Major Media Cooperate in Obama Deceit

At roughly 6:45 ET tonight, PBS's evening news hour reported that Senator Barack Obama went over the "magic number" (2118) of delegates needed to claim the Democratic presidential nomination. He went over with superdelegates, and a new total of 2123.
Minutes later Fox News reported the same story, and NPR affiliates were not far behind. AP had actually broken the story PBS reported.
However, the evening news casts on the air at the time on all three major networks -- ABC, NBC, and CBS -- were mysteriously silent. MSNBC and CNN continued for the next 45 minutes to report Obama as lacking 10 delegates.
Why? Obama had planned a stagecraft to occur after the polls closed at 8PM ET in South Dakota, and the news agencies were cooperating with the fiction that elected delegates and not superdelegates had put him over the magic number.
Sound familiar? Think of all the collusion between the media and Bush before and during the invasion of Iraq. Mission accomplished, indeed.
