Fox News debuts bizarre, giant tablets in its outrageous new newsroom

LINK
quote:

Fox News has just unveiled a breathtakingly ridiculous newsroom, complete with novelty-sized Windows-based touchscreens, a Twitter wall, and a wannabe Minority Report-style display, which it hopes will connect it with generations of viewers who use smartphones and apps.

In a video that could be mistaken for a College Humor or Saturday Night Live parody, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith walks viewers through the network's new setup, which includes workstations with 55-inch touchscreen monitors. In the video, journalists swipe through pages and apps, presumably collecting information for live reporting. "We call these BATs," Smith notes. "Big area touchscreens."

Let me help you out a bit.



And yeah, that's not even a remotely convenient way to look up information.

" It's a remote control that allows Smith to shuffle through an image carousel with no apparent journalistic purpose. "For instance, I can take this lady who's been evacuating from a hurricane zone and move it over here," Smith says.

All the news channels are like that. Its analogous to the arms race in weight training facilities at college campuses. Just build the most ridiculous shite to get viewers to go "Whoa, I'll watch this for a minute."
