<p>Tuesday&rsquo;s <em>CBS Evening News</em> offered three segments recapping the results of Monday&rsquo;s Iowa caucuses and in covering the Democratic side, touted Hillary Clinton as having<strong> &ldquo;made history&rdquo;</strong> despite the near-tie with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders plus how she&rsquo;s already past 15 percent of her way to the nomination based on the superdelegates she&rsquo;s already amassed.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Anchor Scott Pelley declared right off the top that <strong>&ldquo;Hillary Clinton made history today, though not the way she hoped&rdquo;</strong> despite being <strong>&ldquo;declared the winner of Iowa&#39;s Democratic caucuses by the small margin ever.&rdquo;</strong></p>
