CBS Shows Election Results Obama Wins! Huh?

CBS Shows Election Results Obama Wins! Huh?

First,  I am writing this in the hopes this is nothing more than a video editing package prank because if it is not we are in BIG trouble!  On Friday,  October 19, 2012, CBS affiliate KPHO in Arizona accidentally runs (Khyron) election results data November 6, 2012!  The split was 43/40,  with 40, 237,966 to 38,116,216 declaring Obama the winner. This should scare the buttered popcorn out of everyone.

During the show “The People’s Court”,  a graphic was posted at the bottom of the television screen for seventeen seconds and displayed Obama has won the election with 99% of the precincts reporting.  Frankly, we live in a time when this can easily be faked by downloading the video and adding the graphic later.  We will know for sure if these are the exact numbers on November 6, 2012. I am on the fence about this after former President Bush stole his election in Florida.  Not much else to say except take a gander at this and keep your eyes wide open!

According to the, who broke this story, a KPHO spoke person made the following statement:

UPDATE 12:10 p.m.:

Michele Wallace of KPHO told The Daily Caller this was the result of a mistake made with a test graphic:

“On Friday October 19th during a test of KPHO- CBS 5’s election returns we inadvertently aired a test graphic for about 15 seconds in an episode of Peoples Court,” Wallace said. “The mistake was caught quickly and taken off the screen. With the election about 2 weeks away, the TV station routinely tests its equipment to ensure our viewers have the very latest’s results on election night.  We regret the error and apologize to any viewer who was confused by the mistake.”
