The Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann who was falsely portrayed by various news outlets, is suing the Washington Post and CNN for over $250 million… EACH.
On Wednesday, the law firm representing Sandmann, L. Lin Wood, P.C. released a video about the “reckless lies” that the two news outlets promoted.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported on the situation:
This week, Sandmann’s legal team filed a $275 million lawsuit against CNN for the false attacks the leftist news network made against Sandmann in January. One of Sandmann’s attorneys, Todd McMurtry, appeared on Fox News on Tuesday where he said: “It is a significant lawsuit seeking $75 million in compensatory damages and $200 million in punitive damages from CNN.”
In a surprising decision, the law firm released a video that highlights the dangers of reporting false narratives that divide our society even more.
The video began by saying, “Last January, 16-year-old Nicholas Sandmann was falsely targeted, attacked, vilified, and threatened. The Washington Post, owned by the richest man in the world, led the print media’s false attacks against Nicholas’ reputation. CNN led the broadcast media’s charge against Nicholas. Both recklessly spread lies about a minor to advance their own financial and political agendas.”
“Despite raw video debunking the false narrative, the Post and CNN doubled down on their reckless lies,” the video continues. “Lies that will forever haunt and endanger the life of an innocent young man. Lies that further divided our nation.”
“How long will we allow these media giants to tear at the fabric of our lives to further their own agendas? Will they ever be held accountable? Yes, they will,” the video adds. “Nicholas Sandman has taken a stand for himself and for you by filing major lawsuits against CNN and the Washington Post. Nicholas and his legal team will not be stopped until these Goliath corporations are held accountable for their lack of journalistic integrity. Until then, no one’s reputation is safe.”
Anyone who watched the full video of Sandmann standing in front of the Native American man would realize that the high school boy did nothing wrong.
At one point, he even told his friends to not harass the man. He’s truly a good kid!
The media tried to create the narrative that Sandmann and his friends confronted Nathan Phillips, the Native American man, and then surrounded him so they could make fun of him.
Full footage showed that Phillips was actually the one who confronted the boys, not the other way around.
The media who knew this to be true, decided to promote chopped up footage to create a narrative which was “these white racist Trump supporters surrounded and are making fun of this poor native American man.”
It’s good to see someone holding the Fake News Media accountable considering their actions not only portrayed a false narrative, but they also caused a lot of unneeded division in our country. The truth will ALWAYS prevail!
