Its just B-roll, but still…

Cable News Channel CNN recently aired video of a Fallout 4 hacking minigame as B-roll footage in a report on the “fallout” from Russian hacking during the 2016 Presidential Election.

The gaffe seems to have been spotted first on Reddit by user Poofylicious and has subsequently been picked up by PC Gamer and Kotaku among other sites. The video in question can be found here.

So apparently the only way to make hacking visually interesting in 2017 is to show footage from a post apocalyptic universe where technology stopped progressing in the 1950s?
