What is their excuse for the X at all? I've never seen this on other speakers before. (So, it's not like it's a glitch that happens all the time.)

CNN cannot handle the truth the Thugsocrats was a DEFEAT AND A SURRENDER in Iraq. The Thugs are stopping at nothing, at any disasterous cost, to bring about a loss for Bush.

It is that simple.

They don't have to give a good reason for it. Their buddies on free tv and in print just won't cover it.

No, not the white text...

If you look, there is something written in black that has been laid across that text, and also across the "live today" graphic.... just like the X, but since it's dark behind that part of the screen you can't see it all.

THe VP is one of the "X-Men?"

His mutant name is "Bigtime", and his mutant ability is the manipulation of the oil markets. He's also good at convincing Storm to send hurricanes to attack places he doesn't like.

Was it a subliminal "X"? Or did it flash for several seconds?

What is CNNs justification for this? They are getting a email for sure. Can't say I'll stop watching them cause I have blocked CNN for the last 5 years on my t.v. but would love to know how they justify this. Also can the FCC get involved in this?AWB

not sure... but it flashed long enough for someone to get a screen cap of it... so I would say it was at least a couple of seconds.

XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX MON NOV 21, 2005 21:25:35 ET XXXXX

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."

One top White House source expressed concern about what was aired over CNN.

"Is someone in Atlanta trying to tell us something?"

A CNN spokesman did not return repeated calls late Monday night.

Developing...

Think again - the screen shot could be of a video recording...

I couldn't decipher it. The image quality is pretty poor. With the actual video, it might be more evident.

I took a quick shot at resampling and enhancing but was unsuccessful - I'll see if I can get a higher res original to start from.
