Twitter Flips Out Over Reports About DOJ Demanding CNN Sale: ‘WHHAAAT’

Media Twitter went into overdrive on Wednesday in response to the reports suggesting that the Trump Administration might be trying to meddle with the AT&T-Time Warner merger deal in order to punish CNN.

Multiple news sources indicate that the Department of Justice has told AT&T that they will not approve their deal until CNN is sold off. Donald Trump frequently rails against the network, and even though there isn’t any sign of his direct intervention in this matter, the DOJ’s statement raises questions about whether this has anything to do with how fiercely the president despises CNN’s coverage.

Of course, the news prompted the expected reactions of shock, jokes, and general outrage about the supposed abuse of power taking place.

Not everyone on Twitter is freaking out, though:
