John Deeth Blog: Media Gets Iowa Wrong -- Again

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

The actual count of Iowa's elected Democratic national delegates is
Obama zero, Clinton zero, Edwards zero. Iowa won't elect any national
convention delegates for six weeks. But you wouldn't know it from the
national press coverage of Saturday's county conventions. Most reports
at least implied that the national convention delegates have already
been chosen, and that Edwards national delegates were switching their
support to Obama. Here's what actually happened Saturday. The county
convention delegates elected on caucus night met and elected delegates
to the congressional district and state conventions (the same pool of
people go to both). Most of the national delegates are elected at the
April 26 congressional district conventions; the rest are elected at
the state convention June 14.
