CNN uses virtual for ‘Reality Check’

CNN’s Reality Check team, headed on air by correspondent Tom Foreman, has been using the network’s famous virtual environments — a use that’s actually pretty effective.

While the virtual technology has been used for a wide range of applications in the past — ranging from virtual goats to virtual cockpits and maps — it often comes across as gimmicky.

In its Reality Check segments, however, the network places Foreman in a quasi-structural environment that includes franchise branding and a large “video wall” thats used to both toss to the video clips being analyzed as well as displaying textual information and a “stamp” on whether the claim is true or false.
