Warren: McCain did not violate 'cone of silence'

(CNN) Sometimes you just have to take it on faith.

Pastor Rick Warren said John McCain didnt hear any of the questions in advance at Saturday nights Civil Forum, even if the candidate was a little late arriving to the pre-arranged quiet room or cone of silence.

At the beginning of the forum at California megachurch, Warren told the crowd and TV audience, I'm going to ask identical questions to each of these candidates, so you can compare apples to apples. Now, Senator Obama is going to go first. We flipped a coin, and we have safely placed Senator McCain in a cone of silence.

But at 8 p.m. ET, as Warren said that, McCain was actually not in the building. He was just leaving his hotel, with his motorcade arriving at the church nearly a half hour into the event. A. Larry Ross, a spokesman for Warren, says McCain then went directly into the holding room they dubbed the cone of silence (in reality, a room with no TV or audio).


Warren told CNN Sunday evening, we flat out asked him if he heard any of the questions. The McCain campaign confirmed that McCain did not hear or see any of the broadcast in the motorcade or after he arrived, Ross said.
