Democrat Rep. beats "Watson" supercomputer ... or does he?

Hey, he's a Democrat, so let's do this "right!" Take the Daily Mail, for instance. Salon.com. ABC News. Time magazine.

But hidden at the very bottom of this story we read this:

IBM spokeswoman Lia Davis said the computer that went up against Holt was not the exact one that competed on television, but a simulation.

Oh, OK. So Rep. Holt really didn't beat "Watson," did he? Maybe next time Holt can "fly" an F-18 ... in a flight simulator.
