Now this is a truly strange one. Or perhaps not.
Fox is reporting the final results in the New Hampshire primaries. Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders win. If you wondered how that could be when most of the state has not even voted yet, that’s a darn good question.
Check it out here. It appears to actually be Fox and not a spoof site.
I think this came up before with reference to elections in the past on other media and the story was it was a ‘testing placeholder’.
That said, even if that’s what it is, not the best idea to still have it up after voting has started.
Someone finally got around to resetting the numbers.
We’ll have to see how close Fox’s ‘test’ numbers are to reality as the numbers come in.
Fox’s official statement:
In a statement to Mediaite, chief digital officer Jeff Misenti said that, “During routine testing in preparation for the New Hampshire primary a malfunction occurred which briefly showed errant data on our website. This error has been rectified. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.”
