The Fake News Network, previously known as the Communist News Network, and/or the Clinton News Network, known for working with liberal Democrats to spread fake news through sophisticated propaganda campaigns, has stooped to a new low.
The butt-hurt powers that be at the Fake News Network, enraged at the President for posting a 30 second animated GIF of President Trump clothes-lining a person with the CNN logo imposed over their face, then pummeling them on the ground, put their extensive investigative resources to use over the 4th of July weekend and located the person who created the animated GIF.
The person who created the animated GIF initially posted it on Reddit under the user name “HanA**holeSolo” last Wednesday.
The Fake News Network is now boasting that the user has apologized, writing in a lengthy post on Reddit that he does not advocate violence against the press and expressing remorse for that and other post he made.
Andrew Kaczynski, the author of the CNN article I read this morning, boast that the apology came after CNN’s KFile identified the person who put the animated GIF on Reddit. He goes on in detail how he was able to use “identifying information” that “HanA**holeSolo” posted on Reddit that enabled him to then determine “key biographical details” that helped him find the man’s name on Facebook.
Having an investigative background myself, that seems like a little too much information in the story, most likely done to deny having done anything inappropriate or utilizing any inappropriate sources to obtain the details of the persons identity.
After the Fake News Network located “HanA**holeSolo he removed all of his “inappropriate” post and posted the following apology:
“First of all, I would like to apologize to the members of the reddit community for getting this site and this sub embroiled in a controversy that should never have happened,” he wrote. “I would also like to apologize for the posts made that were racist, bigoted, and anti-semitic. I am in no way this kind of person, I love and accept people of all walks of life and have done so for my entire life. I am not the person that the media portrays me to be in real life, I was trolling and posting things to get a reaction from the subs on reddit and never meant any of the hateful things I said in those posts. I would never support any kind of violence or actions against others simply for what they believe in, their religion, or the lifestyle they choose to have. Nor would I carry out any violence against anyone based upon that or support anyone who did.”
“The meme was created purely as satire, it was not meant to be a call to violence against CNN or any other news affiliation,” he wrote. “I had no idea anyone would take it and put sound to it and then have it put up on the President’s Twitter feed. It was a prank, nothing more. What the President’s feed showed was not the original post that was posted here, but loaded up somewhere else and sound added to it then sent out on Twitter. I thought it was the original post that was made and that is why I took credit for it. I have the highest respect for the journalist community and they put their lives on the line every day with the jobs that they do in reporting the news.”
According to the Fake News Network author, “AFTER” “HanA**holeSolo” posted his apology he returned CNN’s KFile’s call and confirmed his identity. The author claims he sounded nervous about his identity being revealed and asked that his name not be revealed out of fear for his personal safety and the public embarrassment it would bring to him and his family.
The Fake News Network author then writes:
“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.”
If I am sounding really cynical about this, it’s because I am NOT buying it… CNN used their resources, some probably in an inappropriate, if not illegal way, then fed this guy what they wanted him to write and say publicly, then threatened to give his name up to all the psycho liberal clowns terrorizing everyone if he did not do and say what he was told to do…
Why else would FNN make the comment about him being a private citizen showing remorse and being such a fine example of what not to do for others, then saying they reserve the right to publish his identity should that change?
It sounds like they scared the poor kid half to death… He is only 15-years-old.
If anyone has a good idea for a video clip to edit, send it to me… I have a fully equipped AVID editing workstation and would be more than happy to impose and track the CNN logo… Then I’ll give my name to CNN and anyone else who wants it after President Trump tweets it out…
Of course by then everyone at CNN involved in blackmailing this poor kid should be behind bars…. Right, like that would happen.. Pretty spineless of them to go after some kid because President Trump hurt their feelwings… Anyone feel sorry for them?
