Media Mischief Eyed as Polling Pandemonium Ensues

With suspect timing, Fox News may have just predicted their own looming trouble.

In the media’s quest for ratings and revenue, they have often crossed the invisible line of decency in pursuit of personal gain.

This is simply the nature of corporate greed, which is intrinsically woven throughout the tapestry of the mainstream media through their advertising income.  It’s not their fault, per se, but their certainly doesn’t seem to be some auxiliary effort to remedy the situation either.

This feverish fight for supremacy is undoubtedly one of the great corrupters of the once-venerable free press, whose quest for truth has been reduced to a quest for trinkets.

In the whirlwind of electoral excitement, some networks go too far.

Fox News called the U.S. House of Representatives for the Democrats on Tuesday night just after 9:30 p.m. EST — with polls still open in California for nearly an hour and a half.

No other network followed Fox News’ lead, with CNN and MSNBC preferring instead to track close races, largely east of the Mississippi River.

Wild speculation is one thing, but the Fox News was broadcasting projected results while Americans on the West Coast still had time to decide whether or not they would be voting.

At least seven races were thought to be crucial to the final outcome in California, with Democrats targeting seven Republican-held seats where Hillary Clinton won more votes than Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

Fox News’ early call may have discouraged voters from participating in California — and in other western states whose polls remained open.

As of this writing, no official statement has been issued by Fox News on the matter.
