On Oct. 19, 2012, two CBS affiliates — KPHO in Phoenix, Arizona, and WCPO in Cincinnati, Ohio — had already called the election with Obama as the winner.
Randy Hall reports for NewsBusters, Oct. 22, 2012, that during last Friday’s edition of “The People’s Court” at 3:30 p.m. on KPHO, Phoenix, a “lower-third graphic” scrolled across the bottom of the screen and stated that with 99% of all precincts reporting, Obama had won the nationwide vote, 43% v. 40% or 40,237, 966 votes v. Romney’s 38,116,216.
After 17 seconds, the banner disappeared.
Soon after, WCPO in Cleveland posted a list of vote totals for the Nov. 6 election that again declared Obama the victor in the presidential election and even stated that Ohio’s Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown was re-elected to his U.S. Senate seat.

Email Alerts Describe 9/11 Benghazi Consulate Assault Unfolding
By John Parkinson | ABC OTUS News – 3 hrs ago
A series of email alerts sent as Obama administration officials monitored the attack on the U.S consulate in Benghazi last month are the latest to shine light on the chaotic events that culminated in the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
The names of the individual recipients of the emails, first reported by CBS News but independently obtained by ABC News Tuesday evening, are redacted. A source who requested anonymity said it appears they are sent by the State Department Operations Center to distribution lists and email accounts for the top national security officials at the State Department, Pentagon, the FBI, the White House Situation Room and the office of the Director of National IntelligencSource
White House told of militant claim two hours after Libya attack: emails
By Mark Hosenball | Reuters – 4 hrs ago
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Officials at the White House and State Department were advised two hours after attackers assaulted the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for the attack, official emails show.
The emails, obtained by Reuters from government sources not connected with U.S. spy agencies or the State Department and who requested anonymity, specifically mention that the Libyan group called Ansar al-Sharia had asserted responsibility for the attacks.
The brief emails also show how U.S. diplomats described the attack, even as it was still under way, to Washington.
U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Benghazi assault, which President Barack Obama and other U.S. officials ultimately acknowledged was a "terrorist" attack carried out by militants with suspected links to al Qaeda affiliates or sympathizers.
Administration spokesmen, including White House spokesman Jay Carney, citing an unclassified assessment prepared by the CIA, maintained for days that the attacks likely were a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim film.Source
Like conspiracies, Cole? Please feel free to explain how Romney is responsible for all this again.
