Do you really think that NBC, ABC, and CBS have been unbiased in
their reporting the last four years?

Yes. The mainstream networks don't belong in the same sentence as Fox.

"Media bias" is a lie made up by the GOP in the early 1990s. It's right up there with voter fraud as an invented issue.

Yes they all have.

I thought he knew everything. Illusion shattered.

Did Sean Hannity break the law while voting on Tuesday?

That's what Think Progress wondered after the Fox News host tweeted a picture of his ballot. (No surprise -- he voted the straight Conservative Party ticket.)

He's far from the only person sharing his vote on social media -- a Pew survey found that 22 percent of people have signaled who they are voting for on Facebook or Twitter. Nor is Hannity the only big name tweeting a picture of his ballot. (Kim Kardashian did it too!)

But, as Think Progress noted, Hannity tweeted the picture with his completed vote -- and that may have violated New York state law, which says that anyone who "Shows his ballot after it is prepared for voting, to any person so as to reveal the contents, or solicits a voter to show the same," could be charged with a misdemeanor. Photographing a completed ballot is prohibited in many other states as well.

Only time will tell if the police eventually show up at Hannity's door.

UPDATE: Hannity later discussed the incident on his radio show.

“I learned a big civics lesson today," he said. "... I took a picture of my vote and I tweeted it out and then I heard it's not allowed. So I had to -- I deleted it -- whoops! I didn't know, I really didn't, honestly.”

Has FOX called the election for Romney yet?

they actually are being pretty calm and reserve, some of the commentators are speaking optimistically about a Romney win, others are being more circumspect and acknowledging good strategies by Obama's team

Sarah Palin just said it's perplexing, if things keep going the way they are. She looks unhappy.

Greta saying that people could go to bed and wake up surprised.

That's not what she meant.

Unless waking up and finding out that Romney won and not Obama gives someone that.

That may be the sound of the Republican "fact" bubble bursting.

Watching Rove last night was pure entertainment. Someone on twitter said he is like Lex Luther in the Superman Films, first two a real villain, last two, comic relief.

Fox News last night was must see tv for schadenfreude fans. Can't wait to hear Dick Morris explain what happened to the landslide Romney victory he predicted. No doubt his prognostications caused the vast majority of conservatives to stay home since they clearly had this one in the bag

One of my favorite tweets from last night:

"Republicans should feel betrayed by a conservative media that told them what they wanted to hear instead of what was happening."
