<p>After heavily promoting on Tuesday the Ohio ballot initiative to legalize marijuana before the polls closed, <em>NBC Nightly News</em> offered an about-face of sorts on Wednesday and refused to acknowledge the fact that measure was soundly defeated.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Hailing it as <strong>&ldquo;high stakes&rdquo;</strong> in the Buckeye State, anchor Lester Holt hyped in a tease on Tuesday&rsquo;s newscast: <strong>&ldquo;Legalized pot on the ballot tonight in the biggest swing state of all. Is it a tipping point for the nation? A big money fight with a famous singer caught in the middle.&rdquo;</strong></p>
