Yawn.

On election night in 2000, as head of NBC's parent company, Welch pressured the news division to call Florida for Bush, even when the results were obviously way too close.

Once a partisan hack, always a partisan hack.

I gotta tell ya,

I read the last line and laughed my ass off. But remain curious having no reflection, what did you do with all your mirrors?

Also , I was curious about if this were true, not that making a call after an election's voting is closed means anything anyway.

I only found this on Dem whack job sites, but only looked at the first 10 or os. Do you have any remotely credible links, I would be interested in reading about it, but prefer a site that does not cater to the insane.
