CNN was interviewing Cpl. Jesse Thorsen who had just voted for Ron Paul. Thorsen said that most of his ten years served in the U.S. military had been served during wartime and now he’s ready for some peace.
(UPDATE: Cpl. Thorsen finally got a chance to speak his mind)
CNN’s Dana Bash then suggests that some call Ron Paul “dangerous.”
Thorsen replies that it would be just as “dangerous” to pick another war with Iran and that Israel was more then capable of handling them.
Then, the feed abruptly cuts out and CNN “loses the transmission,” as Wolf Blitzer puts it.
How convenient. They never did try to reestablish the connection.
Making the incident even more suspicious, CNN’s Anderson Cooper later joked with the panel that the conspiracy theorists were probably going to go crazy over the technical glitch.
What do you think? Was this a technical problem or is the mainstream media at it again?
