Dick Cheney X vid capture taken from Drudge Report

During a recent live broadcast of the Vice President speaking of criticism of the war in Iraq on CNN there was a persistent X that kept popping up on the screen right over the VP’s face. What does this represent? Is it disrespect of the Vice-POTUS? It’s claimed to be an honest bug in the switcher machine. Sean Hannity (in today’s radio broadcast) speculates that it was mischief by an individual technician. Rush today suggested that Fox News take a camera into their own control rooms and demonstrate how easy to operate such machinery to turn the “X” on or off.

The articles in question are Drudge Reports. I’ll switch the links to the Drudge Report Archives as apropriate.
