CNN does love its technology.
Tonight at 7 p.m. in preparation for the Iowa Caucus, they’re unveiling “several new technologies” to break down the “mystery” of the process.
This can only mean one seriously exciting surprise: HELLO Magic Wall. Tonight John King will transform himself into a human Magic Wall and stick himself with virtual pins. No, what’s really happening is that “John King will utilize new features that will display and decode data straight from Iowa— looking at the candidates ground game to include candidate ad spending, events across the campaign trail, as well as a unique look into Iowa’s caucuses.” The pins sound more fun, right?
The network is also using a new technology to track social media conversation surrounding tonight’s event.
