Innocent mistake by an intern, or is CNN trying to insinuate something here? Approximately 3 to 4 times, for only about a 15th of a second each, a large black ‘X’ appeared over the face of the Vice President of the United States. To the naked eye, the flashes were hardly noticeable, but when viewed on video playback and slowed down, the black ‘X’ is clearly viewable.
10:00 PM EST Update – CNN claims that the ‘X’ flash was made by a control room engineer, who happened to be operating an ‘effects’ board when a button was pushed by mistake. No word on how an effects button can be pushed “by mistake” multiple times.
