Technical Glitch My A**....

For all those that believed the "technical glitch" story that CNN tried to peddle...

I mean, plah-lease, the "glitch" just happened to be an X over the face of the #2 most hated man of the left (Rove being #1).

Over the weekend a techie was fired because he admitted it was "free speech":

"We did it just to make a point. Tell them to stop lying, Bush and Cheney," the CNN operator said to a caller. "Bring our soldiers home."

The caller initially phoned the network to complain about the all-news channel flashing an "X' over Cheney as he gave an address live from Washington.

"Was it not freedom of speech? Yes or No?" the CNN operator explained.

"If you don't like it, don't watch." (Drudge's Scoop)

CNN's Response:
"A Turner switchboard operator was fired today after we were alerted to a conversation the operator had with a caller in which the operator lost his temper and expressed his personal views -- behavior that was totally inappropriate. His comments did not reflect the views of CNN. We are reaching out to the caller and expressing our deep regret to her and apologizing that she did not get the courtesy entitled to her." source)

Come on people, this is Ted Turner's network we're dealing with here. Stop being so trusting.

Note: Fox has yet to have a scandal in the news, unlike the other networks and the NYT. Hmmmm....
