Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann was portrayed as some punk kid who was being racist to a Native American man who was just playing his little drum and chanting during a protest (actually there were many protests) going on in Washington, D.C.
In reality, Sandmann and the other students from Covington were there minding their own business when Nathan Phillips who is a known s**t starter shows up and gets in Sandmann's face.
The way the media spun the story was that the students were being racist jerks by being in his face smiling in an intimidating way. They completely smeared his name and he even received a number of threats because of it.
Now Cnn is having to eat their words because they just settled a lawsuit with Sandmann for an undisclosed amount.
According to the Daily Wire, Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann received reportedly has received a settlement from CNN after suing the far-left network for smearing him last year.
“CNN agreed Tuesday to settle a lawsuit with Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann,” Fox 19 reported. “The amount of the settlement was not made public during a hearing at the federal courthouse in Covington.”
Sandmann also filed lawsuits against The Washington Post and NBC Universal, each for $250 million or more, and is reportedly planning to “sue Gannett, owners of The Enquirer.”
Sandmann attorneys Todd McMurtry and Lin Wood filed a $275 million lawsuit against CNN in March of last year in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky.
“CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes,” Wood told Fox News’ Mark Levin last year. “CNN couldn’t resist the idea that here’s a guy with a young boy, that Make America Great Again cap on. So they go after him.”
The amount that was agreed upon is still unknown, but he definitely deserves a large settlement given all the slander that they spread through tv and the internet. They could have even put his life at risk given how violent liberals are today.
