On Sunday, Matthew Harrigan, the President and CEO of PacketSled, Inc., posted specific threats to assassinate President-elect Donald Trump on Twitter and Facebook. The company's board placed Harrigan on administrative leave on Monday and announced his "resignation" very early Tuesday morning.
That a company CEO could do what Harrigan did has to be national news, right? Well, not yet. Searches on the company's name at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday morning at the Associated Press's main national site, its Big Story site, and at the New York Times returned no results, even though the tweets involved occurred about 1-1/2 days ago. And where are the lamentations about the "climate of hate" which might have brought such a person to do something so completely unhinged?
