The networks have already called New Hampshire for McCain. FNC called it at 8:11pm. CNN called it at 8:12 pm. What time did MSNBC call it? At least the Obama/Clinton race is too close to call otherwise the viewers won’t have a lot of reason to stay glued to their sets.
Update: TVNewser’s times - FNC- 8:11:20; MSNBC- 8:11:50; CNN- 8:12:30.
Update 2: Another set of times: FNC- 8:10:52, MSNBC- 20:11:32, CNN- 20:12:22
FNC’s Brit Hume said,“We believe based on a combination of exit polling and the raw data that we have that Jon McCain has indeed won the New Hampshire Primary making him at least on comeback kid tonight for sure.”
This was quickly followed by a report from Carl Cameron from the McCain HQ saying, “You’re going to hear a roar in a second because the “McCainiacs” are absolutely thrilled.”
