Steyn: Wolf Blitzer 'Basically Put a Horse's Head' In CNN GIF Creator's Bed

Commentator Mark Steyn said CNN has gone off the deep end in their reaction to a GIF showing President Trump punching them in the face.

Steyn, a "Rush Limbaugh Show" sub-host, said it was ridiculous for the network to have researchers comb the internet to find the GIF creator's identity.

CNN forced the person to apologize and remove his content in exchange for the network keeping his identity secret.

"Why not figure out where [ISIS leader Abu Bakr] al-Baghdadi is?" Tucker Carlson asked.

"A major news organization is policing some no-name schlub's internet content and threatening to reveal his identity if he transgresses their particular standards," Steyn said.

"Wolf Blitzer has basically put a horse's head in this guy's bed," he added, referencing "The Godfather."

Steyn blasted anchor Chris Cuomo for a now-deleted tweet asking the public whether his network should reveal the GIF creator's identity.

"Should CNN reveal name of Reddit user who made trump wrestling video?" Cuomo, brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), wrote.

"Get lost you creeps," Steyn said of Cuomo and his coworkers.

He said the media who should really feel under threat are those who have been either killed or threatened as a result of their coverage of things like the Danish Mohammad cartoon.

What was the lie you referenced?. Essentially CNN was just made fun of and they couldn't take it.  Here you have a questionable news outlet, owned by a parent company that both have no problem supporting a play that essentially assinates Trump daily yet wants to threaten this private citizen, possibly a teen, with releasing their name and info to a deranged group of listeners who, some, would surely threaten this individual because they (CNN) claims the cartoon video might temp some to violence against the media.

And as for lying CNN (Counterfeit News Network) surely shouldn't concern themselves with that. Most All of the Trump stories they produce are knowingly false or baseless but are run hoping somehow they can harm Trump.

For the first time I have ever seen you have many major networks openly seeking and striving for the overthrow of a sitting, legally elected, President, all because of their hate for Trump. They should all lose their press credentials for they have ceased being a news organization and have become political opposition devoting most of their resources into the destruction of a sitting President.

Beside, with respect to the person who made the short video, on their own, who made CNN the arbitrator of the 1st Amendment? The maker of this CNN video short is some horrible person yet it's first Amendment protection and right for a play to show, or pretend, to assenate Trump nightly?

What CNN did was essentially build this unknown person up, with their platform, to be a bigot, Jew hater, evil person to the point if they revealed who he was he would surely be hunted down and be under threat of violence. The Soprano's would have been proud of such intimidation.
