The latest Twitter buzz centers around the Trump/CNN wrestling meme and the network is now threatening the 15-year-old creator with exposure unless he apologizes. If memory serves me correctly, threatening minors was against the law - not to mention publishing their identities unless they're being charged with a crime as an adult; therefore, has the network lost it's mind?
It would seem their Trump obsession is finally rearing up to bite them in the tush because their actions denote they've become absolutely unhinged. Threatening kids, creating Russian dressing stories, accosting press secretaries and the President has become mainstays for a network out of control.
Their claim is this 15-year-old is defaming them... with what? A 15 second clip? Whatever happened to that sticks & stones bit? Seems CNN's illustratoring their lack of 'tough' stock and opting to the crybaby approach, which further damages their credibility than any child could inflict.
Many Twitter people, including Liberals, have taken to photoshop and produced a cacophony of memes now that far exceed the original offense. Some comical while others not so much, CNN now has become the brunt of the joke - as if they weren't already in that target zone!
I guess we'll have to see how this all shakes out, but frankly, and I'm not speaking alone, it's getting a bit tedious and boring. CNN has made such a mockery of themselves, one can't help but imagine what a nuthouse it must be to work there. Has vodka laced KoolAid replaced their fancy designer water? This goes well beyond the traditional rough and tumble of political fodder and into a new realm altogether!
Fasten your seatbelts, kids, we're not even a whole year into this yet! Surely, it will be fascinating to observe as we watch the continual media meltdown.
You know it's bad when news organizations become the actual news! Kind of defeats their purpose, eh?
How say you?
