They say that one incident is a fluke, two is a coincidence, and three is a trend. It might even be a conspiracy.
So last night as I’m cruising around the intertubes, I stumbled upon this little report by Texas Darlin’. It shows an ABC affiliate, WCPO in Cincinnati, displaying winning results for Obama two weeks before the election takes place.Here’s the screen grab:
I thought, well, maybe it’s a mistake, but I’ll keep an eye on it. But then this morning, I was treated to this story via The Daily Caller.
The 2012 presidential election is still more than two weeks away, but on Friday a CBS News affiliate in Arizona called the race for President Barack Obama.
For 17 seconds, Phoenix, Arizona CBS News affiliate KPHO ran a lower third graphic that showed that Obama had won the Nov. 6 election over Gov. Mitt Romney with 99% of the precincts reporting. The lower third graphic appeared around 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 19, during an episode of “The People’s Court.”
The CBS News graphic showed Obama winning the election with 43 percent of the vote nationwide to Romney’s 40 percent -– or 40,237,966 votes to 38,116,216. It is unclear who garnered the other 17 percent in the fictional election results.
It could be nothing, and I might be paranoid. One might be a mistake, but two incidents of this happening gives off a stink. If we see a third incident in the next couple of weeks, it’s definitely a trend. Or a conspiracy.
At any rate, this is now something to watch for for the next two weeks, of that I am sure. I wouldn’t put it past the mainstream media at all to try to manufacture a win on election night with erroneous results, coordinated by Team Obama players, of course. Of course Romney is no Al Gore, and you can be sure he won’t fall for it and conceded until all the votes are counted. I’d look for more of a 1948 scenario, than a 2000 one.
What’s your take on this?
