In case you needed a reminder that CNN is a garbage network…

A year ago, CNN reporters went out of their way to track down the Redditor who created a gif that poked fun at CNN.

Not only did they track down HanA**holeSolo, the Reddit user behind the gif, CNN then bragged about doing so and threatened to dox him.

CNN then tried to have Trump kicked off of Twitter for tweeting the gif:

As Mike blogged last year, “Nice private life you’ve got there. Be a shame if something happened to it.”

I’ve almost forgotten what life was like when news conglomerates actually tended to the news business instead of threatening and maligning the private citizenry. But this is our brave new world.
