So, what was really up with the televised feed of Rep. Bachmann’s State of the Union response?
Our sources tell us that CNN had originally agreed to use the live feed set up by Tea Party Express, which had a teleprompter running on the lens in which Rep. Bachmann was delivering her speech. But, when Rep. Bachmann left the camera set-up and sat in the House chamber to hear Pres. Obama’s speech, CNN set up a camera of their own, just off to the side of the main, tele-prompter/camera. Thus, when CNN provided their network feed it ended up skewed and off-kilter.
Here, we present the direct, Tea Party Express feed as was originally broadcast to on-line viewers (including viewers at Breitbart.tv) the night of the speech.
*UPDATE: Sources now confirm that the pool camera providing the feed for CNN was Fox News. The Fox News pool camera was set up off-kilter from the tele-prompter feed despite the protestations of the Tea Party Express production team.
A media source who was in the room as the Fox News pool camera was being set up says that Fox News declined to have a tele-prompter hooked-up to their pool camera because they were present to report on the news, not to become part of the news.
