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.
CNN Settles Lawsuit with Covington Catholic Student Nick Sandmann
CNN has agreed to settle a $275 million lawsuit brought by Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann over the network’s coverage of a confrontation involving himself and his classmates and a Native American man during a school trip to Washington, DC, last year, FOX 19 reported Tuesday.
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.
It’s good that some justice was served here.

They brutally smeared him & tried to destroy his life
Will the Media cover this admission of guilt as extensively as they covered the lies about Sandmann?

“Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic High School student at the centre of a major American race hoax, has apparently reached a settlement from CNN after the much-maligned news organization smeared him as a racist last year.” https://t.co/v2YowZ7sev

There are other lawsuits still in the works, too.
