Which Channel Had the Best Election Coverage?

jonstewart2_620_110712.jpgWhether you spent your Tuesday night in the company of Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer, Rachel Maddow, Wolf Blitzer, Karl Rove, or Stephen Colbert, you ended up with one very clear result: President Barack Obama has been reelected to lead our nation through 2016.

But just because these anchors and their respective outlets all came together with the same conclusion, that doesn’t mean they got there the exact same way. Each outlet that covered the election — be it a formidable news station, a major television network, or that channel that airs Tosh.0 — had its own spin, its own flare, its own approach to the most important tradition in American society.

Chime in below on the poll: which outlet had your favorite coverage of Election Night 2012?
