(WASHINGTON, DC, November 1, 2004) - Media Matters for America (MMFA) today announced a comprehensive election night monitoring project. Posting in real time, MMFA will note when winners are called, state by state, in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The project will monitor three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC); three cable outlets (CNN, MSNBC, and FOX); and public television (PBS). The monitoring chart, which can be accessed at www.mediamatters.org/election, will list all 50 states plus D.C. and the corresponding time at which each news outlet calls the results.
We intend to maintain the project throughout the evening, until all outlets have projected a winner.
