"X" marks the spot
This is by far the funniest story of the year. During the live CNN broadcast of Vice President Cheney's speech on Monday, an "X" showed up across the VP's face. Republican pundits were (rightly) outraged and at first CNN blew it off with a dismissive "This was a technolgical malfunction, not an issue of operator error. A portion of the switcher experienced a momentary glitch." Now I am not by nature a cynical person, but please....can we have a lamer excuse? I mean really....the only network MORE hostile to the Bush Administration than CNN is MSNBC and that is a judgement call! The website that broke the story (The Drudge Report) is reporting today that a control room operator "laughed" when the image first appeared and somehow that doesn't shock me at all.
The blatent hatred of the anti-Bush crowd has reached it's most frantic. The fun thing is, we have another 3 years of this to go. My only worry is that they (they hysterical left fringe) peaks too soon. If they do peak before the '08 election things could be boring for those who make a living at political analysis.
That the legacy media is biased against President Bush is no surprise. What is surprising me is how they are not even trying to hide it. I have no doubt that we will see more and more of the anti-Bush hysteria.
