"Viewer Elizabeth Evans said she and her daughter, Abigael, were listening to NPR on a trip to the grocery store when [Abigael] started tearing up," reported Denver's 9News, in Colorado.

In response, NPR issued an apology on their breaking news blog on Wednesday. "On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her. We must confess, the campaign's gone on long enough for us, too. Let's just keep telling ourselves: 'Only a few more days, only a few more days, only a few more days'."
