CNN had a lot of interesting ways to explain data last night.

While MSNBC was playing comic foil and Fox was playing to its base, the serious news network showed off all sorts of graphics and methods of boiling down crazy amounts of data from Twitter, "raw exit poll data" and other places.

The 3D graphics may look crazy, but amid the thousands of touch screens that were visible all night and the huge amount of information the talking heads were using, CNN hit their target of information overload. At least it looked pretty!
