Anonymous Threatens To Hit CNN With Distributed Denial of Service Attack During CNN Debate Thursday Night

A video uploaded to YouTube by someone claiming to be a member of the online "hacktivist" group Anonymous and a supporter of Ron Paul is threatening a unique Distributed Denial of Service attack on CNN's live stream of its debate that will only operate while Ron Paul's GOP opponents are speaking, but cease during Ron Paul's answers:

"In response to the establishment media blackout of Ron Paul, and specifically to the lack of equal time given to him during the debates, we the people will be blacking out the responses of all candidates except Ron Paul in the upcoming CNN debate in Jacksonville, Florida on Thursday January 26th at 8 PM Eastern Standard Time."

You can watch the entire video below:

Great background music, btw.

Unfortunately if this ends up happening at CNN's debate tonight, it won't bring positive press coverage to Ron Paul's campaign. It'll just feed into the media narrative about the extreme, fringe, "kookiness" of Ron Paul and his supporters.
