Jonah Goldberg Defends National Review’s ‘Spit On The Cross’ Comparison of Covington Students



National Review Senior Editor Jonah Goldberg defended the outlet’s publication of an article promoting the Covington Catholic leftist hate hoax in an exchange with Big League Politics’ Twitter on Sunday.

Goldberg responded to an inquiry from Big League Politics requesting a statement on NRO’s publication (and subsequent deletion) of an article titled “The Covington Students Might As Well Have Spit on the Cross.” The article, published by National Review deputy managing editor Nicholas Frankovich, treated the now-discredited hate hoax accusations against Covington Catholic High School students as fact even AFTER evidence refuted initial reports.

Once it was unquestionable the students were engaged by Nathan Philips by responding peacefully, opposed to circling the man and chanting abuse at him as initially reported. National Review was forced to delete the article in disgrace. In its content, Frankovich attacked the religious affiliation of the high school boys.

As of Sunday night, neither Frankovich nor National Review has issued a much needed and appropriate apology to the high school kids they shamelessly smeared as the unwitting “conservative” dupes of the progressive left.

Big League Politics asked several National Review writers and personnel for a statement in response to the debacle. Sources within the publication have alleged that a massive internal backlash had developed in response the the publication of Frankovich’s article, which was apparently published without the approval of National Review executive staff.

Goldberg responded with a non-sequitur, defending the controversial article’s publication under the premise of simply being indicative of ideological diversity at NRO.

Goldberg’s claim about a diversity of opinion within the publication has little to nothing to do with a potential apology from Frankovich or NRO. The ‘Spit on the Cross’ article blatantly and shamelessly propagandized a flat-out-lie about Covington Catholic students, on premises now revealed to be false.

These boys are owed an apology, Jonah- crouching behind a fall guy just isn’t going to cut it.

CNN Stands by Fake News Hack Brian Stelter After Allegedly Breaching Confidentiality Agreement

Attorney Lin Wood is calling Stelter out.



Attorney Lin Wood, who has represented former Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann in various defamation suits against prominent media entities, is claiming that CNN hack Brian Stelter violated his confidentiality agreement regarding the case.

CNN is not reprimanding Stelter due to his unprofessional and possibly criminal behavior, showing how the fake news company protects globalist frauds:

Big League Politics has reported on how CNN was forced to pay off Sandmann after issuing biased coverage against the student after he was accosted by a gin-soaked Indian outside of the Lincoln Memorial in 2019:

Fake news giant CNN settled the lawsuit filed against them by Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann today for an undisclosed sum following their biased coverage against the child last year.

Sandmann’s lawsuit sought $800 million from CNN as well as the Washington Post and NBC Universal for their alleged defamation of the student following the boy’s confrontation with far-left Indian activist Nathan Phillips. The cases against the WaPo and NBC are still active.

“This case will be tried not one minute earlier or later than when it is ready,” said Sandmann’s attorney Lin Wood.

Wood also claims that Gannett, the parent company behind the Enquirer, will be slapped with a lawsuit in the days to come. He says that Sandmann continues to suffer from “emotional distress, damage to reputation and distress to his family” as a result of the mistreatment by the fake news.

Last year, the coverage of Sandmann was a galvanizing moment among the Right against the fake news and the liberal hate machine that never hesitates to destroy a young white man’s life over a pack of lies…

Sandmann’s settlement is another stain on the reputation of the fake news, and he may have more payouts to come in the near future. The smear merchants will likely have to pay dearly, as they have overstepped greatly on this hate hoax against a child.

Recently, Jeff Bezos’ Washington Post rag was forced to give a cash settlement to Sandmann as well. The fake news media is finally being compelled to pay for their unethical reporting.

Sandmann is bragging that he is not finished yet in his crusade to bring accountability to media organs that loathe patriotic Americans.

“Thanks to my family and millions of you who have stood your ground by supporting me,” Sandmann added. “I still have more to do.”

Sandmann is showing how the fake news media is vulnerable to push back. Even though CNN refuses to fire Stelter, their credibility is hemorrhaging and the market may punish them for providing misinformation for so long.
