CNN Caves

More insight at what really happened in the control room at CNN during Vice President Cheney's speech.

FROM THE DRUDGE REPORT:

CNN OPERATOR FIRED AFTER SUGGESTING 'X' OVER CHENEY WAS 'FREE SPEECH'

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."

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."

Laurie Goldberg, Senior Vice President for Public Relations with CNN, said in a release:

"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. "

{CNN caves to pressure to do the right thing. As we are well aware CNN is fairly bias in its reporting. Not only is the reporting bias but behind the scenes as well it now appears. As I have previousely blogged the infamouse X was more then likely not a accident. With the firewing of the switchboard operator it comes even more apparent that it was purposely placed over the Vice President in a very unproffesional move by unproffesionals at CNN. I say hooray for fireing the operator!!!!!!!!!!!}
