CNN just committed extortion.
And they did it in view of everyone.
On Tuesday, CNN blackmailed a user on the popular message board site Reddit that originally posted the video of President Trump “taking down” CNN at WWE’s WrestleMania.
The controversial news organization found the identity of the Redditor — and are threatening to release his personal information if he steps out of line.
It’s pure blackmail. Here’s what the CNN article said about the WWE video’s creator “HanA**holeSolo”:
“After posting his apology, “HanA**holeSolo” called CNN’s KFile and confirmed his identity. In the interview, “HanA**holeSolo” sounded nervous about his identity being revealed and asked to not be named out of fear for his personal safety and for the public embarrassment it would bring to him and his family.
“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 article concluded.
Wikileaks even pointed out the criminal act.
