CNN is desperate to denigrate conservatives and anyone supportive of President Trump. It's obvious. They know what they are doing. And they know that we know what they are doing. That works to defang them, but only by a small amount.
It's unlikely their reporters would steal candy from babies in strollers wearing Trump tee shirts. On the other hand, they seem to have no problem harassing senior citizens who support Trump.
A private citizen received online abuse after CNN tracked her down and publicly shamed her for unknowingly sharing a “Russian-coordinated event” on her Facebook page.
While filming the woman, who runs a pro-Trump page on Facebook, CNN publicly shamed her for “unwittingly” promoting a “Russian-coordinated event.”
Even if she did, and did so “unwittingly” as CNN claims, there is some real irony here. Isn't CNN accusing her of the same unfortunate “error” CNN made? Didn't CNN get duped by the now discredited Russian dossier? And should we not believe that CNN has substantially more resources at its command to vet alleged facts than this woman does?
It takes a lot of gall for CNN to go after his woman. Let's have a look:

“When you’re talking like this, I don’t want anything to do with you,” complained the woman after being repeatedly harassed by CNN’s Special Investigations Unit Reporter Drew Griffin.
Following the incident, conservative commentators criticized CNN for tracking down and attempting to publicly shame private citizens.
At this point, we can turn to the talented and indomitable Mark Dice to help sort this out.
What else can be said about CNN? “Fake News.” “Ministry of Left-Wing Propaganda.” Those fit.
What does not fit is “Talented and Unbiased Professional Journalism.” And that's too bad. An organization that size could actually do some good. But first, it would have to crawl out of the swamp. And that seems very unlikely.
It’s on her. She didn’t have to do an interview.
