CNN Blackmails Creator Of Trump Meme
In what has been arguably the worst month for the Cable News Network ever, the media company has decided to start an all out war with the Internet. All of this follows the Tweeting out of a meme by President Trump depicting Pro Wrestling star Vince McMahon with a CNN logo superimposed on his face, being body-slammed by President Trump.
It took literally seconds for Cable news anchors to 'condemnin' this 'incitement to violence' by the President against the Media, and used the tweet as an opportunity to once again push for Donald Trump's resignation or impeachment.
But that was just the beginning... CNN began to dig online. Diggig for the origin of this 'hate filled meme.' Andrew Kaczynski, a CNN journalist looked on 4Chan/pol/, they looked on 8Chan, and finally they looked on r/The_Donald. Kaczynski soon found exactly what he was looking for. A user named "HanAssholeSolo" who posted the meme on June 29, days before anyone else.
CNN followed the breadcrumbs, until they discovered the user's identity, location and phone number. They published the whole sordid affair online, for all to see, but they made a mis-calculation.
CNN decided not to publish the man’s name, explaining that he was a private citizen, and he’d issued an apology, showed remorse, and promised not to “repeat this ugly behavior on social media again.” The report added: “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”
And that is where the proverbial crap hits the fan... What CNN did was out and out BLACKMAIL, and according to Julian Assange, is also ILLEGAL in the state of New York - § 135.60 of the New York criminal code:
The text from the code says that it is illegal for someone, or a company to:
compel or induce a person to … abstain from engaging in conduct in which he or she has a legal right to engage … by means of instilling in him or her a fear that, if the demand is not complied with, the actor or another will … Expose a secret or publicize an asserted fact, whether true or false, tending to subject some person to hatred, contempt or ridicule
And what, exactly would happen if CNN did decide to publish the user's real identity? We all know how well tempered, respectful and peaceful the Left has been ever since the election of our President... They would probably burn his house down.
So, finally, the hoardes of internet users, now given legitimate cause have begun the process of memeing CNN into oblivion.
Within hours of CNN's story being published, #CNNBlackmail became a #1 trend on Twitter, even MORE than people posting about the 4th of July:

A huge news organization hunting down a private citizen for a tweet then threatening to dox him? #CNNBlackmail
But, is it possible that CNN singled out user "HanAssholeSolo" for reasons other than the meme that Trump Re-Tweeted?
Thanks to the sleuthing of NYT Reporter Jared Sexton, ANOTHER meme created (or at least shared by) "HanAssholeSolo" has been exposed:
Here's another meme from the guy Trump tweeted, this one showing CNN personalities with Jewish stars. pic.twitter.com/BJoJ751eMQ— Jared Yates Sexton (@JYSexton) July 2, 2017
If the resolution of that Tweet is not good enough for you, I tracked down a hi-res copy that you can see by clicking here. As it turns out, the meme is fairly accurate. On the one hand, it has led to Internet users to question CNN's diversity ethics, while on the other hand, cries of Anti-Semitism from media staffers have flooded the headlines and airwaves.
Is it possible that CNN has singled out "HanAssholeSolo" because they fear their lack of diversity will be exposed?
