CNN Self Immolates: Deleted Tweets, Airport Shunning, Oh - And They Got The Wrong Guy

One week after James O'Keefe destroyed CNN's last shred of credibility, the network rife with ham-handed propagandists has doused itself in gasoline and lit a match - forever condemning themselves to irrelevancy and ridicule.

As you are now aware along with the rest of the world, CNN went on a witch hunt over the weekend to track down the identity of Reddit user 'HanAssholeSolo,' who they claimed is responsible for creating a video of Trump beating up a man with a CNN logo for a head, which the President tweeted on Saturday.

After discovering the man's identity - through possibly illegal means, the network threatened to expose the Redditor's identity, 'doxing' him. In response, the internet exploded with rage - creating dozens of new similar CNN memes and receiving a formal declaration of war from 4chan users, who have begun 'unmasking' CNN employees for the world to harass.

Deleted Tweets

After the immense public backlash over CNN's witch hunt, CNN's Chris "that sucks" Cuomo - a giant douche, deleted a tweet asking followers "Should CNN reveal name of Reddit user who made trump wrestling video?"

CNN journalist Andrew Kaczynski who went on the Witch Hunt for HanAssholeSolo also deleted a tweet from 2012 - and was promptly called out by Donald Trump Jr. (whose Twitter account has been on fire).

Airport Shunning

After a tweet from Mike Cernovich calling for airports to stop showing CNN, it's been reported - with a crappy photograph, that Atlanta international airport has shut off the Very Fake News Network!

It appears that CNN GOT THE WRONG GUY

As Buzzfeed of all places points out "As Reddit was celebrating HanAssholeSolo's victory, one user pointed out that what Trump tweeted wasn't actually HanAssholeSolo's GIF."

While Solo maintains it was his video with sound added, Buzzfeed also notes that HanAssholeSolo's original GIF was shorter, had a different aspect ratio, and had a WWE logo in the corner.

Also - according to TweetDeck, Trump's tweet was sent from an iPhone, so someone would have had to send it to the President via private message or emailed attachment, and was uploaded to Twitter via his camera roll.

Per Buzzfeed:

So what does this all mean?

"Someone downloaded the GIF that HanAssholeSolo originally posted to Reddit. Then that person cropped it to better fit a video player like Facebook or YouTube. Then they went through the effort of syncing it back up with audio from the original clip. Then that person put it somewhere where Trump or one of Trump's people could see it and download it. Then whoever found the video version had to get it to Trump's phone."

Lastly an unverified 4chan user from Mexico claims to have created the GIF months ago...

Examine what is happening outside the box ...

CNN is not on self destruct it is using the laughter at itself to distract from what they have been doing.

Keep on laughing people, that is about the best thing they have going for them right now.

But they survive this way to do it all over again ...

GreatUncle's picture

You vote CNN =

Clinton News Network (globalist)

Comedy news network (distraction)

I upvote myself on this one, let them look foolsih but their only goal is 1.) never 2.) although 2.) is the way they preserve 1.)

When asked his thoughts on this topic, Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said:

Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know.

We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don't know we don't know.

And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tend to be the difficult ones.

The original pusher of NutraSweet. Remember that poisonous shit? Had a corporate logo that looked like a peppermint candy?
As we learned in Space Balls 2: A Seach for More Money beyond merchandizing, it's about rebranding. Kind of like ISIS.

Which, by the way, is a subsidiary of CNN.

CNN is the most vile corporate state propaganda. That AYNONE pays the least attention to the codswallop they're spweing does not speak well about most people's critical thinking abilities. They're fooking morons is what I'm saying.
So glad to see the bastards shoot hemselves in the foot, again.

Tell me – is ignorance bliss?

US only have right-wing political parties and entities. US is owned by private capital interests/capitalists and it is not crony-capitalism but pure capitalism = an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production. No political powers in US challenges this system – all celebrates and enforces it.

Free markets – that so many indoctrinated plebs on this site uses as an argument against the current system being capitalism – are not a prerequisite of capitalism. Rather free markets will never last in a capitalistic economy (like the theoretical initial meritocracy won’t). Wealth/power/capital will naturally be concentrated in fewer and fewer hands – yes, maybe with some mobility, but in a lesser and lesser degree ending with no mobility (=neo-feudalism or “rentier capitalism” – what we have today).

I understand why the plebs in US have been conditioned to have no clues regarding ideologies and that there’s huge interest in making sure the sickness (capitalism) is misdiagnosed as “socialism”/left-wing. Otherwise you might walk out of the controlled opposition sphere.

Of course these LIES could not be promulgated without the USA's Feral Gangster Government's Organs of State Propaganda (the 6 CONporations that control at least 90% of all News Media and Entertainment companies).  There is a synergy between the CONporate control of Hollywood Entertainment businesses and the Organs of State Propaganda.  

The Organs of State Propaganda make extensive use of Hollywood's:

o latest digital special effects to create virtual "crisis actors" and "victims" of bombings, shootings, chemical weapons attacks or whatever, wherever, whenver;

o green screens and/or blue screens that allows them to make it look like they are really on scene when in reality they are sitting in their air conditioned studios in New York City;

o software that can literally put words into the mouth of anyone whom they have extensive footage so that it looks so real that you can't tell the difference.

It's a Brave New World and the propagandists use technologies that make it virtually impossible to tell the difference between Hollywood's movie magic and the real world. Can you tell the difference between the FAKE NEWS and Hollywood's latest movies?  Do you actually believe that what you are seeing on the FAKE NEWS is real?  

Just look at that recent video of President Donald Trump body slamming the guy with "CNN" for a head that has the entire FAKE NEWS hyperventilating.  That was made by an amatuer.  Just think how CNN could have made it look.

Indeed, given the fog of total bullshit we are faced with 24/7, it's damn near impossible, not to mention exhausting, trying to figure out just WTF is really going on.
These are times when it is best to learn to live gracefully with uncertainty.

Pernicious Gold Phallusy's picture

This must be incorrect. News organizations are careful to verify what they publish.

gregga777's picture

Yes, the so-called News Media gets their news copy straight from the United States of America's Feral Gangster Government. It was the US government's NSA, in this case, that got it all wrong. The cucks at CNN are totally s***faced "not so innocent" bystanders.

Donald Trump won, and the aftermath and exposure of the liberal media knuckleheads is a continual source of pleasure and enjoyment. CNN's (and following soon, MSNBC's) demise will be well-deserved and not be mourned.

Memedada's picture

Donald Trump won what? The position of prime middle management figure-head? And won what “competition” – the one with the Goldman Sachs banker candidate (Hillary) vs. the fiat Ponzi scheme billionaire gold-spoon in ass candidate (Trump)? US “democracy” is a farce. US and its people (apparent on this site too) are owned.

And yes, CNN is pure propaganda - like ALL THE REST OF MSN/99% of the media landscape (including FOX/bastions of Trumpards).

Yes, we know. They also poison wells and sacrifice Christian babies in their rituals. They are also responsible for ALL the ills of the world. If we could just get rid of them . . .

Much ado about nothing.

CNN was and is a dead man stumbling toward the grave it dug for itself.

Time Warner is negligent in its management of CNN.

ATT would be idiots to continue with the merger.

We Are The Priests's picture

Which would be good thing, because we really could do without further consolidation of ownership of the press.

Hmmm, maybe that was DJT's plan all along.

Dormouse's picture

I explained this to simple-minded black-bitch manager (Quanisha) at Time-Warren today—TWC owns TBS which owns CNN, you are an ISP which means you helped your subsidiary "unmask" this Redditor for extortion and blackmail.

"NAW, NAW, NAW, We a cable provider and just put they station on the air."

"What fucking 'air' are you talking about? You just said 'cable', do you even know what the fuck you're talking about or why you were hired at a managerial position? Because YOU IS STUPID!"

Merging with AT&T would certainly qualify this mega-conglomerate as "too big to fail" since the employees definitely don't have a clue what the fuck is going on.

Antivenom's picture

Once ATT has control of Time Warner...ATT will assign Zucker to some lame job...or run him off...CNN will be tossed aside...ATT has no intentions of wasting their time or money on this cast of losers.

CNN has single handedly triangulated themselves into a corner and they are holding a ticking time bomb...they awarded themselves...
