Multi-billion dollar corporation CNN is Extorting a Private Citizen over a Joke Tweet!
CNN reported Tuesday that they declined to publicly identify the Reddit user who created the Trump CNN wrestling video because he promised not to do it again.
CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski then went on to say, “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”
CNN received a huge backlash after they threatened to release the identity of the Reddit user who created the anti-CNN video, but that didn’t stop Chris Cuomo from doubling down early Wednesday morning. Cuomo sent out a tweet saying, “Should CNN reveal the name of Reddit user who made Trump wrestling video? Had a lot of bigoted and hateful material on page and website.”
Cuomo deleted the tweet minutes after posting it. Perhaps his handlers at CNN advised him to as they have possibly committed a FEDERAL FELONY by threatening the Reddit user. Twitter users hammered CNN with more memes and videos using the hashtag ‘CNNBlackmail’. CNN just doesn’t understand how this works.

Founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange tweeted out late Tuesday night, ‘CNN committed a crime, violating 135.60 of the New York criminal code.’ Below is a description of the code:
But it may be worse than what Julian Assange posted.
It may be a federal felony.
Via TGP commenter Levon:
