60 Seconds in the Life of the Election Center

With less than a month until the election, the campaigns are bound to get pretty crazy. So I think we should take a minute to relax, inhale slowly, and bask in the glow of the CNN Election Center monitors in a quiet moment with no one else around.


Years of internet training have taught me to expect a shock zombie in the closing frames of movies like this, so much so that 60 seconds of nothing much noticeably raises my heart rate. There must be a name for this condition.

You know that now someone will have to take this clip and lay their own chroma key production on top, right? Perhaps of that thing Andrew mentions, or a webcrawler.

That’s the longest I’ve been able to watch the news for 60 seconds without hearing the word ‘maverick’ for ages.

More stars! More stripes! I can still see some whitespace on the large screen on the left!

(Love this series, by the way. I always look forward to new additions.)

Dude, how did you get this video?

David is actually Anderson Cooper (who is actually ex-CIA — shhhh)
