CNN Settles Lawsuit With Covington Teen Nick Sandmann For Undisclosed Amount

CNN just had to pay off another lawsuit.

A year ago, when the boys of Covington Catholic were visiting DC, they were targeted by the liberal media for the simple reason that they were wearing MAGA hats.

CNN was one of the outlets that attacked them unfairly. Now they had to pay.

The terms of the settlement were not publicized during the hearing at the federal courthouse in Covington, Kentucky. Sandmann sought $800 million in damages from CNN, the Washington Post, and NBC Universal. Lawsuits against the latter news outlets are still pending.

“This case will be tried not one minute earlier or later than when it is ready,” Lin Wood, an attorney for the student, said of the lawsuits.

Sandmann and his classmates were accused of mocking Native American activist Nathan Phillips while wearing a red “Make America Great Again” baseball hat during last January’s March for Life event.
