Can the Media Make a Promise?

On NPR: “If Obama wins both states, he will make it all but impossible for Clinton to catch-up in pledged delegates.”  Uh-huh.  Right, sure.  Like that isn’t already the case.  But please, please promise that if it does happen (even though I highly doubt it will), you’ll actually cover it as such?  Please?!

Anyway, prediction: Obama wins North Carolina by 4 points, Clinton wins Indiana by 4 points, the media continues to say Obama’s dead even though Clinton can’t win.

UPDATE May 6, 1:38 PM:
Actually, I didn’t really figure in Indiana undecided voters in my prediction for today’s primaries.  If they’re still undecided at this point, they’re likely to go with the safety vote, that being Clinton.  As such, updated prediction: Obama wins North Carolina by 4 points, Clinton wins Indiana by 6 points, the media continues to say Obama’s dead even though Clinton can’t win.

UPDATE May 6, 1:46 PM:
Oy, and I forgot to figure in the possible Republican-caused “chaos“…

Cheers,
Charlie
