Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
This story is developing. There’s word that the person that CNN had blackmailed (HanA**HoleSolo), is 15 years old, which makes this even more complicated for CNN. This is unconfirmed so far.
(Update: the person in question is not 15 yrs old. He’s 37)
Quick recap of events.
Angered by a parody Gif that showed a CNN logo superimposed onto a video clip of WWE CEO Vince McMahon, CNN scoured social media to dig up information on the person who created it.
As to the Gif creator’s personal info (name, address, and phone number), this was most likely acquired by hiring professional investigators, or by using Time Warner’s muscle to extract the IP Address from Reddit dot Com’s administrators, and then extracting the person’s account details from the ISP. A corporation going after a kid. That’s the state of affairs in the shark infested waters of corrupt media my friends.
This was the threat that CNN made.
This was on the front page of CNN about 6 to 10 hours ago.
Here’s CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski at first stating that CNN contacted the person, then changing it to “before we ever spoke to him.”
A congessman from Virginia has weighed in.
CNN may have violated NY Criminal Code S-135.60
CNN’s troubles are just starting. It’s now picking up steam on Twitter.
More to come as this story unfolds.
