CNN Alleges Equipment Tampered With During Trump Telecast

CNN and MSNBC experienced surprise interruptions during their attempts to broadcast New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s endorsement of Donald Trump’s bid to be president of the United States.

During a Friday telecast of the event, held in Fort Worth, Texas, both cable-news networks appeared to suffer from technical issues. Fox News Channel’s broadcast aired without incident.

A spokesperson for CNN says the network’s equipment was tampered with. A person familiar with the situation said MSNBC experienced a loss of signal while transmitting the event.

Viewers of both networks saw blurs momentarily until the outlets resorted to the use of still photos.
