id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.

Enlarge ImageCNN showing porn? Hardly.

CNN This was the night when "Parts Unknown" may have become "Parts You'll Be Familiar With."

At least that's what screenshots posted by Twitterer @Solikearose suggest.

She says she was settling down to watch Anthony Bourdain's CNN show at around 10 p.m. Eastern Time on Thanksgiving when she was confronted with scenes of a carnal nature.

It appeared that CNN was broadcasting 30 minutes of pornography instead.

The feed to her Boston area is provided by cable company RCN. Some confusion reigns about what may or may not have happened.

Variety quoted a CNN statement that read: "The RCN cable operator in Boston aired inappropriate content for 30 minutes on CNN last night. CNN has asked for an explanation." Other news outlets quoted the same statement.

However, RCN told Variety that it is "in the process of researching this incident but see no evidence our CNN network feed was compromised last evening in Boston."

And when I contacted CNN, its spokeswoman Barbara Levin told me: "Despite media reports to the contrary, RCN assures us that there was no interruption of CNN's programming in the Boston area last night."

Ah.

@Solikearose says she also contacted RCN and CNN. RCN replied on Friday that it had no other reports of the phenomenon that she was describing. It's odd, indeed, that no one else has come forward to say they saw the impromptu show too.

The screenshots posted to Twitter do offer quite edifying viewing for those who appreciate this sort of evening nourishment, but can only one person have seen it? Or might someone been having amusement here?

@Solikearose has now made her account private, explaining on Twitter that she's been getting hate mail since she created the #bourdainporn hashtag to honor the event. She also didn't respond to a request for comment.

This wouldn't be the first time that porn has somehow been emitted instead of what a viewer might expect. From large screens at Best Buy to Ontario TV stations, porn manages to be on display.

The latest incident, indeed, occurred on an electronic billboard in Indonesia.

One can't help imagining that, in at least one or two of such cases, there's a man-child behind the incident, sniggering away into his KFC.

But who or what might be behind this kerfuffle? Someone experimenting with fake news, perhaps?
