CNN’s Election Matwitch

CNN prematurely took the wraps off Election Matrix and so far the results are mixed to me. I haven’t seen a lot of it in action but there’s one thing I am seeing which annoys the hell out of me. The graphics are twitching up and down bad. Really bad. So bad, I’m really surprised they went ahead with the Matrix in that state. It’s the kind of thing CNN doesn’t need; people like me (justifiably) throwing darts ahead of its election coverage. It poisons the well and echoes some of CNN’s less than impressive past technological election related gambles (fake holograms, pie chart troubles, and another instance of VR twitching).

With so much riding on this for the network, CNN needs to stop that twitch now. Before election night.
