From the Desk of an 11-Year-Old Graphics Intern

CNN tweeted this graphic a couple of days ago:

I didn't even notice what it said because I was so distracted by the incredible bad drawings. Hillary is barely recognizable in a kind of generic, traced-from-from-a-photo way. Rand could be any white guy in a collar. Really. I would have had no idea who that was supposed to be if his name wasn't hiding out under his 43%.

Has CNN turned over its graphics department to middle-schoolers who've never had an art class because they were too busy learning to write a five-paragraph essay?

Maybe they can hire Eddie Thomas away from the Star Tribune. It's hard to admit, but it would be an improvement.
