Last night in the final hours of election coverage, viewers of Fox News reported that the news network stopped airing and immediately went to a sign saying “TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES – PLEASE STAND BY”.
“It was strange!” said one viewer. “Everybody was praising Romney’s numbers – Sean Hannity reporting a prediction that Romney would get 500 votes while Obama would get -0, then suddenly Fox News went off the air!”
A representative for Fox News president Roger Ailes said that “he appreciates the patience demonstrated by viewers, and vowed that once results of the election were tabulated, the network would continue its fair and balanced programming”.
In related news, in his concession speech, with his wife Ann by his side apparently twisting Mitt’s arm, Romney praised President Obama’s handling of education, the economy, foreign policy, and anything else that he had previously rallied against Obama for.
