CNN's latest election night gimmick will be using New York landmark Empire State Building in their election coverage.
This is what CNN had to say in their press release:
As the Senate results are projected and allocated to candidates, a vertical LED illuminated “meter” located atop the spire of the building will ascend in either red or blue—reflective of the party. Once an illuminated color—red or blue—reaches the top of the spire, that party will take control of the Senate.
Mediaite points out that it’s kind of like counting down to the New Year, only with politics.
If the LED stops halfway and flashes green up it means they found the missing plane.
