In a story speculating on the possibility that Obama would win the popular vote and lose the electoral college, the Associated Press said the following about the 2000 election:
The outcome wasn't clear until a 36-day recount awarded Florida, then worth 25 electoral votes, to Bush by just a 537-vote margin.
Of course, that is false. Though the outcome wasn't clear until 36 days later, the recount itself was halted by the Supreme Court of the United States. Most if not all of you know that. Strange that AP doesn't.
It's not just misleading to say that the recount awarded anything. It's also biased because it adds legitimacy to the Bush "victory" that it does not deserve.

However, remember that the AP may realize its mistake (perhaps by way of this diary) and change the wording so that it no longer matches what's in the quote block above. That would be a good thing.
