With Trump’s war against the mainstream media, you know the major newspapers and TV stations, except Fox News, is going to side with CNN. They dindunuffin wrong. In fact, they probably didn’t do enough. They should have published HanAssholeSolo’s personal details, instead of spending hours to find out who he was by data mining every single detail they could get from Reddit, to find his Facebook Profile, and then contact him.
Remember Donie O’Sullivan was out to punish a bully. He wanted to make him apologise publicly, embarrassing him into silence. Remember, men are more likely to be publicly embarrassed with online harassment than women.
So, Donie and Andrew Kaczynski probably did their best to force an apology under threat of doxing HanAssholeSolo. The reason, you don’t change your answers that much based upon a controversy, if you know you didn’t do anything wrong.
Even if the sequence of events was, they emailed HanAssholeSolo, saying these are your public details and we know you said these things and we would like to talk to you about this, anybody would have panicked, delete everything bad they are being accused of, offer an apology, and then contact CNN directly and agree with anything they want him to agree with.
If any other meme warrior gets that kind of email, I recommend saying this. I am a private citizen, and I do not give you right to publish my details. I am contacting my lawyer right now, and I will martyr myself to expose how corrupt and evil your news organisation is. Please give me what I want assholes.
I will have a case, because my online anonymity is protected by law, and you could face up to 10 years in jail depending on what you do, and be liable for the 10 million dollar lawsuit I am going to pursue.
Journalists are not allowed to publish the information you wish to be protected, You must be on the record for them to publish your name. So you take their power away from them.
And even though the Meme warriors (because some of us think Trump is a joke, like myself) have CNN on the ropes, taking them down with our jokes and our condemnation of an organisation who wants to silence us. The only reason why they did that to HanAssholeSolo is to silence all of the alternative media. They want to take away or memes.
Ted Cruz, the Republican senator, said CNN’s story was “troubling” and suggested it could be seen as extortion.
In a statement, Matt Dornic, a spokesman for the network, said that “CNN decided not to publish the name of the Reddit user out of concern for his safety,” and that “any assertion that the network blackmailed or coerced him is false.”
The user apologized and deleted his Reddit account before speaking with Mr. Kaczynski, the statement said.
“CNN never made any deal, of any kind, with the user,” Mr. Dornic said. “In fact, CNN included its decision to withhold the user’s identity in an effort to be completely transparent that there was no deal.”
Crazy Ted Cruz, you’re wrong. Even though this looks like a multi-billion dollar organisation who put resources into finding everything about HanAssholeSolo because they wanted to punish a bully, they weren’t doing that. They’re protecting him after he apologised. It reminds me of something Judge Judy says.
And now the NYTimes is coming in defence of what CNN has done. The mainstream media is now at war against the alternative media. They thought they had won when they attacked a major income source of the alternative media, Ad Sense through YouTube, but we fought back, and we expanded our Patreon accounts, and so we didn’t disappear like they hoped. Next, they attacked some random dude on the Internet, HanAssholeSolo, and we responded back, firing every arrow at their corrupt bullshit.
They are on the ropes now. It is time to give them that final knockout punch.
They can take our memes over our dead bodies.
