Last night Wolf Blitzer told CNN's viewers that they were on the brink of witnessing something NEVER BEFORE SEEN on television.
What would it be?
A seal riding a lion?
A radical right republican gay-marrying her best friend?
McCain winning the election?
No. Those would have been cool. (Well, except for that last one.) Instead, we got a CNN correspondent "beamed in" to the CNN studio (ala Star Wars). Hey Wolf, I'll tell you why nobody has ever done it before. Because it's stupid. You're speaking to empty air and Jessica looks like some animatronic pancake creature.
Judge for yourself. This isn't radical technology. This is a cheap (well, probably way overpriced) trick used to engage a younger generation. What younger generation? I don't quite know. The younger 80's generation? Because that's the level of special effects that we are dealing with here. Today's youth are used to Cloverfield. They've been watching Garfield a Tale of Two Kitties.
Jesus, CNN... what were you thinking?
