Libs said he wouldn't have a chance!

CNN on Tuesday settled a defamation lawsuit filed by Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann over its botched coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder that had portrayed the Kentucky teen as the aggressor.

Fox 19 first reported that CNN settled with Sandmann for an undisclosed amount. The $250 million defamation suit sought damages for the "emotional distress Nicholas and his family suffered" in the fallout of the network's reporting.

A lawyer for Sandmann declined to comment on the settlement but confirmed to Fox News that lawsuits against The Washington Post and NBC were ongoing. Fox 19 also reported that Sandmann attorney L. Lin Wood told the judge they planned to sue media company Gannett, the publisher of the Cincinnati Enquirer among other newspapers, within 60 days. Gannett did not immediately comment either.

Last March, Sandmann's attorneys filed a suit against CNN for its coverage of the incident before all the facts had surfaced. The teen was seeking a whopping $800 million in damages from all three news outlets.

Sandmann was swept up in a controversy after a video clip depicted the "MAGA" hat-wearing student smiling at Nathan Phillips beating a drum and singing a chant as he was surrounded by Sandmann's peers, who all had joined in on the chant in front of the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

 

However, several mainstream media outlets, including CNN, portrayed the incident with Sandmann and the other teens as being racially charged before it was discovered by additional footage that a group of Black Hebrew Israelites had provoked the confrontation by slinging racial slurs at the students as they were waiting for their bus following last year's March For Life event in Washington D.C. Footage then showed Phillips, who was in town for the Indigenous Peoples March, approaching the students amid the rising tension between the two groups.

Neither CNN nor NBC commented; a Post spokesperson previously said, "While we do not accept the characterizations and contentions regarding our reporting of the incident at the Lincoln Memorial, we have taken steps to address the concerns expressed to us. The full story did not emerge all at once and throughout our coverage, we sought to produce accurate reports. Even the comments of the school and church officials changed, and The Post provided ongoing coverage of the conflicting versions of this event and its aftermath, giving prominent attention to the student’s account and the investigative findings supporting it. We thus have provided a fair and accurate historical record of how this incident unfolded."

This is the way justice looks when done correctly and I'm glad to see 
a few other will be hit as well. Liberals have over stepped the line.
 
The corrupt MSM should be hit hard by the Federal government for
laws they broke against the First Amendment and abuse of power.
CNN, MSNBC should the first to lose their license.

He's still got lawsuits against WaPo and I think maybe a few others. Some "celebrities" maybe.

I heard today that his lawyer is going directly after a CNN anchor who claimed his face was fist worthy or something like that and also is going after Kathy Griffin.  We can only hope he will prevail in both endeavors and even more as time goes on.

I know some said they wish they could wipe/knock the smile/grin off his face but thankfully today he's smiling for a totally different reason.  Below is a list of people whom Nick's lawyer has sent letters to.  You can bet that CNN's decision to settle out of court will reverberate throughout all of these people's minds and create fear in many others.

I'm glad to see him going after the so called "celebrities".

Exactly, and also some of the personalities on Cable News that have no problem inserting their own opinions as part of the news.  Even more, I'd love to see him prevail in his suits against them due to their extreme tendencies to insert themselves into every single story out there and their attempts to ruin anyone they perceive to be aligned with Trump or Conservatives all without any repercussions.  Well, for them, Nick Sandmann may turn out to be one huge repercussion to all of them.
