MSNBC "Mistakenly" Broadcasts Florida Governor Vote Total / Gillum Victory, 24 Hours Prior

U.S. corporate mass media shenanigans matrix glitch #1984:

An embarrassed 'All In' host Chris Hayes told viewers about a "quick clarification" (after the graphic appeared on MSNBC's broadcast screens), "Just want to say, earlier this hour, uh, 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 yet 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."

Yeah. Hayes was "pretty confused" to see it up there. Uh huh.

It's the kind of goof that the folks who scream about "fake news" likely will scream about. MSNBC this evening briefly put a graphic onscreen that showed "vote counts" for the Florida gubernatorial race you know, the one being held tomorrow.
