CNN MARKS CHENEY: NETWORK FLASHES ‘X’ OVER VP’S FACE DURING LIVE SPEECH

**Exclusive**

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.”

Can’t CNN at least pretend to disguise their hatred? I mean…. even just a little?

One side note to the story: whoever caught the “X” screenshot during the Vice President’s appearance missed a couple of other subliminable messages that CNN used during the broadcast.

GLITCH:

Junkyard Blog and Michelle Malkin are both convinced it was just a glitch. Maybe it was, but any fun at CNN’s expense is still worth poking. False but accurate, you know. Thanks either way, CNN!
