by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline: Brief recap: In June CNN was forced to change headlines and a story that was completely false, then forced to retract another fake news article, delete all links to it and apologize while forcing three employees to resign over it, on top of project Veritas capturing CNN employees admitting the whole Russia narrative they have been pumping for the past six months was "bullsh*t" and a "nothingburger."
Could it get any worse for CNN? Glad you asked, it just did.
After months of attacking President Trump, his family and his supporters, the president struck back with an amusing GIF where footage from WrestleMania 23 in 2007 where Trump went up against WWE CEO Vince McMahon during a "Battle of the Billionaires" match, has been retouched to show the President body-slamming a figure with the letters "CNN" superimposed over the person's head.
With the typical snowflake, social justice warrior mentality, CNN and the rest of the establishment media went into full victimhood mode, claiming the GIF of Trump body-slamming a logo, was somehow an incitement to violence against all media.
CNN THREATENS TO DOX REDDIIT USER OVER WWE GIF
Definition for Dox: search for and publish private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet, typically with malicious intent.
CNN, not knowing when to quit when their journalistic malpractice was finally out of the spotlight, decided to shoot themselves in the head by "tracking down" a Reddit user who claimed he originally created the much talked about and shared GIF the president tweeted, then publishing an article saying the original Reddit user had apologized so they would not be publishing his name unless of course the user decided to go back to his "ugly behavior on social media," in where "CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change."
Instantly the Twitter #1 trending hashtag was created #CNNBlackmail, where even progressive liberal writers like the senior reporter for Vox, German Lopez, states "I can't emphasize how bad this is on CNN's part. This is basically "don't post stuff we don't like or we'll dox you." Extremely unethical."
Headlines now are calling CNN "Thug Journalism," and others calling them the Media Mafia, while CNN, for the fourth time in so many weeks, is now back into complete damage control mode, with CNN KFile's Andrew Kaczynski is denying the passage quoted above was a "threat."
To highlight how much damage control spin CNN is attempting right now, before the backlash for threatening to dox the Reddit user them, Kaczynski claimed the "apology came after CNN identified" the Reddit user that created the original GIF meme, but after #CNNBlackmail started trending, the same CNN employees then tweeted the Reddit user "posted his apology before we ever spoke to him," captured in the screen shots being shared at the hashtag, just in case Kacynski decides to delete the original statement.
