News Outlets Distort Delegate Counts

An insightful article for the New York Sun written by Josh Gerstein (1/22/08) reveals discrepancies in the Delegate counts being reported as the primaries and caucuses occur.

For instance, "on the Republican side, CNN's tally has Mitt Romney with 72 Delegates, the Associated Press has that number at 59, and so far CBS has counted just 35 Delegates for the former Massachusetts governor. Governor Huckabee has racked up 40 Delegates according to the AP, 29 Delegates per CNN, and only 7 in the view of CBS."
