On Sunday, I concluded this post with the words
It’s OK, WaPo.
Keep it up. The Reckoning will come.
A few days have passed, and in the time since, CNN has resorted to a tool of the trade among many of the younger political cyber denizens on the modern age: doxxing.
Worst of all, this episode has revealed that a large corporation will gladly engage in such activities against private citizens in defense of its consumerist brand; but most galling (and frightening) is that CNN has no qualms about publicly using this mysteriously uncovered knowledge as leverage for publicly extorting a private citizen.
Nice summary of events here.
On July 4th, Andrew Kaczynski of CNN’s investigative KFile Unit tweeted that CNN discovered HanAssholeSolo’s identity through biographical bits he left on Reddit. In an article published by CNN titled How CNN found the Reddit user behind the Trump wrestling GIF they wrote how they discovered his identity and said
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 criminal actions of CNN are so egregious and aggressive as to be a tad unbelievable, and that is the inherent danger here.
The flagrant nature of CNN’s methods dampens the incredulity of most normal people because they are largely ignorant of the cult of doxxing, and furthermore, they lazily place undeserved amounts of trust and legitimacy in large MSM brands. CNN can engage is such cartel tactics and generally get away with it because no one will call them to the carpet in an official and punitive forum.
Hand in hand with these acts of criminal leverage, we learn from The Guardian that investigators have taken their Trump’s Russian connection fetish to the next level of futility. They are now seeking to uncover Russian-Trump collusion designed to plant fake news stories with the intent of diminishing Hillary Clinton’s credibility.
Did Hillary not do a suitable job on her own? She did not need Russian intervention of accomplish this. She’s an unlikeable, disingenuous hag representing the artificial Washington D.C. elite. She did a fantastic job of severing her own legitimacy. What more did Donald Trump need to do ( by bringing in a third party) in order to help her along?
We can witness the defensive machinations of corporatized government mouthpieces (CGM) spring to action as they shift from the hacking narrative to the indirect manipulation of news narrative. Uh yeah…trying impeaching President Trump for such a nebulous cause of action, ie, colluding to make Hillary Clinton look bad.
LOL’s were experienced by all.
The ultimate defensive gesture of deferral to the “blame the Russians” DNC/MSM motif is written here, in red.
The spread of Russian-made fake news stories aimed at discrediting Hillary Clinton on social media is emerging as an important line of inquiry in multiple investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
Investigators are looking into whether Trump supporters and far-right websites coordinated with Moscow over the release of fake news, including stories implicating Clinton in murder or paedophilia, or paid to boost those stories on Facebook.
Therein lies the true motive, my friends. Buried deep in the DNC/MSM obligatory snippet.
CNN is not only shilling for the Democratic Party; they are now colluding with the elites to discredit well-founded evidence of institutional pedophilia.
But of course this is too outlandish to believe, is it not?
The same CNN (and the entire governmental wing of the MSM by extension) that happily (and silently) thrusts its head in the sand when physical threats are brazenly directed at a sitting President of the United States.
If CNN was slightly more inhibited about revealing its agenda, I might actually believe they cared about their role as deliverers of news and knowledge.
Or that the ‘C’ did not stand for children.
