Did Fox Sabotage Rep. Bachmann's Response to SOTU?

According to Breitbart TV, its was Fox, not CNN that set up the poor Camera angle for Rep. Bachmann's speech after the President's State of the Union:

"Sources who were in the room at the time of broadcast 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. Developing...

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."

To emphasise their point Breitbart TV presented the Tea Party express feed as an example of what you should have seen that night:

Who cares about the camera angle? It's minutia, as they say, don't sweat the small stuff. What people should be talking about is the SUBSTANCE of what she was saying. The lib pundits and Statists will always be attacking Conservative people,because they are wrong on the issues.They attack the messenger, not the message.
