First reaction to Obama's win by network news anchors

Did anyone else notice how stunned the anchors on NBC/CBS/ABC appeared when it was first called for Obama. (in fact, I think it was ABC that held off giving Obama a win for some time after the other stations did).

The anchors' faces were so long.

...and they immediately went into tirades on how Obama's negative campaigning worked. Not a mention of Romney's and Ryan's lying, idiocy, caught on tape actions, and just the fact that the GOP had nobody better to run for them. Nothing.

I realized then, that all these news networks are most certainly biased. I haven't watched network news in years, and that night reaffirmed to me why I stopped watching it—and why I ask my wife to change channels when she turns it on.

Then again, maybe they had hoped it was going to be a long night. I dunno, but again, I know why I stopped watching their BS.

1. I went to sleep about 9:00 and opened the mini at 3:30 to check the results.

 

Then I went back to sleep.

2. Actually, the guy that moderated the last debate stuck up for Obama

against the other two he was sitting with. I was a bit surprised.

Don't know if I can find a clip or not.

3. So much for the liberal media.

They're all in bed with Republicans.

4. "Liberal Media" is a joke

 

I saw fundits on Faux talking about it and even THEY wanted to retire the meme.

5. I turned to FOX that night to see everybody's reactions,

and boy did Megyn Kelly look glum. And Karl Rove looked as nervous as a mouse in a room full of cats.
