Election: CNN's ad in the New York Times

November 4, 2008 |  3:30 pm

The network that is bringing us holograms and magic maps took out a full-page ad in today's New York Times to give viewers insight into the CNN state of mind on this historic day. It reads:

There is a moment, a simple moment, before history gets recorded.
Before it goes in the books.
Before it appears as a question on a game show.
Or on a midterm exam.
A moment right before the headline is written.
There is a moment when history lives in the present.
When we can watch it unfold in real time, right before our eyes.
And we can all assume our place in it.
Some people live for history.
We live for the moment just before.

-- Maria Elena Fernandez
