BOOM! Covington Catholic Student and CNN Reach Settlement Agreement in $275 Million Lawsuit
Last year, the students from Covington Catholic High School were made to look like the bad guys when they were at a protest and a Native American man came and got in the face of one of the students and played his little drum and chanted.
CNN and other liberal news outlets spun the story to portray the students and especially Nick Sandmann as the bad guys. Ultimately, this led to a massive lawsuit against CNN and other outlets.
Now a settlement agreement has been made with CNN.
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.
