Skip to comments.Ted Cruz: CNN May Have Broken Georgia Law
Posted on 07/05/2017 9:33:58 AM PDT by Helicondelta
According to Senator Ted Cruz, CNNs threats to dox the Reddit user who created the Trump wrestling CNN video could be a violation of Georgia law.
CNN discovered the identity of the Reddit user who made the video and essentially threatened to reveal his identity if he continued to post unsavory content.
Cruz said if CNN tracked down the Reddit user through his IP address and then used that information to threaten him, they could be in violation of a Georgia law.
CNN headquarters are located in Atlanta, GA.
The GA Code explains that someone could be guilty of Theft by extortion if they threaten to disseminate any information tending to subject any person to hatred, contempt, or ridicule or to impair his credit or business repute.

It wasn’t “unsavory”, it was an animated political cartoon.
CNN has a problem.
CNN had a choice: Shrug-off the video, or behave like ham-fisted a-holes. Now, they suffer the consequences of their choice.
May have? read the statement, they go way beyond just breaking the law..that statement alone(Without the bottom line about releasing his name) screams of something you would see in North Korea “He promised never to do it again” seriously..what country have we become..If I knew how to make gifs I would make one of CNN getting punched in the face repeatedly, come after me CNN I dare you
I’m listening to Alyson Camorata brag about this (on tape on Rush). These CNN puerile are evil. They sure as hell aren’t “news” people. There was absolutely nothing wrong with that video. It was a joke political cartoon and protected speech.
Just heard the Alyson clip on Rush, too. Shameful! Bragging about CNN successfully blackmailing an American citizen.
Looks like Communist News Network is getting a bunch of “negative covfefe” ...
CNN is history, and all that they do will accelerate their approaching demise.
Keep the hate coming CNN!

I feel like I missed something. I never got to see this wrestling video. Real news seems passé now. All the worlds attention is on virtual events.
Boston ANTIFA: CNN Finally Uses Antifa Tactics to Fight Trump Supporters
(Now there’s an endorsement you don’t want.)
One can only hope that CNN broke the law. Looks like blackmail to me.
Maybe CNN doesn’t know who the person is and is lying.
