Obviously, CNN has made the mystery Reddit user an offer he cannot refuse. This has earned them the new moniker as The Corleone Network. Somehow he was compelled to never, ever do that again, take down offending posts, and offer profuse apologies to the network. This clear attempt at intimidation and blackmail does service to the memory of the Godfather Corleone. In my mind’s eye, I can see it going down. Now read this and see if you can visualize it.

Never mind that at least five CNN employees, including Reza Aslan and Kathy Griffith, have been fired due to either errors in reporting or overt bias against the President of the United States.
CNN’s credibility no longer exists because its executives, producers, anchors, producers and the vast majority of their guest commentators, have openly embarked on a campaign to undercut and damage the Presidency of Donald Trump at any cost. In doing so it, as well as other media outlets, have become key-but-overlooked cogs in the……
