LIVE UPDATES: Here Are Some Mainstream Media Outlets The Covington Catholic Kids Are Considering SUING
Atlanta libel lawyer L. Lin Wood identified Bill Maher and HBO as potential lawsuit targets after the mainstream media smeared his client Nick Sandmann and fellow students of Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky near the Lincoln Memorial at the March for Life.
The Covington students’ legal team is analyzing all options in response to the slander, doxxing, and threatening of the Kentucky students and their families. Here are some lawsuit targets who have been identified by lawyers for the boys:
“As made clear in our joint statement…lawyers in my firm…will carefully review all false accusations and threats made against Nick. We are well aware of the obscenities uttered by Bill Maher and broadcast on HBO,” said L. Lin Wood. (READ: Bill Maher’s Sexist Unpublished Manuscript, ‘What I’ve Learned About Women.’)
Maher went on a vile rant against the teenager:
“I don’t blame the kid, the smirk-face kid. I blame lead poisoning and bad parenting. And, oh yeah, I blame the f—ing kid,” Maher stated.
“What a little p—-. Smirk-face!…This smirking kid says he was just trying to defuse the situation. Really? Next time you get into a fight … try that,” Maher stated, indicating a threat.
Reporter DC McAllister, a college classmate of Christine Blasey Ford, first reported the following names:
Kathy Griffin led the charge on the doxxing of the teenagers.
In fact, she literally declared: “Name these kids. I want NAMES. Shame them. If you think these fuckers wouldn’t dox you in a heartbeat, think again.”
Ps. The reply from the school was pathetic and impotent. Name these kids. I want NAMES. Shame them. If you think these fuckers wouldn’t dox you in a heartbeat, think again. https://t.co/IS80wiaQ7v

At some point, the progressive Left figured out that American conservatism lives on in airports because professional people who travel tend to stay plugged into the traditional news cycle, not just the fever swamps of propaganda. So, the progressive Left set out to destroy the airport experience in three ways:
- They turned ESPN into a social-justice engine, thus ruining sports.
- The Obama administration gave CNN an FAA-approved monopoly on terminal television (and the ability to fly drones over people).
- USA Today, long branded as being moderate, became the go-to print newspaper for the Resistance.
Operating through the Gannett Company in the Virginia suburbs over in Tysons Corner, USA Today has become shocking propaganda.
USA Today has published the Cincinnati Enquirer’s extensive investigations into the supposedly racist culture of Covington Catholic High School, and has opined that “Covington Catholic videos show life is complicated. But we still saw what we saw.”
That opinion came AFTER the full video shows how the Covington boys were confronted by the Black Hebrew Israelites and left-wing activist Nathan Phillips, who has a history of accusing students of racism after approaching them. (WATCH Nathan Phillips From The Last Time He Pulled This In 2015).
I explained how USA Today reporter Brad Heath does the bidding of George Soros after Heath harassed a private citizen, “Loretta the Prole,” who posted about Soros’ connection to the migrant caravan on Twitter.
Alan Greenspan’s wife Andrea Mitchell of NBC News is one of television’s most prolific propagandists.
The Washington Post
The Washington Post, one of the first mainstream news publications to seize on the narrative of racist teenagers harassing an elderly veteran, published a correction to its story today, noting that Phillips is not a Vietnam veteran.
Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972 to 1976 but was never deployed to Vietnam.
Many began questioning the media’s reporting that Phillips served in Vietnam when his age, 64, became known. Assuming he enlisted at 17, Phillips would have had to be deployed to Vietnam in 1972, and the last Marines left Vietnam in 1971.
Phillips, who Big League Politics painstakingly exposed as a left-wing fundraiserand media darling who appeared in an anti-police music video and previously accused a different group of students of anti-Native racism, never specifically called himself a Vietnam veteran. Instead, perhaps seeing this revelation coming, Phillips carefully used the phrase “Vietnam times veteran”, a vague expression that seemingly means he served in the military during the Vietnam war.
While it seems this fact should have been easy to check, it did not stop the entire mainstream media from referring to Phillips as a Vietnam veteran.
Quick research reveals most mainstream media is still mistakenly referring to Phillips as a Vietnam veteran even after The Washington Post’s correction, with Inside Edition, CBS News, Rolling Stone, Yahoo! News, and Fox News all still describing him as such. Perhaps the worst is Vogue, which specifically refers to Phillips as a veteran “who served as an infantryman in the Vietnam War.”

Maggie Haberman, a 45-year old woman who works for the New York Times, took up the task of trying to get the young men expelled from their school.
There are dozens of students laughing and egging on the behavior. Will be interesting to see if anyone is actually expelled, as officials suggest is possible https://t.co/l7kjDOxiS7

Esquire, once a moderate men’s publication, has become progressive propaganda.
Fake News CNN host S.E. Cupp expressed “regret” for joining in the verified Blue Check pile-on on the MAGA kids.
Hey guys. Seeing all the additional videos now, and I 100% regret reacting too quickly to the Covington story. I wish I’d had the fuller picture before weighing in, and I’m truly sorry.
