And they wonder why people don't like or trust them...

In an article identifying the originating source of the wrestling gif tweeted last week by President Donald Trump, CNN says they’ll keep his name private so long as the person remains compliant to the media thought police.

The direct threat is: “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”

That would be a direct threat by CNN to dox the identity of a private individual if the citizen refuses to remain apologetic and compliant to the ideological dictates of the corporate CNN’s media outlook.
Bastards.  Miserable excuses for reporters.

From the CSGV-Bloomberg-Mommies Want-approved city of Chicago,
Dozens of people were struck by gunfire in Chicago, some of them fatally, during the traditionally violent Fourth of July weekend, mostly in parts of the South and West sides that have long been plagued by gang crime and gun violence

From Friday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon, about 60 people were shot with eight of them killed, according to data kept by the Tribune.

Speaking of Chicago, remember the Very Special Agent and the stolen car?
 Update to our elite federal agent:
thanks to a dumb-ass FBI agent, the offender now has a Chevy Equinox, a M4, a Glock 17, a Glock 22, a Glock 27, 2 vests, full tank of gas...

I like his description of the agents: A bunch of armed accountants running around playing police

It doesn't need correcting.

In your country, people who criticize the government can be arrested and sent to "re-education" camps. But over here, if government agents started trying to do stuff like that, they'd likely get blown full of holes by pissed off Americans with guns.

So our guns protect our freedom of speech.

I can criticize my government if I want to. I can say "Donald Trump is a corrupt pompous ass and his cabinet is full of lickspittles and toadies."

Or I can criticize the Chinese government if I want to. I can say, "Xi Jinping heads an evil government that oppresses the rights of Chinese citizens while the Party lackeys grow rich from corruption."

Now you try. Go on, post something critical about the Chinese government.

Of course, they might be watching

I'm a recent post of my own I referred to them as "media mafia".

Seems I was spot on now that they have officially gone into the extortion racket.

Seems to cover it pretty well.

To some extent all the major media has lost its gatekeeper privilege, and they really don't like it.
