Sometimes there’s something to be said for never surrendering and standing your ground… but I think in the case of CNN, they need to leave this “Trump stuff” alone for a while and focus on other things going on around the country and world. They’ve already been blown out of the water with FACTS multiple times and they seem to continue to dig that hole they’re in.
Leave it to CNN to threaten a simple internet user, troll if you will, with DOSSING should he continue his exploits…
As written for The Daily Wire by Ben Shapiro:
On Sunday, CNN dropped a report on the tweet. The report didn’t focus on why the president would tweet such a thing; it didn’t focus on why the president would be trolling Reddit for Twitter material; it didn’t even focus on why the Trump White House and Trump campaign made unsubtle overtures to the underbelly of the internet.
No, CNN decided to focus on the original s***poster who put up the Reddit meme Trump hijacked for his Twitter. CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski put out a piece tracking down the Redditor who put it up; Kaczynski reported that the guy’s feed was full of anti-Semitic and racist imagery, but added that the man had apologized profusely online, said that he never wanted Trump to put up the meme, and stated that the meme wasn’t meant to encourage violence. Then CNN dropped this incredible two paragraphs:
CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed 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.
That’s essentially blackmail. That’s CNN stating that it will out the guy if he dares to defy their political perspective or offends them sufficiently.
