We have heard from several people today looking to dump CNN after news broke yesterday that CNN appeared to threaten to dox the anonymous creator of a tongue in cheek meme that satirized CNN’s never ending battle with President Trump.
CNN issued a statement with what appears to be a retaliation threat towards the meme creator if he makes another meme mocking the multi-billion dollar company:
CNN is not publishing “HanA**holeSolo’s” name 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. In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.
CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.
People cut the cord for various reasons, to save money, avoid ads, watch on demand, and now it looks like for some we can ad avoiding CNN. So what are your choices if you want to keep live TV and to avoid paying for CNN? The answer is not a lot but there are some.
