Sounds like pretty shitty behaviour. I also don't buy the "I think he was promoting violence" that I heard someone say in a news segment. I don't think most people would see it that way.
That's not to say that Trump hasn't promoted violence before. Just don't think that's the case here.

Bit confused, didn't they catch out a CNN producer admitting on candid camera that they're pretty much nothing but fake news? How are they not shut down yet? Who is still watching?

Please tell me you're not refering to Van Jones replying to "What do you think is going to happen this week with the whole Russia thing?" with "The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger."

I shouldn't have to point out how the video is cut/edited, and "the Russia thing" could be refering to a specific 'Russia thing' they were discuissing that was cut out, such as Trump's Tweet earlier that week about Obama's connection to Russia.
Nor should I have to point out that even if that weren't the case, there is a very real ongoing Russia investigation by FBI, that Muller took over, and that CNN constently report on. And a reporter can not know the legitimacy of it.

The dude who made the gif was a anti-semite racist. He deserves it. In fact he deserves more, it'd be best to just have him killed. His kind don't need to be around.

CNN was being dumb though. This bad publicity will ruin your image further, guys

Dude... What the fuck...



CNN just declared war on the internet.

I wouldn't be surprised if CNN staff start getting doxxed now.

If by "internet" you mean a small sub section of likely skinny and/or grossly obese dudes who probably couldn't get 15 feet within a vagina ... sure I guess?

You can defend a racist if you want. But they're, imo, less than people and as such lose their priviledge to things such as life. I suppose they could be used for medical testing, but anything less than that is not enough

You do realize calling for the mass killing of racists makes you sound as stupid as racists?

No I mean anyone who's ever anonymously posted shit about CNN or the larger MSM is now a target. 4Chan and the rest will have a field day. But I imagine gross dudes who can't get pussy probably have more time on their hands, so sure.

It was news because the PRESIDENT used the image. So the creator of the image was tracked down. To be honest as a journalistic principal since this is a news story (thanks to the President), CNN should've just basically revealed who the guy was. In many other contexts, the person would simply have their identity revealed on the news. They were under obligation to keep his identity secret, but they caved likely because he cried like a bitch on the phone. 

Which is fairly typical of people like him in reality. 

Trump of course WANTS to create the undemocratic narrative that there is a "war" between the "MSM" (meaning any media that Trump doesn't like, so Fox News convienantly doesn't count of course). Which is grossly irresponsible on the part of a president, no president should be engaging with the media in this way.

It's begun.

Oh and apparently what CNN did is a form of coercion in the US. Which is bad.
