How did CNN locate the meme creator?
« on: July 05, 2017, 12:19:36 PM »
I haven't seen anything that tells us how CNN obtained the information about the Reddit user.  Does anyone know how they did?  Was Reddit complicit?  How did they get the information?

Ted is already bitch slapping CNN.  Looks like they're in a little pickle now: http://therightscoop.com/ted-cruz-cnn-may-have-just-committed-a-crime/

I saw this after I posted this (CPF) thread: http://therightscoop.com/turns-out-cnn-may-have-targeted-the-wrong-guy/

This is where I was going... not only was I curious if Reddit was complicit, but how do they know if they got the right guy?

turns out that CNN may have targeted the wrong guy in the Trump wrestling tweet mania scandalgate!

Buzzfeed unpacks this whole thing with screenshots galore, pointing out that HanA**holeSolo’s original gif was actually a different size, crop, and was completely soundless. In fact it was a gif, not the video that Trump tweeted.

No idea but we also have to ask "why"? Scary stuff. They're acting like Soviet era state media.
