An Oops or Wishful Thinking?

While everyone is focused on CBS' firing of retired Gen. John Batiste for appearing in a VoteVets ad disparaging President Bush's war policy, another acronymically named channel had a similar moment of what some might call "advocacy".

TVNewser reports that the following graphic appeared for a whole twelve seconds on CNN's international broadcast.

As Gun Toting Liberal put it: "For twelve seconds, the Citizens were reaching for their shoes in order to head out the door to commence dancing in the streets, only to be shattered once they realized it was simply a mistake made by the CNN crew. But again; for twelve short seconds, thousands of households wordwide were thrilled by the “breaking news” on their television screens. Just imagine the high “high” followed by the low “low” there. Shame on CNN for that."
