Update to the "X" kerfuffle
Well, well, well. It seems that the "X" over Cheney's face during his speech broadcast on CNN possibly WASN'T a mistake after all? (via Drudge, of course)
A CNN switchboard operator was fired over the holiday -- after the operator claimed the 'X' placed over Vice President's Dick Cheney's face 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."
We? As in CNN or as in this particular operator and the gremlin in his/her pocket? The operator goes on to say how the X was an expression of free speech and if the caller didn't like it to not watch.
Seems to me CNN should be concerned about KEEPING their three viewers, don't you?
Goodness gracious. If it's more detail you want, more detail you shall get. There's a LOT there for any of you that are still interested. (including audio recordings of the conversations between the operator and the callers)
Check out the press release, too...very interesting, yes?
Millions from across the country telephoned CNN to alert the network about an accidental "X" over the Vice President's face, only to be told that the "X" was intentional against the present administration. CNN callers flooded the Internet and online communities with calls to boycott the network."Only to be told that the 'X' was intentional"??
