Why did MSNBC announce Poll results early?

I thought that wasn’t allowed. I think that just gives life to the claim the media is for Biden!

2. In cases where it is a blowout it is a normal practice.

3. If you're talking about the Michigan results,

The polls in the Michigan LP closed an hour before those in the UP. MSNBC made it clear several times that they were only reporting numbers that were being released by the State.

4. "results early ... wasn't allowed" - uh,weren't announced before the polls closed, so uh... ?!1

In no way "gives life to the claim".

When the statistical mechanisms meet the criteria for announcing, what's not to announce? Besides that all the outlets are announcing at around the same time. Something is wrong in the premise.
