    CNN is fighting back after President Donald Trump tweeted a spoof video on Sunday showing him wrestling the network to the ground. On Sunday, network commentators described the video as a form of incitement; on Monday, the network reported that the video raised ďquestionsĒ about ďracism, bigotry, and violence Ö [and] antisemitism.Ē

    Appearing on The Lead, CNN correspondent Tom Foreman cited the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) ó a left-wing organization often critical of the Trump administration ó and its finding that the Reddit user who claimed to have created the wrestling video had posted offensive content in the past.

    Foreman noted that the White House had not revealed where it found the video, except to say that it was not on Reddit. (This author remembers seeing the video on Twitter before Trump tweeted it.)

    If I were those jokers I think I would shut up and start looking for work soon, they will all be gone the minute AT&T signs the check to purchase the network. I really don't see how any of them stay on the air since they don't get watched by at least 1/2 of the nation.

    It's gotten bad. Today they issued an official statement that held up almost a half hour before being torn apart by people remembering what they stated earlier. Total BS. Then started crying that they are the victims and not the kid they threatened to release his real name in personal info if he didn't do as he agreed. Then it went south.

    I would say a good portion of them will stay. Cooper is going no where. Alison is staying. But most of the other far left wingnuts will likely be encouraged in some fashion to go.

    It is a better tactic for dems to ignore things like the video.

    It is. But CNN knew they had President Trump on the Meme he tweeted. Not because it was inciting Violence. But because it was benieth his stature as President.

    Problem is, CNN tried to turn this minor mentioning into a full blown scandal and it blew up in their faces. Now no one is talking about the fact President Trump tweeted it. Now it's all about CNN blackmailing and threatening some kid who created it. And lying about what they did.

    Oh this is getting too good.

    Seems CNN attacked the wrong person. The kid never created the one President Trump tweeted, and there are differences.
