why does my local fox affiliate here in southern california read that PRESIDENT OBAMA WINS ELECTION?  what the darn is that?  reason why i am asking is that i always thought no matter how garbage was going good or bad, the republican party always claims victory and never concedes?  what the hell is going on?

Carl Rove on FOX News is saying the election isn't over yet...but, it's not looking good for Romney.  Especially since FOX News has already called the election for Obama.

FOX is actually pretty smart, with all their loony-bins, many non-conservatives toon in just to see the meltdown.  Their ratings are great, no doubt.

i am american, born and raised, but i just don't understand why people can be so heavily into politics, but as long as they are being what i know about many fans of teams around the country, i just don't understand why a fox channel would run a stream on their tv screen that a democrat won.  to me that's like the red sox congratulating the yankees for winning the world series.

I think that they are (ironically) just trying to present the news.  What else do you expect them to do? Ignore the whole election thing like it is not happening.

i expect republicans to be republicans just like they have been before anyone had any idea what would really happen.  How could the romney line for betting get anywhere close to +210 leading up to today?  reason why i am asking is because i was looking to bet on this election but then really strange crap and line movement happened.  all of a sudden earlier today i saw obama at -370 or whatever and then i said myself which side would really win?  my eyes saw nothing but mind games and then i saw a fox station stream the fact that obama had won when so many people know that fox news is known for leaning heavily in favor of the republican party, just asking!
