MSNBC has Lester Holt in a large glass cage, which it calls a “virtual newsroom,” where he’s reporting on exit poll results, on a computer-generated screen that’s floating in midair. It’s only a short step from this to animated co-anchors. Would anybody notice the difference with a cartoon Jim Cramer?

The network is also calling some states “too close to call” and other states “too early to call.” I missed any explanation of what the distinction is, but it seems to be very important.
