CNN tickled pink they smacked down the Trump gif creator


The buzz yesterday because CNN was on the ropes over the threatening of someone who dared to create a anti CNN Gif on twitter, later picked up by Trump, was amazing. Because the world got to see how perverse CNN was. First I give you a short clip with Tammy Bruce expressing exactly how bizarre it was, then the amazed folks at CNN.

But for some reason, CNN host Alisyn Camerota expressed surprise and delight that the guy who created the video of Donald Trump taking down someone with the CNN logo superimposed on his face has apologized — after CNN unmasked him and tracked him down.

As Mike Lachance has reported, CNN tracked down the clip creator and threatened to dox him—to expose his identity and location—if he backed off his apology.

CNN and other media are pushing the line that if was proper to unmask the guy because he also had racist and anti-Semitic anonymous posts. But that’s not why CNN did this. CNN tracked the guy down because he creating a GIF mocking CNN, that then was used by CNN’s arch enemy, Trump.

Camerota is either extremely naive—or extremely cynical. Co-host Chris Cuomo wasn’t so wide-eyed, telling Camerota “when exposed, and identified, he then decided to apologize.”

But Camerota wouldn’t quit her Pollyanna impersonation, saying that she saw the apology as a possible “glimmer of hope.”

But it wasn’t the addendum. CNN threatened him that if he ever did it again, they would expose him, thus putting him at risk for what they already agreed would happen. Blackmail. That is what it is.

    When I was a child, I used to confuse the terms fourth estate and fifth column. Now they are the same.


  3. Steve Dennis Says:

    Nobody has actually seen the alleged racist and anti-Semitic posts, we are relying on CNN on this and right now we see how reliable they are. Threatening people because they do not agree with you is not cool and yet CNN has embraced it, my how they have fallen in the last week or two. It has actually been quite enjoyable I must say.

    CNN really showed itself for what it is: fascistic and the enemy of freedom of expression.

    Oh, Jeeze the second video was even worse. The station is so bereft of viewers, advertising and ratings, they would have outed the guy it added a single dollar to their bottom line. Thanks for the post, I needed the humor this morning.

      Clueless….and Camerotta was on Fox for many years and at the time she seemed to be rather sane. That is what will happen to one if one hangs with the wrong kind of people.

    CNN and it’s entire staff could not find their asses in the dark if their hands were crazy glued to them. Now that is a fact.J.C.

    IMO … no conservative should ever buy from a sponsor of any CNN program. If we could just achieve that, we could solve CNN forever.
