CNN New Year’s Eve Countdown Fail

If you watched CNN on December 31 in the Pacific Coast you may have noticed something rather odd.

Look at this screenshot carefully. It says that right now it is 11:16 PM PT, but the countdown only has 39 minutes left. So that means that the countdown will end at 11:55 instead of 12:00. How could one of the biggest news broadcasters mess something up so simple?

It’s also a little disappointing that CNN just replayed the Ball Drop in NYC that happened three hours before.

At least it wasn’t as bad as this CNN mistake. Notice where Hong Kong is.

But I really wonder who was sitting in that control room not noticing a thing.
