Fox can't wish it away

Moments ago, FoxNews, in airing a report about the upcoming presidential election, had a headline at the bottom of the screen that read "Candidates neck and neck as election approaches."

Neck and neck? Seriously?

Gallup has Barack Obama up by 11 points. So does the the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll.
CBS News gives Obama a 13-point lead.
Marist has Obama ahead by 7.

And in the all-important Electoral College tally, with 270 needed for victory, has Obama getting at least 311 and Yahoo has Obama at 333.

We all know Fox wants John McCain to win, but lying about the current state of the race won't change it.
