LIST: More Than 50 in News, Hollywood, Politics, Sent Legal Letters by Lawyers for Covington Catholic Students

Two weeks after the fake news media falsely smeared Nick Sandmann and a groups of other students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky, more than 50 people have been sent legal letters in the “first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits,” according to Cincinnati.com.

Media, Hollywood, and political personalities, as well as several Catholic Dioceses piled on the young men who were falsely accused of racism after the fake news media spread an out-of-context clip of them laughing as a Native American man beat a drum in their face at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. The event sparked a national outcry against the media when Big League Politics and others shared the hour-long video of the event in context, which clearly shows that the Native man targeted the boys.

Here is the list of possible defendants, if legal action proceeds:

  • The Washington Post
  • The New York Times
  • Cable News Network, Inc. (CNN)
  • The Guardian
  • National Public Radio
  • TMZ
  • Atlantic Media Inc.

Hollywood loudmouths Kathy Griffin, Alyssa Milano, and Jim Carrey, all Trump haters, could have a legal battle on their hands too.
