CNN to Display Election Results on The Empire State Building

CNN is nothing if not a beacon of journalism, so of course it is projecting election results onto the Empire State Building tonight.

“As each state is projected by CNN and electoral votes are allocated to the candidates, a vertical LED-illuminated ‘meter’ located atop the spire of the building will display CNN’s running tally of the race to 270,” explains CNN. When the network is ready to call the election, the top will go all blue or red (hahaha! yeah right).

This plan sounds about as accurate and professional as most of CNN’s coverage. Can’t wait to not watch it!
