CNN’s Brian Stelter Accused Of Breaking Network’s Confidentiality Agreement – Will It Cost Him His Job?

CNN recently settled a lawsuit with Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic High School teenager who was smeared by the media for wearing a MAGA hat.

Similarly, the Washington Post settled a suit with Sandmann last week.

Sandmann’s lawyer recently spotted a retweet by CNN’s Brian Stelter, speculating on the size of the settlement. That was a big mistake, and it could cost Stelter more than money.

Last week, Sandmann announced that The Washington Post settled the $250 million defamation lawsuit he filed over its botched coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder that had portrayed the Kentucky teen as the aggressor. This followed the multi-million dollar settlement CNN made with the teenager back in January.

However, Sandmann’s attorney Lin Wood spotted a retweet from Stelter of a tweet written by attorney Mark Zaid, who speculated about how much money the teen walked away with from the settlement.

“Those with zero legal experience (as far as I can tell) should not be conjecturing on lawsuits they know nothing about. What kind of journalism is that?” Zaid asked. “I’ve litigated defamation cases. [Sandmann] was undoubtedly paid nuisance value settlement & nothing more.”

Sandmann himself tweeted this:

Brian Stelter thinks he is untouchable.

He might be about to learn otherwise.
