CH, thanks for the book tip on "the Great Upheaval".

Ordered a copy for Mrs. Buckeye this morning.

Beasts,

That is a great one!

Stephn Molnyeuz makes the point that CNN thought they were going after one little person, when in fact they went after all of us.

Apparently they were being smug on air this morning, so there will likely be another wave of memes and efforts to go after them.

By the way, where's the ACLU's comment on this? (crickets)

It is spreading beyond CNN.

A comment from The_Donald site:

[–]Malformed1 1 point 4 minutes ago

The can of worms has been opened. We are all /u/HanAssholeSolo. It could have happened to any one of us, and still could. CNN has clearly delineated themselves from the interests of the People. They're willing to destroy private citizens simply to gain revenge.

Now the CNN memes will blog out the sun. They set forth something into motion that cannot be stopped. They have clearly marked themselves as the Enemy of the American People, just like Trump said they were.

Trump was right again, and he played CNN like a fucking FIDDLE.

henry,

I saw that but didn't know if the conspiracy thing was highlighted.

There are 4 people in the panel on CNN discussing this this morning. They apparently were all smug and self-righteous. Seems to me that those people, by affirming CNN's action, are participating in the conspiracy to deny the Reddit guy his rights.

Boy, would I like to see Alisyn Camerata in court. That woman has annoyed me since she was on Fox, and I was very happy to see her leave. I find it hilarious that she now wears those Marie Harf "smart" glasses, because she is as dumb as a box of rocks.

thanks sbw. I am the researcher in the family. Sometimes he looks to me for advice, but mostly he finds it annoying. Usually I wait to be asked, but am ready if asked. My husband and kids are far more comfortable with the "walking dictionary" than my siblings are. My mom learned to like it only in my middle age when it kept proving so useful.

NYT 10-15-16: "Andrew Kaczynski, the 26-year-old reporter who dug up evidence showing that Donald J. Trump had supported the invasion of Iraq before the war, was Google-chatting with Tim Miller, a Republican operative who was the communications director for the Jeb Bush presidential campaign. This was last July, when Mr. Kaczynski was still at BuzzFeed. ...In the conversation, Mr. Miller said CNN could use someone like Mr. Kaczynski, especially given how difficult it was to fact-check the loose-lipped Republican nominee. ...“LOL,” Mr. Kaczynski replied. But the notion wasn’t so laughable after all. A month before the election, CNN hired Mr. Kaczynski and three of his colleagues, Kyle Blaine, Nathan McDermott and Christopher Massie.
... On Oct. 4, he went to work at CNN."

I bet Tim Miller was also among those pushing the dodgy dossier.

Beasts of England

lol, Steph!!

Trump should tweet a fake Time Magazine cover with a pic of him beating up a CNN head.

What's the over/under on when Kaczynski comes out and says "he broke me"?

After the Scalise et al shooting, Republicans should be very wary of appearing at open air events where security cannot be guaranteed imo. There's no expectation they volunteer to be sitting ducks.

narciso,

Lots of lefties are trying to say that this isn't suppression of free speech because it isn't the government.

I do think that the parallel to this is the Klan in the 1950's and 60's, intimidating to suppress free speech and voting rights.

What's the result when Trump-hating CNN must report the Trumps going to Poland and Germany, but they attempt to minimize the trip and them as much as possible?

The Infamous Ignatz

It of course wasn't suppression of free speech as the commies say, although they have made the same claim in reverse thousands of times.
But it is a gigantic informational and entertainment corporation attacking and bullying a private citizen for no apparent reason other than him making fun of them through information and entertainment.
If there was a legal issue involved one would assume they'd have a lawyer contact the guy not some a-hole reporter.

And of course anarcho-syndicalist Ben who just hates him some hypocrisy c&ps a blurb defending gigantic bully CNN while a short time later wimpering that he is Spartacus HanAssholeSolo.
He is one third correct, which is better than his usual batting average.

So we only know of this one incident but apparently, this jerk has been at CNN since October. Wondering what else he has done - who else he has threatened or bullied?

It appears to be his MO from former jobs and perhaps even WHY CNN hired him in the first place.

“because he is a private citizen who has issued an extensive statement of apology, showed his remorse by saying he has taken down all his offending posts, and because he said he is not going to repeat this ugly behavior on social media again.”

Was listening to Bartiromo (substitute?) in the car on the way to work this AM. One of her talking heads suggested Trump would have been better off to pursue the hard line with China he had proposed before election.

The pundit obviously didn’t recognize that had Trump done so, media pundits would have excoriated him for not “negotiating” with China.

Having established that China won’t rein in North Korea, Trump can now pursue pushing a line that strengthens Japan and South Korean defenses, much to China’s chagrin because China wants to be the only military power in the region.

Trump can pursue sanctions to the hilt. He can use the U.N. to either respond with sanctions or show Chinese/Russian unwillingness to do so.

--
The coffee clatch also wrongly dissed Trump’s visit to Poland -- a visit that tells Putin point blank that European defense, including energy independence from Russia, is on the chessboard. Putin knows, even if pundits don’t.

Trump won’t give in now to China/Russia calls today to bargain away the defense of South Korea and Japan. Trump doesn’t have to. He is free to ratchet up military defense and economic sanctions.

Well done, and nobody is pushing for war.

Captain Hate,

I don't remember that but then I got here later than a lot of others.

My opinion on this is that I will simply SOB or hit KillFile. Any action taken must be left up to the owner of the site.

I would point out that when I got banned at the Ewok's site I never felt my free speech rights were violated. It was a crappy thing to do, but he owns the site.

sbw, RG,

Regardless of bias, I have really come to believe that most TV pundits are not strategic thinkers at all. This is an example of that.

I so miss Dennis Miller's program, because he would at least have guests with some depth of policy knowledge and critical thinking skills. Also old friends from the comedy circuit. Often in the same show, like the day he had on some pal of his and then interviewed Henrey Kissinger. (Even he thought that was a little bizarre.)

Apples/oranges. HanAssholeSolo was not hacking his way onto CNN where he wasn't wanted, he was making fun of them elsewhere.

He put you in the sidebar briefly and I called him out on it as a really lowlife thing to do, shortly after which he took it down. Yes he owns the site but that doesn't excuse bad behavior. For whatever reason he's been a lot better recently but I doubt that I'll ever not regard him with at least a tiny bit of skepticism.

sbw, what am I missing that makes it a distinctive difference? That it was all contained here and wasn't someone going off to nail someone with whom he had no previous interactions? I guess so, but I teed off on Maybee for flouncing off because of it and now am having a different perspective on why she did it

rse

"Thanks for throwing me that softball in a way because I did write a book about that. It's basically just a misunderstanding of how markets work. You can't have markets without government. So, asking government to get out of the way so business can do its job is kind of nonsensical. You can't actually have business without government. You can have property. They all depend of government, basically. Warren Zevon had the song, to have markets you need "lawyers, guns and money." You have a government that's involved in every step of the way. It's not only a referee for fair play, but it also lays out the playing field and decides what the goals are and where the lines are, and on and on and on. These are all public choices. We often miss what government is doing in the areas that it does it so well, we just don't think about it. Property rights, they actually work relatively well, most of the time, so we don't really think about the fact that these were all based on laws that say who owns what, how you own it, what happens when someone else says you own something. A lot of physical infrastructure that we depend on goes back to government and, again, we just don't tend to think about it when it works well."
