AP Misfires

Earlier today, the AP pushed a story to it's affiliates with the headline "Bush wins election, Republicans keep House/Senate." The story appeared briefly on the WBAY-TV website before it was taken down.

The lede: "President Bush has won re-election as president by a 47 percent to 43 percent margin in the popular vote... Bush has won 324 electoral votes in 33 states. He is leading in 4 states for a total of 43 more electoral votes".

Update: StopDemocrats.com has a screenshot of the story.

Update II: WBAY-TV issues a correction: Bush did not win the election.
