CNN and Abuse of Power

"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."

Someone of Reddit modified a video of Trump at a wrestling match smacking the owner of the wrestling channel and put "CNN" over Vince McMahan's face. Trump retweeted it and hilarity ensued as the corporate media flipped out and claimed it could endanger reporters lives. CNN tracked down the person who made the video and he apologized. CNN said he sounded nervous. CNN then discussed exposing his identity to the world and the quote from above is what CNN wrote and posted.

CNN and the others in corporate media do not understand social media, they are only compounding their arrogance and lies for all to see. It is funny that the corporate media decries attacks on free speech while at the same time threatening and attacking people for exercising free speech on social media. If what CNN did was meant to threaten others, it backfired and the anti-CNN memes are now flowing at lightening speed. They may not like it; but, the corporate media no longer controls the narrative.
