See The Refs Get Worked In Real Time

On Friday, we reported briefly on a story from KDVR FOX 31 in which a leading local Republican talking head appeared to agree with his Democratic counterpart on the following conclusion about the Colorado gubernatorial race:

It’s not just the consensus between FOX 31’s political analysts Michael Fields (R) and Andy Boian (D), of course–every legitimate poll of the governor’s race over the last few months has tracked Heidi Ganahl’s slide into the double-digit abyss, a consistent range between 15-20% down. But like we said Friday, it may be a little soon to let Ganahl’s most diehard defenders in on this consensus.

And it looks like we were right:

Because after somebody complained, the title of this story was changed to no longer unequivocally state that the governor’s race is over. The new title is not inaccurate, it’s just not as, you know, conclusive.

Unfortunately for Team Heidi, although they were apparently successful in “working the refs” to get this undesirable headline changed, nobody thought to change the URL of the story, which still reads:

In a matter of hours, it will be. Until then, obtain solace however you can.

    They worked the refs to change what for them is a devastating headline, to a marginally less devastating headline.

    Embarrassing for FOX 31.

    To be fair, it's not over until tomorrow night.

    To be honest, it's like the Broncos being down by 14 with 2 minutes left in the game. A win is technically possible but we've seen this team play and we all know the disappointment their fans will feel once the competition is over.
