If Romney and Obama only take 83% of the AZ vote between both of them, I will buy a hat and eat it.

If those are the real numbers, and 78 million people cast 83% of the vote in a state with a population of 6 and a half million, then we've got bigger issues than the news agency.

These are the numbers from 2112. AZ population is now 120 million and the race was between Malia Obama IV and Mitt Romney's brain in a jar.

Wasn't this most likely just them running a test and they put it up live by accident?

Or the time agency thing, we can go with that. Is Captain Jack having some fun?

So, basically, the station was running a test and accidentally put it on the air. Now I'll probably have to listen to a bunch of teatards buzzing about on their rascals and angrily furrowing their brows as they desperately try to unravel this latest Kenyan conspiracy.

FTFA: "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."

So, it was seen by tens of people?

You are 100% correct. Just the idea that someone invested the time to key in the data for the graphic to appear on the screen is troubling. Was the person just trying out the option? Were they building the actual view that they planned on showing the night of November 6th? This is really, really disturbing.

Had it been the other way around - the graphic showing that Romney was ahead of Obama would still make me feel dishonored. Is this what our country has come to? The only way to win or achieve is through manipulation? Sad, very sad.


Yes, the fact that someone took 60 seconds to type in some random numbers in a spreadsheet is deeply, deeply troubling. SOMEBODY HOLD AN INVESTIGATION.

Ya know..I'm not a huge Obama supporter. In fact, I've been quite disappointed with much of what has, and hasn't, transpired throughout his first term.

However, the fact that the right wing Republicans have been such whiny, pissy little babies ever since they lost in 2008, I feel like I have to vote for Obama simply to keep them from winning! Enabling this type of behavior is like rewarding children who act up in public by giving them something to make them quiet down..rather than giving them the whap on the butt they so desperately deserve and taking them out to the car.

The right has lost their collective marbles. They have created their own version of "the world around them" where they see things that do not exist and that sane, rational people do not see. The rage and anger they exhibit is certifiable insanity. They are truly deranged. No president has ever has ever been the target of this level of vitriol, been the subject of so much manufactured controversy, jaw dropping conspiracies and sheer bullshiat or this amount of unfettered rage.

In a way, I hope Romney wins..because when he doesn't magically turn everything into sunshine, lollipops and rainbows and actually makes things worse than they already are, the GOP won't win another Presidential election for the next couple of decades.

I'm pretty sure people said that in 2004 and 2008

I doubt it.
 
2012-10-22 10:13:25 AM
This is proof that the election is rigged.

Romney's son owning voting machines... that's the free market. Voter registrations dumped in a dumpster... That's just like ACORN. Ohio GOP admits they don't want to make it easy for black people to vote... Rules are rules. PA GOP brags that the voter ID laws will promise a Romney win... Well, you need ID to buy cigarettes, right?

A 12 second scoll during the People's Court... Proof of fraud.
 
2012-10-22 10:14:17 AM
I've never heard of this happening on a TV channel, but weren't there a few newspapers in 2008 (I think the Chicago Sun-Times was one) who got "caught" feeding dummy data into their election website a few days before the election to test the system, and conspiracy nutters were trying to claim they were giving Obama a boost in his numbers before a vote was cast?

You're right, because if Romney doesn't pull it off, they'll blame it on Obama!

Oh please, that's what every loser says: "Gee, I hope so-and-so wins so that everyone sees what a lousy president he is!"

It's like noticing that the ship's Captain advocates a "Captain's and Captain's floozies to the lifeboots first" during his "I noticed we're having issues with an iceberg" speech" and thinking that he should remain the captain because then nobody will want his brother as a captain after the boat sinks.

Yup. This.

(Plus I love the comments about how 78 million people voted in a state with 6 million people; FTFA: "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.")

Actually, I thought it was probably a station intern, unfamiliar with the ticker, learning how to use the software, and the buttons, probably being difficult to read or not clearly labelled (like those bathroom signs at theme restaurants) pressed flush instead of dump and the numbers went live.
