Media refused to give Bush the win

Despite 100 percent of the vote being counted in Ohio, New Mexico, Iowa, and Nevada and Bush having substantial leads in all those states, none of the networks were willing to give Bush over the 269 votes needed to win. NBC and Fox gave Bush Ohio but none of the other three states and thus 269 Electoral Votes. CNN and ABC gave Bush Nevada, but not New Mexico, Iowa nor Ohio. The media just didn't want to claim that Bush had won.
