"It was an accident" my...


Vice President Cheney gave a speech this morning at the American Enterprise Institute, which was covered live by most of the news networks. No biggie, right?

Well, it is if CNN put a giant black X over his face. From Drudge:
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?"

A CNN spokesman did not return repeated calls late Monday night.

Here's the screen capture:

What makes this even more sneaky is that it was done for less than a second each time. Kind of like how they used to put pictures of pop corn and hot dogs on individual frames of the movies at drive ins to get you to buy more snacks. Subliminal messages. Lovely, eh?

What message were they trying to send? Hmmm... I guess we should just consider ourselves lucky that it was some dingbat from DU doing this- it would have been a target.

Update: According to CNN...
"This was a technological malfunction, not an issue of operator error. A portion of the switcher experienced a momentary glitch."
Glitch... accident... my original statement still stands.

Update: The Political Teen has video.
