Who Wins the Giant Nerd Demographic? CNN

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?


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
