CNN threatened to dox some poor shlub unless he groveled and silenced himself for joking about it. Brandon Morse shows how to apologize to CNN.

"Inducing some random meme-making troll to grovel and apologize for his wrongthink isn't journalism."

.@TheBrandonMorse would like to make an apology that is not forced in any way.



More on this as well as the meaning of "Dox". It means much, much more than just giving the name of the person being threatened:
"Dox, or being doxed, in terms of online forum sites, is the physical equivalent of being butt-raped irl. Just as all the greats have, when a person is "doxed", all their personal information is made available for all users to see. Names, addresses, phone numbers and school/work are not spared, and this usually leads to the person ceasing all ties with said websites, if not the interwebs as a whole." Urban Dictionary

What CNN’s Threat To Dox A Redditor Tells Us About The State Of Journalism
"No, this isn’t a First Amendment issue. Just because one of the nation’s most powerful journalistic institutions has the power to track down and ruin the lives of random Reddit users doesn’t mean it should. Just because it can coerce apologies, implicitly or explicitly, doesn’t mean it should, either. At the very least, it’s an abuse of its power and a waste of its resources."
