CNN Blackmails Reddit User Over Trump Wrestling Video, Threatens To Expose Identity


CNN Blackmails Reddit User Over Trump Wrestling
Video, Threatens To Expose Identity by Tyler Durden CNN is taking heat for threatening to publish
the identity of a private citizen who posted a video lampooning the network. Redditor ‘HanAssholeSolo’ is credited as the
creator of a clip showing President Trump beating up a man with a CNN logo superimposed
over his face, which the President then tweeted on Sunday morning. #FraudNewsCNN #FNN pic.twitter.com/WYUnHjjUjg
� Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 2, 2017 In response, CNN and it’s MSM brethren caught
the vapors – with pundits accusing the President of inciting violence against journalists. CNN media reporter Brian Stelter tweeted this
screed: CNN statement responding to the president:
“We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his.” pic.twitter.com/Gn1YRA2DRG
� Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) July 2, 2017 While the White House has said the video didn’t
come from Reddit, CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski went on a deep dive, uncovering now-deleted posts
from ‘HanAssholeSolo’ which the network deemed offensive. CNN decided not to publish the the user’s
personal details, for now, because HanAssholeSolo has ‘showed his remorse’ for the ‘offending
posts’ and ‘ugly behavior’ – effectively threatening to expose a private citizen if he doesn’t
stay in line. Apology HanAssholeSolo issued an apology on Reddit
Tuesday, calling the video a “prank, nothing more.” �The meme was created purely as satire,
it was not meant to be a call to violence against CNN or any other news affiliation… …I had no idea anyone would take it and
put sound to it and then have it put up on the President�s Twitter feed.�

@CNN U basically coerce apology & threaten release of identity if something changes? Pretty sure a line is crossed here. #CNNBlackmail https://t.co/k4W9AepP6W
� Scott Taylor (@Scotttaylorva) July 5, 2017 Meanwhile, CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski has said
that people are misinterpreting the article. This line is being misinterpreted. It was intended only to mean we made no agreement
w/the man about his identity. https://t.co/9FL6EvTikx
� andrew kaczynski ???? (@KFILE) July 5, 2017 Sure Andrew… CNN isn’t publishing his name “because he
is a private citizen” who “showed remorse,” yet you reserve the right to expose his identity
if you don’t like how he behaves in the future. Sounds like a threat. How did they find him? While CNN maintains they were able to link
HanAssholeSolo’s posts to his Facebook account, a 4chan user claiming to be a CNN insider,
suggested that CNN obtained his IP address from his ISP and ‘unmasked’ him. Here’s how @CNN #CNNBlackmail went down, from
insider at @CNN that spiilled the beans on 4Chan. pic.twitter.com/05mfoqxzwj
� MicroSquatMagic� (@MicroBlackMagic) July 5, 2017 EPIC REACTIONS CNN’s latest blunder follows a devastating
week for the network, whose last shred of credibility was destroyed in a blaze of glory
by James O’Keefe last week. Reactions to the network’s threat to expose
(or ‘Dox’) Redditor HanAssholeSolo have been hilarious… you can see for yourself by searching
the hashtag #CNNBlackMail on Twitter. Donald’s happy day #CNNBlackMail

Current $TWC stock price is $101.38 which is a current spread of 6% to deal price. If 4chan is successful against #CNN then discount

� Ed (@DowdEdward) July 5, 2017 only wish CNN went after violent rioters and
antifa looters the way they go after someone who made a comical GIF. � GregGutfeld (@greggutfeld) July 5, 2017 Finally – 4chan has declared WAR #CNNBlackmail
4chan has declared war upon CNN,and soon others will follow Operation:Autism Storm will be
the beginning of the next Meme War pic.twitter.com/IwznqQz6Za � Dirt Man of Kekistan (@yahboiDirtMan)
July 5, 2017 CNN may have triggered a war against Reddit,
4chan, and an army of hackers. They have NO idea how ugly this could get. #CNNBlackMail
� RockPrincess (@Rockprincess818) July 5, 2017 This should go well for CNN In summary: Mon: “GIFs make people want to hurt us!” Tues: “Apologize or we’ll hurt you.”#CNNBlackmail
