Yahoo and AP Go Nuts Over Projected Clinton Win

Yahoo is bullshitting heavily on the PA election:

From the actual article (emphasis mine):

The former first lady was winning 53 percent of the vote to 47 percent for her rival with 9 percent of the vote counted, and she hoped for significant inroads into Obama’s overall lead in the competition for delegates to the Democratic National Convention.

I’ve completely had it with news outlets claiming a 6 percent win projected with 9 percent of the vote is somehow “crucial” or “decisive”.  This is irresponsible.
