Nick Sandmann was the Covington Catholic student at the center of that completely RIDICULOUS firestorm. MSM jumped on the story and refused to back down and apologize, even after it was clear they got it all wrong.
As a result, Sandmann lawyered up and filed a huge lawsuit against the Washington Post. We’re talking $250 million.
They warned that other lawsuits were on the way, and boy were they right. Next up? CNN. Sandmann has slapped ’em with a $275 million lawsuit.
The suit charges that CNN “has maintained a well-known and easily documented biased agenda against President Trump and established a history of impugning individuals perceived to be supporters of the president.” This is significant, because his lawyers are alleging that CNN targeted Sandmann simply because he was “wearing a souvenir Make America Great Again cap.” For seven days in January, says the lawsuit, CNN “brought down the full force of its corporate power, influence, and wealth on Nicholas by falsely attacking, vilifying, and bullying him despite the fact that he was a minor child.”
The lawsuit accuses CNN of at least four defamatory TV broadcasts and nine defamatory online articles falsely accusing Sandmann and his fellow students of “engaging in racist conduct by instigating a threatening confrontation with several African American men (‘the Black Hebrew Israelites’) and subsequently instigating a threatening confrontation with Native Americans who were in the midst of prayer.”
Moreover, CNN asserted, that Sandmann and his fellow students displayed a “racis[t] mob mentality” and “looked like they were going to lynch” the Black Hebrew Israelites who were merely “preaching about the Bible nearby” because “they didn’t like the color of their skin” and “their religious views.”
The lawsuit asks for $75 million dollars in compensatory damages and $200 million in punitive damages to “deter CNN from ever again engaging in false, reckless, malicious, and agenda-driven attacks against children in violation of well-recognized journalist standards and ethics.”
They’re still not done, either. Word has it the AP, NBC and HBO are next.
I’m just gonna leave this here.
“Will they ever be held accountable? Yes. They will.”
