10. A simple explanation: it's the "Star Wars" paradigm.
Just as the federal goverment spends uber-billions on missile defense, which does not actually work, and other black-budget billions on intelligence which couldn't keep guys with box-cutters from destroying the WTC or keep us from invading the wrong country, it is reasonable to expect that the networks would spend top dollar on the most sophisticated exit-polling in history and accept that whoops, wasn't very good, oh well, nothing to see here.

Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations!

They even rigged the final exit poll results the same way that the missile defense tests are jimmied to provide the desired results: ineptly.
