Was that Obi-Wan who just appeared in a CNN segment with Wolf Blitzer? Nope. It was reporter Jessica Yellin, appearing via hologram. That's right, CNN has incorporated a hologram into its coverage tonight.

Jumping the shark was nuking the fridge. Now it's hologramming Jessica Yellin. As in, Dude, that show has nothing left. It has totally hologrammed Jessica Yellin.

PS — I'm probably being too hard on CNN. I mean, they beat NASA and the DOD to this technology. That's something. Right?
