Update on the X Video

Yesterday, I posted about CNN's broadcast of the VP's speech yesterday. During it, they put an "X" over VP Cheney's face. Well, after a bunch of research and tinkering, bloggers have figured out that it was probably just a glitch. (MM has the details- h/t to Anony for letting me know.) The writing underneath the X says "Transition begins after 5 frames of black," so it was probably just the tag on the front or back end of a video clip.

However, that doesn't take into account that the people in the control room at CNN got a big kick out of it. It almost sounds as if, although none of them did it intentionally, they were secretly wishing they had.

Update on the Update: HDD pointed me toward this site, with the following quote:
Callers were repeatedly told by CNN, "Tell the President and Vice-President Dick Cheney to stop lying." Team Hollywood's conversation with the newsdesk was recorded. When the tape is played back, amongst political statements being made by the network were the words that the "X" was intentional, as an act of free speech by CNN.
Well, now isn't THAT interesting...
