CNN Promised Not To Identify Pro-Trump Reddit User If He Apologized

420246On Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s New Day, hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota addressed the apology the network was able to get from the Reddit user behind the gif of President Trump wrestling a CNN image superimposed on WWE founder Vince McMahon. Trump tweeted out the gif and received widespread condemnation from the mainstream media.

“Something remarkable I thought happened yesterday, I thought it was remarkable that CNN found the Reddit user who created the gif of Donald Trump and the wrestling video and where he punches CNN, so the investigative team went back and found the guy who first created this he took credit for it, and then here comes the remarkable part, he apologized. He apologized for having done this,” Camerota said.

“This is a very full-throated I think genuine honest apology. He has also asked we not reveal his name or whereabouts and we at CNN are honoring that,” the co-host also said.

Notably, CNN decided not to reveal the identity of the Reddit user, HanAssholeSolo, if he issued an apology and promised not to continue publishing racist material. Some political commenters are calling the move by the CNN investigative team extortion. Donald Trump Jr. retweeted Dave Rubin’s accusation that CNN extorted a private citizen for legal behavior.

    “…promised not to continue publishing racist material.” Will CNN make the same promise? Will CNN end their era of hate towards the Administration and President? Will their on air “talent” quit comparing the President to Hitler and making ignorant comments about how he is “mentally ill”? I would bet the President would leave them alone if they would report facts and quit trying to intimidate and delegitimize he election win

    The only reason CNN is not letting it be known who this person is, is because they are a Progressive liberal who did this with the intent to do harm to President Trump, but President Trump turned it around on them.

    How is this racist? I guess kathy gifford is the only one allowed to ‘joke’ nowadays.

  • Nana Monster

    It’s pretty sad that these wimps are taken back by a 10 yr old photo of Trump and their stupid logo on the guys face. Geez, it’s almost as bad as Obama getting a rodeo clown fired for wearing an Obama mask during a rodeo…Soooooo offensive….LOL

  • kbfallon

    So what they release his name…..???? Next – an account can be set up in his honor for donations to him as a reward for his work. I will donate!

    So the always “brilliant” Camerota claims victory for an apology that has been coerced with the threat of exposure. Wow, CNN, what a coup. John Gotti and “The Godfather” would be proud. Hey, Morning Joe. What do you think about the THUGGISH behavior by CNN? Oh, I see Joe and Mika. Crickets. One just has to look at that picture above that shows the true essence of CNN’s morning hosts Camerota and Cuomo. Camerota seems to go through life in a perpetually anguished state and Cuomo looks like he hasn’t taken a good crap in weeks.

    I believe the guy that they told they would identify if he did again show an anti-Trump piece, could retire on what he could sue them for, and his lawyer, too.

    Blackmail is a pretty serious crime if CNN decides to go through with it and would cause a lot of arrests to happen.

    Also how is it CNN can find a Reddit user who is I’m assuming a private citizen, but all our nations BEST law enforcement can’t find a treasonous leaker in the Gov. When there was only seven people in some of these ‘secure’ meetings ?

  • TPhantom1

    CNN has done the damage to itself and continues to bury itself as a legitimate news network. Well to be honest they did have a lot of help from a presidential candidate in the past election who it would appear was in collusion with them and their campaigning for her….Both are dead subjects to me at this point but I’m amazed anyone watches or pays any attention to CNN or the losers of the election. They both are history as far as any credibility goes and any attention to either is just furthering their adjenda of spreading lies.

      “NEVER TRUST” CNN aka TNN (Trump News Network)…There’s not a day that does no go by without CNN bashing Donald Trump…So far the American Public has heard little or nothing from CNN about the state of our economy…about jobs…about infrastructure…or anything else involving this country that we as citizens should know or be concerned about…We are not concerned about Donald Trump tweets nor hearing any more about the “fake” Russian/Trump collusion narrative which has been proven time and time over to be “false” reported…Somehow CNN just can’t make it out of their own little rabbit hole.

  • TPhantom1

    How is that post ‘racist’ ????????? I mean really ?

  • Rock

    CNN no longer exists in my home…. NBC, CBS and ABC are right there with CNN …. Dem/lib owned/bough and paid for… You hear more truth in a first grade classroom, the kids can’t be bought off like these news (the term “news” associated with these stations is a misleading term, it should be “scripted”) stations.

      Lock up the leaders and shut them down for their anti USA behavior with fake hews .

  • David Stovall

    Possibly a felony of both state & federal law by CNN. Deprivation of rights by extortion.

    • TPhantom1

      ‘Possibly’ being the key word here, as obviously law only applies to the middle and lower income folks…..corporations and political personnel are above that bothersome restrictive legistration .
