CNN is celebrating its controversial decision to bully an anonymous Internet user into apologizing for creating an anti-CNN meme.

New Day's Alisyn Camerota called the network's reporting "remarkable."

"Something remarkable I thought happened yesterday," Camerota said Wednesday morning. "I thought it was remarkable that CNN found the Reddit user who created the gif of Donald Trump and the wrestling video and where he punches CNN, so the investigative team went back and found the guy who created this, he took credit for it, and here comes the remarkable part -- he apologized!"

"He apologized for having done this," she continued. "How often do you hear someone who creates a video that goes viral, then say this, this is what he told CNN, I would like to apologize for the posts made that were racist, bigoted and anti-semitic, other posts on his account?" 

CNN's Chris Cuomo and Chris Cillizza agreed with Camerota. 

“It was certainly not the outcome I would have thought once we tracked him down, and I think it’s actually a nice thing,” Cillizza said.
