After calling the lefty CNN now says Honduras election to close to call

After CNN, ABC and BBC casually declared the leftist victor in the Honduras presidential election as if it were fact, CNN today now says election too close to call. With only half the votes counted, the difference is razor thin:
"With about 46 percent of the votes in Sunday's election counted, Manuel Zelaya of the opposition Liberal Party had 47.9 percent of the vote to 47.4 percent for Porfirio Lobo Sosa of the ruling National Party, according to the Supreme Electoral Tribunal."
May the right man win, not the left man.

    I am not the least bit surprised in this latest development. The MSM is now to the point, where it can be officially classified as "out of control". Although those of us that use logic as a guideline, have know this for years.

    I think that when the media brought down Nixon, it became drunk with power and an delusionally, over-inflated sense of importance. It empowered them, to the point of becoming reckless.

    Politicians do the same thing.

    You are right Paw. Ultimately it was his behavior. He was the one responsible, but, the media played a big role in it. Otherwise, it would have all been swept under the rug. And, it forever changed the media, in terms of how they view themselves.
