Layers Of Fact Checking. It's The Paper Of Record Yo! | Main | #CNNBlackmail Fallout: Wikileaks and Even Vox Editors Call CNN's Blackmail "Extremely Unethical"
July 05, 2017

CNN Threatens to Dox Reddit User Who Made Trump Wrestling Gif; #CNNBlackmail Trends on Twitter; CNN Denies "Blackmail"

Amazing.



In Kaczynski's story, he outright threatens to out the Reddit user if he doesn't comply:
CNN is not publishing "HanA**holeSolo's" name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same. CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.

Many quickly observed that this threat amounted to ideological blackmail.

Among those, Jon Gabriel, who writes that Trump has driven CNN stark raving mad.

That's right: a Senior Editor for CNN is blackmailing an American citizen for daring to criticize them....

Kaczynski's insanity was just the latest in CNN's string of horrible decisions related to Trump. Last week, CNN accepted the resignations of three star journalists over their retracted story falsely connecting a Trump associate to a Russian bank. Before that, CNN's parent company helped fund a performance of Julius Caesar, in which a Trump stand-in is assassinated. In the past month, the network retracted another anti-Trump story proved false by James Comey's testimony, fired Kathy Griffin for posing with an effigy of Trump's decapitated head, and censured host Reza Aslan for wishing rape on a Republican congressman. Not to mention the Project Veritas videos catching CNN employees mocking Americans and admitting that the endless Russia allegations are a big nothing-burger.

For all the criticism of Trump's self-defeating tweets, his steady attacks on CNN have provoked the network to reveal how awful they truly are. Perhaps the President can Tweet a new video in which CNN body-slams itself.

He also notes that Kaczinksy led the mob against Justine Sacco.

I should also point out that sad sack fat clown Brian Stelter was one of the people asking on Twitter "Does anyone know who made this gif?!" Whether or not he got people to contact him and was part of the Andrew Kaczinsky "reporting," I don't know.
