MSNBC’s #Fail re Iowa’s “Polls Closing”
Two hours ago MSNBC displayed a countdown clock under this headine: “Iowa Polls Closing [at]…” Iowa polls closing? Polls aren’t open in Iowa. Iowa isn’t polling today. Iowa has a caucus system. What the hell was MSNBC thinking? [That we’re really, really dumb.]
Now (@7:22 p.m. ET) they’re running a chyron that reads: “Doors Now Open At Caucus Sites in Iowa’s 99 Counties.” Ah yeah, that’s more like it. But again, what was with the polls closing thing?
