    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.”

    Fraud in this election will be rampant, and the U.N. monitoring, to the cheers of Crabtownboy and his ilk, will impede efforts to prevent it.

    Well, they have a 50/50 chance of being the first to break the story.

    I would like to know how they arrived the specific numbers. The gm of this station needs to comment on this asap and then lose his job.

    So they were testing their election reporting software. Big deal.

    Crabby, you should be on cloud nine. This thread is sort of like a plot of you starring in "Back to the Future."

    Your post about a landslide for Romney has stuck with me. This has the feeling of 1980.

    If that is all it was it shouldn't be that big of a deal for the station's GM to say that. The silence is what doesn't sit well with me.

    A station representative said exactly that about 4 hours after the original story ran. It's in the article that was linked to.

    This s-election was in the bag before it even started. A globalist will "win" this time around too.

    But hey at least we're still allowed to think we get to choose between the globalists.

    I'm with InTheLight - someone mistakenly displayed when they were testing. It happens. Of course it clearly shows where the networks stand. ;)
