Like a little bitch.
Goodness, this sure is a lot of tweets just for one little issue. Andrew Kaczynski's Twitter timeline usually has one post per issue. Up to now by his Twitter, he's come off as somewhat sane, passably balanced.
It means Andrew Kaczynski feels he has a lot of explaining to do. And that's not so easy in 140 characters and less. He's spinning his wheels off denying CNN ever threatened where clearly they did. He's distorting the sequence of events. He is lying about the Reddit editor. (Admittedly an unsavory fellow, but so what.)
He's dragged CNN down to a new low even lower than than the previous low. And all it took was a simple and amusing animated GIF of the sort that every person in the news experiences.
One can probably conclude Trump is genius at media manipulation but that cannot happen without CNNs perverse obsession. To spend more than fifteen seconds on this is too much time for CNN but they made it an issue then dwelt on the issue they created obnoxiously long and perversely in depth. And now just look at Andrew Kaczynski spinning and lying to dissuade his followers not to believe what they read for themselves and convince them they misunderstand plain simple language. CNN threatened to dox the Reddit user, they did that to scare off any future satirists, and there is no taking that back. Sorry, Chump, you're busted. Now expect a lot more of the same.
Let's see what the 4chan.org flying monkeys are up to. Seems they're interested in making new memes. They're discussing not using old memes like anything with "gate" in it, that meme is old and busted. They need something new. But so far it appears they haven't taken it further than that.
It's an odd site. Old School scripting. Like Twitter the beginning of the discussion is at bottom. There are some amusing GIFs mostly bearing on violence with similar face overlays and CNN logo overlays. They're deciding on changing CNN logo to gray and white indicating all life is drained from it. They're completely against this attack on free speech.
Here's how to find the political discussions on 4chan.
The address is 4chan.org and NOT 4chan.com which is dedicated to porn. There is nothing about politics in the menu on 4chan.org front page. Click on anything innocent. The next page to come up offers a different menu at both top and bottom. They're address extensions arranged alphabetically. Select "pol" from the menu that appears on each page except home. The address in the browser bar is http://boards.4chan.org/pol/. Other political issues are on the same board. Scroll down until you see CNN. Click on the stagnate photos in the sequence of posts. Over half of them enlarge to rudimentary animated GIFs. Most are amusingly childishly violent as the first one from Reddit retweeted by Trump. Drawn from video games and entertainment wrestling. It's all kid's stuff with a few discussing the seriousness of the trouble that Andrew Kaczynski cooked up for himself aiming at Trump, and the depth that CNN has sunk themselves by their determination to make themselves into resistance and propaganda posing as news.
4chan.org is cute.
You know, 4chan could really use a few better animators. Their skill level is rather slapdash, I must say. All of the GIFs shown can be made in five minutes or less. B3ta, children themselves, mock 4chan's childishness daily. Where Americans are impressed with 4chan tracking down Sia LaBeouf by mere photos of contrails and patterns on wood and a flagpole.
This episode is not going to end well. I don't know. I assume trust will be hard or impossible to win back once it is shot so ridiculously this way and with such mean spirit toward everyone, even their own viewers. Meanwhile Trump persists with his own priorities while knocking out the occasional displeasing tweet that takes him a whole ten seconds at most and that sends CNN into desperate flights that consume them for weeks and diminish their influence each time. And they take the bait reliably every single time, Trump knows they cannot resist him, they're honestly thinking they've got him this time. Every time. Just look at Andrew Kaczynski squirm.
The remarkable thing is Andrew Kaczynski is actually quite a smart fellow. I followed him when I was on Twitter because he is interesting. Was interesting. This shows how hardcore partisanship makes smart people frustratingly dumb. Well, that just too bad.
