You might not remember Nick Sandmann. He was just a high school kid who took a trip to Washington, D.C. a few years ago.
While visiting some of our nation’s monuments, he and his friends were confronted by a group of “woke” activists. One man got in Nick’s face, banging a drum and screaming at him.
The media quickly misrepresented the footage, making Nick out to be some kind of instigator. Why? Because he was wearing a red MAGA hat.
The full story came out later, proving he did nothing wrong.
Thanks to the press, the young man received death threats and faced other problems. As a result, he sued numerous outlets.
Now, on his 18th birthday, he just got a great present:
The Washington Post is the latest news organization to settle a defamation lawsuit launched by Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann over its botched coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder that had portrayed the Kentucky teen as the aggressor.
Nearly every left-leaning MSM outlet covered Nick’s story. Their angle portrayed the young man as some kind of racist, ring-wing agitator who was trying to provoke a group of “innocent” minorities.
This fake news account spread like wildfire online. Nick was ostracized and attacked. He faced being “canceled” before he could graduate high school.
The real story revealed that he attended the March for Life conference and was visiting a few landmarks with friends, awaiting their bus. A group of left-wing activists, joined by Nathan Phillips—another left-wing advocate—insulted and cursed at Nick because of his MAGA hat.
The entire event how ugly the liberal media can become–in their crusade to slander Trump supporters.
These liberal-leaning companies were quick to slander Nick Sandmann, before getting the story right.
Because he wore a Trump hat, they all-too eagerly threw him under the bus.
Sandmann sued several outlets over the reports, accusing them of libel. He and his lawyer previously settled with CNN for an undisclosed amount.
Now, the second major news outlet has been forced to settle with Nick—instead of facing a public and disgracing trial.
Nick tweeted out “6 to go,” suggesting that at least six more news outlets are facing the consequences of their attacks.
How they choose to act remains to be seen. But, considering both CNN and WAPO caved, it is likely all the others will as well.
- Washington Post recently settled their $250 million lawsuit with Nick Sandmann.
- WAPO was one of many outlets sued by Sandmann’s lawyer over libel coverage.
- Mainstream media portrayed Sandmann in a negative light—misrepresenting a confrontation several years ago.
