It Wasn't Intentional?

That's not what Real Teen is saying. They've discovered that U.S Newswire discovered the partisan truth about CNN's big X over VP Dick Cheney's head, at 4:30 PM Tuesday Afternoon.

"When the founders of the company, Preska Thomas and Kevin Finn, made contact with the network, to their surprise they were bullied and harassed in the same way by the Headline News desk. Callers were repeatedly told by CNN, "Tell the President and Vice-President Dick Cheney to stop lying." Team Hollywood's conversation with the newsdesk was recorded. When the tape is played back, amongst political statements being made by the network were the words that the "X" was intentional, as an act of free speech by CNN." U.S. Newswire

This is coming from a group of people who are supposed to be "non-partisan reporters" I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Leftists ≠ Free Speech

Other Reactions:
YAHOO! News and Reuters were convinced by CNexplanationation" about the incident, as late as 8:45AM CST today.
CNN avoids the subject altogether
Fox News at least links to the web pages that have coverage
New York Times turns a blind eye to the subject
