CNN (and Possibly MSNBC) Equipment Tampered With at Donald Trump Rally

vlcsnap-2016-02-26-14h37m06s220The reason at least some of the cable networks had such blurry footage of Governor Chris Christie‘s endorsement of Donald Trump was because their cables were tampered with.

A CNN source confirmed to Mediaite that their cables had been “tampered with”. According to The Washington Post reporter Paul Fahri, MSNBC also had their cables cut while Fox News was fine.

UPDATE (2:57 PM): An MSNBC source confirmed to Politico that their cables were also tampered with.

Here’s an example of the fuzzy footage networks had to work with.

No one has claimed credit or blamed anyone for the apparent vandalism. Trump often attacks the media during his campaign speeches; he later told fans that he would repeal libel laws to make it easier for people to sue the media.
