DELUSION: As Covington Catholic Defamation Trial Begins, WaPo Argues It ‘Exonerated’ Nick Sandmann
The first defamation case filed on behalf of Nicholas Sandmann, the young man who was profiled by the mass media as a racist for wearing a Trump hat and being harassed by social justice activists in Washington D.C., against the Washington Post is now underway. A hearing on a motion to dismiss was heard earlier today.
Attorney Lin Wood, who is representing Sandmann alongside lawyer Todd McMurtry, reported that the Post is arguing in the court of law that their reporting “exonerated” the young man from social media attacks in the hopes of getting the lawsuit dismissed.
Wood described other bizarre legal arguments offered by the best lawyers that globalist Jeff Bezos’ billions could buy.
Sandmann is looking for $250 million from the corporate fake news giant that is renown for their anti-conservative bias. Judge William O. Bertelsman will decide whether or not to dismiss the lawsuit at the Post’s behest in the upcoming weeks.
Wood and McMurtry liken the newspaper’s actions to a “modern-day form of McCarthyism” where the Post fought with other publishing outfits to “claim leadership” over a mob of “bullies which attacked, vilified, and threatened Nicholas Sandmann.”
It was an honor to argue today for Nicholas Sandmann against the @washingtonpost. I commend the parties for bringing these issues of national interest before the court. @LLinWoodhttps://t.co/8yHLmdpxrv

They claim Sandmann’s reputation was “permanently scarred” by the incident, and he received many death threats as a result from the Post’s shoddy reporting.
Sandmann and his attorneys are also suing CNN and NBC for $275 million in two separate cases.
If justice is served in the court of law, there could be a precedent of huge monetary losses for rags that perpetrate fake news and demonize individuals unjustly.
