Washington Post Settles $250 Million Dollar Lawsuit With Nicholas Sandmann For Undisclosed Amount

Back in 2019, when students from the Covington Catholic School were in Washington, DC, they were smeared by the media simply because they were wearing Trump hats.

In a now famous image, a Native American man approached one of the students, Nicholas Sandmann, who did nothing wrong. He simply smiled at the man.

Numerous liberal media outlets rushed to declare Sandmann a racist, for doing nothing. The boy was completely innocent.

So the Sandmann family sued them all. CNN settled with them several months ago, and now the Washington Post has, as well.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Nicholas Sandmann, 18, who was the subject of a viral altercation between his classmates and a Native American man, announced the resolution to his lawsuit against the news outlet on Friday. Sandmann’s family sought at least $250 million in damages for the paper’s reporting that portrayed the MAGA hat-wearing teenager as a racist for smiling in the face of Native American activist Nathan Phillips.

“On 2/19/19, I filed $250M defamation lawsuit against Washington Post. Today, I turned 18 & WaPo settled my lawsuit. Thanks to [Todd McMurtry] & [Lin Wood] for their advocacy. Thanks to my family & millions of you who have stood your ground by supporting me. I still have more to do,” he shared on Twitter. “We have settled with WAPO and CNN. The fight isn’t over. 2 down. 6 to go. Don’t hold your breath [Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey].”

“We are pleased that we have been able to reach a mutually agreeable resolution of the remaining claims in this lawsuit,” Kris Coratti, a spokeswoman for the Washington Post, told the Washington Examiner.

This entire episode was a reminder of how downright evil some of our media outlets have become in recent years.

Maybe the media will think twice next time.
