X Marks the Spot!


This is just too damned funny!

THIRDWAVEDAVE tipped me off about a "gaffe" at CNN earlier today, where they stuck a giant black "X" over Vice President Cheney while he was making a live speech!

Real Teen at Stop the ACLU is reporting that The Drudge Report is currently running with this story as its header. No one can seem to make out the tiny black words superimposed over parts of the picture.

Some people are {GASP!} suggesting that it may not have been an accident!

I mean, come on, folks! It's not like the media have done something like this before...

Or have they?



UPDATE: Ian at The Political Teen has video, slowed down to make the repeatedly appearing (for 1/15th of a second at a time) "X" easily visible.

I'm not the only one remembering past media bias silliness....

Mary Katherine Ham at Hugh Hewitt recalled THIS little gem (also courtesy of CNN).

Curt at Flopping Aces recalled Reuters' zoomed-in and "enhanced" potty break note... and, of course, this lovely USA Today photo, which we had a whole lot of fun with a few weeks ago...

Don't even get me started on the TANG Documents!

Again, I must shrug and ask: What media bias???


UPDATE #2 (11/22)

The Man at GOP and the City has a unique take on this whole affair.


Thanks for the links!
