1. The media agreed too wait until the west coast polls closed.


After they called the 1980 election for Reagan, Carter conceded early, and this discouraged turnout in the western states. The media agreed to hold their projections until voting was complete in the west. Not sure when they dropped that policy. Probably about a week later.
