Question for Conservatives- If Fox was so blatanly wrong about this election, in spite of the facts,

what else might they be wrong about?

Do you ever question your news sources? Might they have a vested interest in NOT telling you the facts?

Face facts, and realize that the Right Wing Media have been lying to you, and to themselves. If they hadn't been, they would not have been so very, very wrong about Romney's chances, when there was a mountain of evidence pointing, correctly, to Romney's eventual defeat.

Any news outlet that was grounded in reality knew what was a very real possibility. The polling proved correct, Nate Silver was right, and math doesn't lie.

So, if you're not questioning your 'fact sources' now, perhaps you should be, no?

2. It was never going to be a close election, electorally

And yes, they did lead their viewers to assume a possible victory, when there were very few paths for him to reach 270 electoral votes, by "unskewing" all those polls (aside from the very wrong Gallup and Rasmussen ones) and bringing on the Dick Morrises and George Wills to spout absolutely impossible electoral college outcomes.

Nate Silver was laughed at for absolutely correctly predicting a 91 per cent chance of Obama winning the electoral college, based on the polls, and a 2 1/2 to 3 point popular vote margin in favor of Obama. That is exactly what happened. And no, that is not a close election really.

It's a far bigger win than GW Bush ever had.

4. Chuck Toadie of MSNBC

was rationalizing a 269 draw at best for Obama, with all his giving even BLUE states to Romney. Oh, it was not just FAUX News. ALL the media was bending over back wards to promote a Romney victory. I guess all the brainwashing didn't work.

It wasn't close either. This is a perfect example of living in the bubble.
