Comments: “A creative way to handle a breaking news event that’s not like the typical stack. It’s outstanding, close to being seamless. It worked really well on mobile. They used the right mechanisms to tell this story, it’s the right amount of information. Editing is a real-key to a high level story. Delivering one map and fact makes it delivered in palatable bite-size chunks. Almost-perfect turnaround for the story they’re trying to tell.”
