CNN Use Fallout 4 Hacking Terminal for Russian Hacking Story

Fallout 4

During a report on Russian hacking of the US presidential election, US news channel CNN used footage from open-world apocalyptic game Fallout 4.


One user on Reddit noticed that the video had used a side-angled shot of the computer terminals used in the game which displays a random string of text, where the user needs to guess the password from a selection of words. This is not the first time news networks have used images from video games as Metal Gear Solid has been used in the past, as well as  Medal of Honor and Destiny.

Bethesda also got word of the little amusing screengrab and played a little on it via a tweet.
