Earlier this morning, CNN contributor Andrew Kaczynski posted a lengthy article on the cable news outlet’s website that serves as a sort of response to a tweet uploaded by President Trump, in which the President roughs up WWE promoter Vince McMahon with the CNN logo superimposed onto the latter’s face. Although most of the article is nothing to get up in arms over, Kaczynski did include three sentences that easily summed up CNN’s sentiments regarding the law:
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.
Essentially, CNN is saying that they will engage in illegal activities (particularly Doxing in this situation) if anyone criticizes the network in any way. Oh, and by the way, HanA**holeSolo has since removed his Reddit account; the page can be found here.
The president’s son took to Twitter alleging that the maker of the .gif was a 15-year-old – a fact disputed by the cable news network.

And then Twitter users lit the #CNNBlackmail hashtag on fire:

Regardless, it’s worth noting how the tone of this article is far unlike the usual matter-of-fact smugness of. In fact, it proves that CNN at least holds the same ideology as the elites in our government they’re charged with reporting upon (seeing as how Kaczynski’s article passed through the editorial team without a hitch).
In any case, it will take a long time for CNN to stand back up after this situation, and I doubt they’ll be unharmed. They might even be unable to stay conscious altogether.
