In a nutshell CNN went after the maker of the now infamous Trump-CNN-WWE gif, and are now taking a victory lap for more or less being a bully! Of course the backlash has been fierce against this corrupt news entertainment provider. Countless CNN related gifs are being made in response including one from yours truly!
It would also appear the network could find themselves in court as Julian Assange and Sen Ted Cruz point out the network engaged in coercion....
CNN just committed a crime violating § 135.60 of the New York criminal code "coercion" https://t.co/FwPPlczPRhhttps://t.co/AHQhjDS6ds pic.twitter.com/a7HAdMQQDV— Julian Assange (@JulianAssange) July 5, 2017

(1/2) Troubling. I assume CNN's lawyers are examining GA § 16-8-16 Theft by extortion. If CNN constructively obtained the gif-maker's IP... https://t.co/ChxqocuDgc— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) July 5, 2017
(2/2) it's a GA crime if they threatened to "Disseminate any information tending to subject any person to hatred, contempt, or ridicule...." https://t.co/ChxqocuDgc— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) July 5, 2017
One would hope the accused Reddit user, HanAssholeSolo, would lawyer up and hammer CNN into the ground for First and Fourth (possibly Fifth) Amendment violations, but don't hold your breath.
CNN has declared war on Pres Trump and Americans with this action. And no I don't care what this HanAssholeSolo has said or done outside of this (suggestions they've posted legit offensive content). There's this thing called the First Amendment, it's not to protect friendly agreeable speech, but the most offensive. You have a right to say what you want without coming under attack. Apparently CNN is not aware of this and someone should send them a copy of the Constitution.
