AP Jumps The Shark: Calling The Democratic Nomination

Today, June 7th, our most populous state (among others) goes to vote. To announce the overall winner the night before invites speculation of foul play… Upon hearing this newsbit from someone more glued to their phone than I, the immediate question that popped in my mind over all others, was… hmmm why couldn’t they wait one more day?

I wondered in this progression…..

A) Are they trying to persuade people NOT TO VOTE…

B) Are they trying to make sure no one else calls it before them , thereby getting to be considered the “new” expert and steal their place in all future contests as the final arbiter?

C) Are they showing off how they don’t have any morals? (“We’re bad; we’re bad”) Hounding superdelegates months on end reminds one of the ambulance chasing lawyers of the late 70’s?

D) Or are they jumping on the current news mantra of trying to create news, instead of report on it?… And therefore by pre-calling for Hillary to be the winner, minimize any Sander’s future claim on the superdelegates?

If you look at numbers, it seems funny for what you don’t hear….. Minus the superdelegates, here is where all stand.

2383 Delegates are required to win.

So far Hillary has won 1812.
So far Sanders has won 1521.
Ok, granted, so looks like Hillary’s ahead…

OH, but WAIT…..

Amazon owns the Washington Post, for heavens sakes… Murdoch owns the Wall Street Journal and the National Geographic, for heaven’s sakes… Anyone with a brain noticed changes immediately occurring after each change in ownership….

But until now the AP has always stood on its credibility.  It allegedly is owned by the sources it reports to and gathers information from. They never say anything speculative. They never say anything purposefully untrue. They never say anything to influence results… When they call a race on election day, they are the ones the rest of us use to confirm the same suspicions we gathered from viewing all the same evidence.

If fact, with the modern age, and…
