Kirsten Powers throws out legal history to deny free speech to those who stay anonymous.

You would never know, if you listen to CNN’s Kirsten Powers, that many Founding Fathers wrote under fake names. The Federalist Papers themselves were written in such a manner.

Ms. Powers fired off a series of tweets Thursday defending her network’s decision to threaten to expose the anonymous Reddit user behind the now-famous President Trump-CNN wrestling meme.
