Check the Skies for Piglets: Fox Gets it Right!

by Deb Cupples | In know. Given that Fox's pundits unquestioningly sold their viewers on the Iraq war (and a number of other dismal Bush Administration policies), it's immensely ironic that Fox pundits are now criticizing other media outlets for outright naming Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee with three weeks still left in the primaries. Check out the video below:

I know. The delegate math is against Hillary Clinton at this point. But the popular vote hasn't decisively gone to Obama because it hasn't been fully counted.

Do the various outspoken pundits actually know how many Democrats will vote in the last remaining primaries? How many of them will vote for each Democratic candidate? Kentucky and West Virgina, alone, have more than 2.2 million registered Democrats combined.

Do the pundits know how the DNC will resolve the Michigan and Florida issues on May 31?

Under ordinary circumstances, I would know, but my mind-reading skills are vacationing in the Caribbean (Martinique, I think).

And remember, so-called super-delegates can change their minds before the August convention -- and some of them might (again) if Hillary ends up with more popular votes.

I'm not saying that Obama won't win the nomination. I'm just saying that our media would be wise to wait out these last three weeks before proudly proclaiming a winner -- if only because there are a few unknowns out there.


Thanks to No Quarter for pointing out the video clip. Memeorandum has commentary.
