Watching the results come on Super Tuesday has become an increasingly frustrated exercise. Why must the media try to call results and provide wrong information all in the need of speed? Do we value fast information over the correct kind? So far Missouri has been called for Clinton, that call has been revoked, called again for Clinton, and now is back up in the air. Who knows who will win it? And who really cares? Chances are in what really matters, namely the delegates, Clinton and Obama will come out equal. And speaking of delegates - how on earth all the networks calling them already? Delegate representation depends on total percentage in the state AND what districts those percentages come from. Campaigns will spin tonights results. They should. It's their perogative and their job. The media, on the other hand, should not.
