense was not delivering ballots in time to military service members, who tend to vote Republican. Thousands of ballots may not reach overseas service members until well after the election.


    So as you go out to vote today, be careful — there are liberals running wild. If you see anything suspicious, alert your local election officials.
    Now, go forth and conquer.
