by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline: Brief Recap: CNN has had an unbelievably bad couple of months where they have been busted publishing fake news, forced to retract, delete and apologize for one of those "stories", three employees have been forced to resign, another false story had to be changed, re-headlined because the information one of their "sources" gave them was completely wrong, Project Veritas posted undercover videos of CNN employees admitting the "Russia" narrative was BS, and a "nothingburger," and then to top it off, they decided to hunt down some random internet user who created a meme that President Trump tweeted out, threatened to reveal his identity if his "bad behavior" continued, which saw the creation of a viral hashtags #CNNBlackmail and #CNNMemeWars.
After their apparent threat and blackmail of a meme maker, now there are hundreds upon hundreds more memes, videos and GIF images still being created as the Internet fights back against CNN's lies, attacks against the internet community, Trump Derangement Syndrome, and their "Russia" fixation.
As a result of such negative publicity and CNN's self-inflicted wounds, their ratings tanked and they went below even Nick-at-Nite, taking 13th place, a campaign against their advertisers is still ongoing and their "reporting" has delved into the category of "pathetic," with a strange focus on how President Trump shakes hands with people, with a "second-by-second analysis of the Trump-Macron handshake," and the "never-ending handshake between Trump and Macron," in which they dedicated two separate articles on, by two different so-called journalists.

The fallout on social media has been brutal, every Facebook post, every tweet by a CNN employee, has seen the comment section taken over by those images, GIFs and memes, all worse than the originally WWE meme that offended them so badly they had to hunt down the anonymous creator and threaten him.
Another aspect of CNN's so-called reporting of late has been their desire to be the story rather than just reporting news, as evidenced by CNN's Jim Acosta constantly whining about a lack of video and cameras being part of the White House press gaggles, posting pictures of his socks as a means to complain that they can't video tape some of the briefings, and when the cameras are on, his making a spectacle of himself disrespectfully screeching questions while other reporters have been called on, basically trying to make sure he is the focus, rather than the briefing itself.
They just got their wish..... they are the story now.
PHASE TWO HAS BEEN LAUNCHED
Last night, phase two was kicked off, resulting in another trending viral hashtag, #CNNDirt, where social media users have been delving into the social media accounts of CNN employees. The launch of #CNNDirt appears to have been started by Jack Posobiec, Author of Citizens for Trump, filmmaker, and recovering political operative, who highlighted CNN journalist Rashard Elijah, showing his prior tweets about date rape, anti-white racism and more, linking to his Medium post which showed those tweets.
FAIR WARNING - Some of the examples that have been dug up as part of the #CNNDirt campaign are offensive and use some extreme language, but they come directly from CNN employees.
