CNN Analyst: Social Media Companies Could Be Prosecuted as Traitors For Running RUSSIAN Ads

Then by all means, lock 'em up.

A CNN national security analyst suggested on Monday that social media companies are "treasonous" for allowing Russian trolls to use their websites to disseminate disinformation.

"In asymmetric warfare, words and disinformation are critical media firms are aiding and abetting our enemies, providing them a firing platform," wrote Mark Hertling, a retired lieutenant general who now works as a national security analyst for CNN.

"hat could be called treasonous," he added.

The tweet, below:

Oh, and if this logic applies to social media companies, would it not also apply to "news" companies (which are really just television social media companies now) who pushed this RUSSIAN propaganda on unsuspecting Americans?

You know who really pushed the RUSSIAN-organized anti-Trump rallies, right?

That's right -- MSNBC and CNN.

"Treasonous," is the word I'd use.

Also "cucky."
