We know that someone is behind the scenes moving the holograms and the screens. When you wave your hands around, trying to create the illusion that you’re somehow affecting the visual illusions, you undermine your image as a serious person. We know you’re not manipulating some kind of magic hologram theremin of news. It’s not that it’s wrong for CNN to want to make the news more visually interesting. But can they find a way to do that without making their pundits look even stupider?

By the way, Anderson Cooper is going to probably die with a look on his face that says, “I can’t believe I have to spend my time with such idiots.” After all, you make that face long enough, and it freezes that way. Not that I can blame him. He is smarter than all these idiots.
