    In case you hadn't heard

    You can't make fun of the fake news media. They can lie, promote one person or side over another, badger somebody for ages without a shred of evidence to support their claims, trash the average person, promote misfits and degenerates, fill the airwaves with endless propaganda. But don't you dare poke fun at them!


    Or else!!

    BACKLASH: #CNNBlackmail Trends As Grassroots Boycott Of CNN Advertisers Begins

    CNN's terrifying decision to threaten to personally destroy HanA**holeSolo, the person who created the epic WWE video President Trump tweeted out last week, CNN's chilling move to go the full-Brownshirt against some nobody goofing on the Internet, does not surprise me at all. What is a little shocking is how open the leftwing network was about its mafia tactics. A threat, an actual threat, a warning to others, right there in print! On CNN! [emphasis added]

    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.

    Hey, that's a nice life you got there. Be a shame if anything happened to it.

    In other words, CNN, a multi-billion dollar, mega-media corporation will be watching the behavior of a private citizen (all of us, really) and should this person (all of us, really) ever be discovered behaving in a way that this multi-billion dollar, mega-media corporation disapproves, this multi-billion dollar, mega-corporation will ruin this person's life (all of our lives, really) — will reveal YOUR name, will see to it that you lose your job, are harassed out of your home, and whatever other horrors CNN's fascist SJW Army can come up with.

    The fact that this immoral and breathtakingly unethical Big Brother bullying is coming from CNN's Andrew Kaczynski, makes it a little less surprising. Kaczynski has a nasty track record of abusing his corporate power to pull the wings off of private citizens. While at BuzzFeed, Kaczynski, who obviously suffers from Little Man's Syndrome, once spent his Christmas Eve orchestrating his online lynch mob to destroy a young woman's life, a nobody with fewer than a thousand Twitter followers, all over a tasteless joke Kaczynski did not approve of.

    What this is about was a case where a woman in South Africa laughed about how many of the people going there didn't know anything about the geography. This happened as she was getting ready to board a plane. For that Kaczynski called her racist. While she was flying, Kaczynski was whipping up SJWs to attack her. When she landed she was mobbed. They also badgered her workplace, making her lose her job. They kept after her, so she had to go into hiding.

    This is the guy who decided CNN "reserves the right" to destroy this kid (a 15-year-old) if they choose to do so. For making fun of them.


    The good news is that on the 4th of July, and through the beauty of democracy via the awesome power of social media, the Proles are striking back.

    To call attention to CNN's Hitler-tactics, the Twitter tag #CNNBlackmail is not only trending, it is (as I write this) the number one trend on TwitterNets. To say this corporate bullying is blowing up in CNN's face is a massive understatement. But wait, there's more...

    The Proles are also using the awesome power of social media to launch a grassroots boycott against CNN's advertisers. In other words, the good guys have finally figured out how to use the Left's tactics against the Left.

    Make no mistake, this is a public relations disaster of massive proportions for CNN — every bit as bad, probably worse, than the previous month, which was a trainwreck filled with forced resignations, massive corrections, mind-blowing retractions, and a ratings death spiral. That was different, though. Attacking the President of the United States with hate and lies is one thing...

    HanA**holeSolo is a private citizen, and some believe HanSoloA**hole is just a kid, a 15-year-old kid. Man alive.

    If you doubt this is a disaster for CNN, click the #CNNBlackmail tag. The Proles are furious at this corporate-bullying, and rightly so.

    They hit a nerve. 4CHAN (the people who went after Shia Lebouf, found the guy hitting people with the bike lock, tracked down a lot of information on MoldyLocks when she tried to play victim after being the aggressor, etc) and others have decided to make CNN their mission.

    I don't condone some of what they do. But I'm smart enough not to make enemies of them.

    Q: What do you call somebody who threatens a teenager for something they didn't do?

    A: CNN.

    OMG! CNN Targeted WRONG PERSON – POTUS Trump Took Wrestling Video from DIFFERENT USER!

    CNN reported Tuesday that they declined to publicly identify the Reddit user who created the Trump CNN wrestling video because he promised not to do it again.

    CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski then went on to say, “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”

    That is extortion.
    They threatened to dox him.


    It turns out that CNN has targeted the wrong person! Analysis of the video shows evidence that the wrestling video President Trump posted to his Twitter account did not originate from this particular Reddit user.



    The Daily Wire reports:

    The meme Trump tweeted wasn’t generated by HanA**holeSolo. CNN shot first.

    According to BuzzFeed, “one user pointed out that what Trump tweeted wasn’t actually HanA**holeSolo’s GIF.” Trump’s gif included both video and audio – whereas the Rebel smuggler wannabe’s gif did not include audio. Furthermore, the original HanA**holeSolo gif “was shorter, had a different aspect ratio, and had a WWE logo in the corner…Not even the colors are processed in the same manner… HanAssholeSolo’s GIF has an NTSC aspect ratio, because it was cut directly from a taping of analog Westlemania footage. Trump’s video has an aspect ratio of 16:9.”

    BuzzFeed continues:

    Someone downloaded the GIF that HanAssholeSolo originally posted to Reddit. Then that person cropped it to better fit a video player like Facebook or YouTube. Then they went through the effort of syncing it back up with audio from the original clip. Then that person put it somewhere where Trump or one of Trump’s people could see it and download it. Then whoever found the video version had to get it to Trump’s phone.

    Per CNN, a senior Trump administration official said that the video was not pulled from Reddit. Well, it looks like once again President Trump is telling the truth while Fraud News Network CNN gets caught posting FAKE NEWS!

    On Monday, a senior administration official told CNN that the video was not pulled from Reddit. The White House still has not responded to a series of questions from CNN asking how the video ended up as a tweet from the President.

    "What? Do you know who we are? We're CNN!! You have to tell us everything we ask because we're more powerful than anybody!"

    Now I see why they spread so much phony news. They aren't worth a damn at investigating even simple stuff.

    They deserve every bit of fallout they get from this. Because it was a simple joke and they overreacted. All because their feelings were hurt. I promise you 4CHAN won't let it go until they get tired of it or CNN is destroyed, whichever comes first.

    Gainor: CNN Has Become a ‘Blackmail Organization’ – ‘This Is What the Mob Does’

    Dan Gainor, Vice President of Business and Culture at the Media Research Center joined Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow today to discuss CNN’s latest debacle in which it “befouled its reputation yet again,” according to Gainor.

    Referring to CNN’s Andrew Kacynski, Gainor said, “It’s a very terrifying thing when your staffer, who used to work for Buzzfeed, which is just the gutter of journalism, comes out there and basically threatens somebody for a social media post.”

    “If CNN had responded to this, the initial video, and said, look, we’ve got a lot of issues with the President and the press but this was clearly a joke, we’re not going to take ti seriously. It’s a professional wrestling meme for goodness sake, then I think people wouldn’t look at them and as the clowns that they have become,” he added.

    Gainor said, “The response is unified Left and Right,” referring to the strong objections to what CNN did, adding, “CNN is supposed to be a news organization, not a blackmail organization. And you cannot read that story the way it’s written without thinking that they’re threatening this guy.”

    “I want people to understand this,” said Gainor. “Any anonymous post you’ve ever made on the Internet could be used to destroy you under this philosophy. I’m sorry. That’s not what a news organization does. That is what the mob does,” said Gainor.

    Kaczynski would have a great future if he got started working for Chelsea Hubbell or something. Then he wouldn't have to be satisfied with blackmailing people. He could kill them, too.

    Ted Cruz: CNN May Have Broken The Law With Doxxing Threat

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said CNN may have broken the law in threatening to publicly expose the person who created a GIF of Donald Trump appearing to beat up a man with a CNN logo for a head.

    After the president tweeted out the GIF last week, CNN has been on a warpath to hunt down the creator and make him pay. In an article published Tuesday, entitled “How CNN found the Reddit user behind the Trump wrestling GIF,” Andrew Kaczynski had this to say about why the network decided to keep his identity under wraps.

    CNN is not publishing ‘HanA**holeSolo’s’ name because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his 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.

    The thinly veiled threat in CNN’s story has spurred much criticism, as detailed in an article by Peter Hasson at The Daily Caller, which the Texas senator tweeted out Wednesday morning along with a note about how the network may have broken Georgia state laws.



    The law Cruz cited (GA § 16-8-16) states that it is a crime to unlawfully obtain property from another person by threatening to “disseminate any information tending to subject any person to hatred, contempt, or ridicule or to impair his credit or business repute.”

    CNN, which is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, may have violated that law when it threatened to publicly identify the Reddit user — thereby subjecting him to hatred, contempt, and ridicule — unless he apologized and promised to never disagree with or be mean to the TV network again.

    In addition to potentially violating the law, CNN may have also violated Twitter’s terms of service, which stipulates that threats are considered “abusive behavior,” which is strictly forbidden.

    “We do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice,” Twitter’s rules stipulate. 

    CNN’s own Brian Stelter tweeted out a link to the aforementioned policy when he wondered in public if the GIF itself violated Twitter’s terms.



    This also doesn’t appear to be the first time a CNN employee extorted an apology from a person by threatening to publicly identify him. CNN producer Donie O’Sullivan  bragged on Twitter that he had recently done the same thing.



    “I tracked down a guy who was trolling me recently,” O’Sullivan wrote. “Once he realized I had identified him he apologized and asked me not to tie all the anti-Semitic, racist, and sexist posts he had shared back to him.”

    They might have been able to pretend innocence by claiming they didn't realize what they'd done was blackmail. But the guy bragging about it, especially in the way he did, proves intent.

    If you have any CNN memorabilia it may or may not be a good idea to hold onto it. It might be valuable one day. Unless CNN drags that possibility to the grave along with the networks they run.

    On the upside for AT&T (but not for me because I'll never use AT&T again either) is they can probably drop their bid for Time-Warner by a few billion. Or maybe just drop it altogether and buy up leftover equipment to start their own network system for pennies on the dollar in a year or so after Time-Warner gets dragged under by this mess.

    Remember the time Andrew Kaczynski accused the wrong person of being a terrorist and that person killed themselves?

    You will now!

    The CNN Writer Behind Dox Threat Once Drove A Man To Suicide By Spreading Fake News

    CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski, the reporter currently under fire for threatening to dox the alleged creator of President Donald Trump’s infamous WWE video, once spread false information about a man being a terrorist, after which said man killed himself.


    According to a New York Times article from 2013, in April of that year – on the day of the Boston Marathon bombings – a man by the name of Greg Hughes tweeted, “BPD scanner has identified the names. Suspect 1: Mike Mulugeta. Suspect 2: Sunil Tripathi.”

    Of course, neither actually turned out to be the bomber in question.

    Still – despite the unverified nature of Hughes’ claim – a journalist by the name of Kevin Galliford proceeded to share those names.

    The New York Times states that Kaczynski – who was working for BuzzFeed at the time – proceeded to share the information himself, along with the words, “Wow Reddit was right about the missing Brown student per the police scanner. Suspect identified as Sunil Tripathi.”

    According to The New York Times, Reddit users came to identify Tripathi after claiming there was a resemblance between him (right side) and the suspect. This appears to be where Hughes got the information from, as opposed to a police scanner. According to The Atlantic, Tripathi’s name had never even been mentioned on the scanner.

    Kaczynski’s 81,000 followers quickly latched onto the information and it spread, with journalists and civilians alike accepting the Kaczynski-approved Reddit theory that Tripathi – who had been suffering from depression and disappeared a full month before the bombing – was the suspect.

    Of course, he wasn’t. But despite the fact that police hadn’t identified Tripathi as a suspect, journalists and civilians alike took the dubious information for truth and began bombarding the Tripathi family with phone calls and messages.

    By the time the actual bombing suspects were identified, The New York Times reports that Tripathi’s body had been discovered in a river.


    The cause of death was suicide.

    According to The New York Times, Kaczynski subsequently “deleted his incriminating tweets” and carried on like normal, writing a post-mortem of the incident for BuzzFeed that contained no mention of his involvement in spreading the falsehood about Tripathi.

    As Mike Cernovich puts it, “Kaczynski did not merely spread minor fake news. He ruined a young man’s life by falsely accusing him of a horrific act of terrorism.”

    Interestingly enough, Kaczynski – who now works for CNN – is currently going around accusing other people of sharing false information on Twitter and failing to provide corrections.

    It may also be that one of Andy's peaceful followers on Twitter killed the guy Clinton-like.
