CNN always puts extra effort into its coverage for Election Day, but last night the network eschewed technological wizardry such as holograms and went with a relatively sedate visual: a wall of 24 correspondents reporting from cities and candidate headquarters around the country.
Luckily for us, that still worked perfectly as fodder for the internet parody machine. CollegeHumor's Dan Hopper turned CNN's video board into a character select screen straight out of a Mortal Kombat game, complete with three spaces for unlockable fighters. Our money's on Soledad O'Brien, who's now covering topics such as eSports for HBO's Real Sports.
Wow. CNN really going all-out: pic.twitter.com/Gvr3HaccmH— Dan Hopper (@DanHopp) November 4, 2014
