"X"Mas comes early for CNN

CNN was caught doing something that may appear biased. The old guard of cable news company flashed an "X" over the face of Vice-President Dick Cheney during a live news conference. The X only lasted 1/15th of a second and was barley noticible. The screenshot was taken after the tape was slowed down.

As Drudge puts it.

At 11:04:45 AM ET Monday CNN was airing Vice President Dick Cheney's speech live from the American Enterprise Institute in Washington -- when a large black 'X' repeatedly flashed over the vice president's face!

The 'X' over Cheney's face appeared each time less than a second, creating an odd subliminal effect.

As this DRUDGE REPORT screen capture reveals, while one 'X' flashed over Cheney's face CNN ran a headline at the bottom of its screen: "CHENEY: I DO NOT BELIEVE IT IS WRONG TO CRITICIZE."

One top White House source expressed concern about what was aired over CNN.

"Is someone in Atlanta trying to tell us something?"

Later in an explanation that CNN released they blamed the "glitch" on a "technical problem". If by technical problem you mean blatent Bush hating venom, then yes, I believe them.
