Was it a case of MSNBC being a little too eager to proclaim a Democrat candidate the election winner? Or was the network propagating “fake news?” Maybe they’re just plain incompetent?

MSNBC made a major blunder when they accidentally aired the results of Florida’s gubernatorial race -horror of horrors- on the night before the election. Yes, they passed it off as election result, not a prediction.

Perhaps it was just a case of a test misfire, consistent with the network’s “misfiring” notoriety of late. But some “dirty minds” may not be able to help but suspect if there’s a more sinister agenda behind that like, say, voters’ mind-conditioning perhaps? That is because as consistent with their alleged “bias”, their test ‘misfire’ had a Democrat candidate winning, of course.

MSNBC put Democrat candidate, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum as the “winner” with “99 percent of the votes tallied.” The network presented their imagined scenario of Gillum securing 49.4% of the vote over his rival, Republican RonDeSanti’s 48.8%.

“All In” host Chris Hayes realized their error and looking embarrassed, offered their audience a “quick clarification.”

A humiliated Hayes was forced to state: “Just want to say, earlier this hour, we showed a graphic of the Florida gubernatorial race. May have caught your eye because our system had inadvertently populated some test numbers. Obviously, we do not have any vote totals here, the night before the election. That was a misfire. Don’t worry. I was pretty confused when I saw it up there, to see it myself.”

Social media users were, of course, quick to react on the matter, many taking MSNBC to task for the epic fail, others just making light of the broadcast booboo, while some accusing MSNBC of spreading “fake news.”

It doesn’t really matter if polls for Florida’s gubernatorial race have been mostly trending in Gillum’s direction. Such does not absolve MSNBC’s gaffe of airing a supposed result the night before the actual election takes place.

Unless they want to transition from presenting the news to playing fake Nostradamus and giving predictions they see from their crystal ball, they should really get their act together.

They were obviously already loading their fake guns, to fire fake news bullets. This, to me, is nothing more than them blowing their cover and showing Demoncraps intent on trying to rig the elections, by having dims vote early, only to return today and vote again.

I’ll live vicariously through Florida, low energy Bill Scheutte(R) in Michigan, relied entirely on Trump to carry his campaign, and lost to Whitmer(D)(Granholm Jr)
