CNN Jumps Into Bed With Al Jazeera

Reddit should be smelling a big rat by now.

The stench is coming from something even more putrid than Fake News Central CNN trying to hide under the rug on their blackmail attempts against the Reddit user behind the gif of President Trump wrestling a CNN image superimposed on WWE founder Vince McMahon.

“On 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.” (RealClearPolitics, July 5, 2017)

“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. 

“Don’t make a gif or CNN will tell on you!” Rubin tweeted.

HanAssholeSolo gets it: the God of Fake News has spoken from on high.

Have to wonder if the he/she/it behind the Hans handle is in real life, a CNN reporter?

In any case, what HanAssholdSolo supporters don’t seem to get is what CNN has been up to behind the headlines.

It’s called throwing up a smoke screen on the wrestling gif in order to escape being seen throwing in with their pals over Al Jazeera.

Over the holiday money.cnn.com, published a video showing Al Jazeera correspondents and anchors “demanding” media freedom, as a new deadline for Qatar to meet the demands looms on the horizon.

“Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt have called for Qatar to shut Al Jazeera. It’s one of 13 things they say Qatar must do before they’ll restore diplomatic and economic ties.” (CNN, July 3, 2017)

“To those who demand that Al Jazeera be shut down and that people’s right to the truth be suppressed, we too have demands. “We demand journalists be able to do their jobs free from intimidation and threat,” the network’s staff say in the video.”

Everyone other than HanAssholeSolo, we conclude.

“The journalists also insist that they should not be “treated as criminals” and that “diversity of thought and opinion be cherished, not feared. (CNN)

“The Arab countries cut ties with Qatar on June 5, accusing the Gulf state of supporting terrorism and destabilizing the region. Qatar, which shares its only land border with Saudi Arabia, has rejected the accusations, calling them “unjustified” and “baseless.”

“Qatar built Al Jazeera into a global brand. But the network has made enemies from Riyadh to Cairo with its criticism of Arab governments and coverage of deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsy (sic).

“Saudi Arabia and the UAE have accused Al Jazeera of acting as the mouthpiece for the Muslim Brotherhood, a group they have listed as a terrorist organization. Qatar denies this.

 


“UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Mohammed Gargash told CNN on Sunday that any future agreement with Qatar must be monitored by U.S. and European states to ensure Al Jazeera and others did not incite terrorism or extremism, and that terror groups were not aided politically by or from Qatar.

“It should come as no surprise to any that The United Nations weighed in on the issue on Friday, calling the demand to close the network “an unacceptable attack on the right to freedom.”

And get this little message sent out by Al Jazeera to news sites like Canada Free Press (CFP) this morning:

“We are living through difficult times in our profession. From the unprecedented call by some Arab governments to close Al Jazeera, to President Trump’s bizarre attack on CNN, the attacks on journalism and media are becoming much more vociferous and threatening.  Free media are under ambush all across the world, and as a result, lives of journalists and media professionals are more and more at risk.  It’s a scenario that at Al Jazeera, we have faced through the years with our reporters being imprisoned, tortured and killed for simply being professional journalists.  (See full release below)

“President Trump’s bizarre attack on CNN?”

How about CNN’s unending bizarre attacks on President Trump?

“As we are witnessing, the attacks on free media in the region, in the US and elsewhere, have taken on a new dimension and I think that with all the aspirations that we share as organizations committed to the freedom of media and freedom of speech as a basic human right, it would be timely to proactively stand together in solidarity to support free media. We have very recently launched a campaign demanding press freedom (#DemandPressFreedom) which you can see here http://bit.ly/2tJtauG.
 
“We would like for you to join us in a coordinated show of solidarity for media freedom everywhere across the world whether that is by lending support through amplifying the call through our hashtag, or through your own demands for press freedom.  We are here to work with you and we look forward to your thoughts and to your participation at this critical juncture in our profession.”

So the real story is that CNN, which has thrown in with Al Jazeera, is the new tag team that will be going after the POTUS full force.

Don’t wait for CNN to out you, HanAssholeSolo. Step forward if you’re for real and end the CNN Fake News game playing.

Call To Demand Press Freedom
#DemandPressFreedom

Dear colleague,

We are living through difficult times in our profession. From the unprecedented call by some Arab governments to close Al Jazeera, to President Trump’s bizarre attack on CNN, the attacks on journalism and media are becoming much more vociferous and threatening.  Free media are under ambush all across the world, and as a result, lives of journalists and media professionals are more and more at risk.  It’s a scenario that at Al Jazeera, we have faced through the years with our reporters being imprisoned, tortured and killed for simply being professional journalists.

As we are witnessing, the attacks on free media in the region, in the US and elsewhere, have taken on a new dimension and I think that with all the aspirations that we share as organizations committed to the freedom of media and freedom of speech as a basic human right, it would be timely to proactively stand together in solidarity to support free media. We have very recently launched a campaign demanding press freedom (#DemandPressFreedom) which you can see here http://bit.ly/2tJtauG.

We would like for you to join us in a coordinated show of solidarity for media freedom everywhere across the world whether that is by lending support through amplifying the call through our hashtag, or through your own demands for press freedom.  We are here to work with you and we look forward to your thoughts and to your participation at this critical juncture in our profession.
