One of the teenaged boys viciously defamed by the Washington Post in one of the most infamous hate hoaxes perpetrated by a mainstream media organization will have his chance to pursue a defamation claim against the paper after all, after a judge reversed a ruling that dismissed his lawsuit against the Post.
Judge William Bertlesman reversed his earlier ruling on Monday, allowing Sandmann to continue his suit against the Washington Post for defaming him in the wake of a confrontation with a Native American activist at the Lincoln Memorial in January.
The Washington Post ruthlessly slurred Sandmann, falsely accusing him of racially harassing Nathan Philips while in D.C with several other students of Kentucky’s Covington Catholic High School to attend the annual March for Life.
In reality, Philips approached the group of Covington students, loudly banging a gun in a confrontational manner, while Sandmann stood by patiently.
In part because of the Washington Post’s fake reporting, Sandmann became a target of online threats and hate propaganda, much of it painted with anti-white undertones. The Post issued a correction to their story far too late in March, after which Sandmann’s attorneys filed a $250 million dollar defamation suit against the Jeff Bezos-owned mainstream media outlet in March.
The suit was shut down by Judge Bertlesman in July, but the federal judge appears to have had a sudden change of heart in allowing the litigation to continue.
The proceedings will now continue on into the discovery phase, in which Sandmann’s attorney, Lin Wood, will present evidence of the Washington Post’s willful defamation and political bias with intent to malign Sandmann, a 17-year old boy at the time of the incident.
Sandmann’s attorney tweeted in light of the results, expressing his desire to continue the proceedings against the Post.
As a prepare for summary judgment hearing today in LA in Vernon Unsworth v. Elon Musk, the news of our team’s huge win in Covington, KY reaffirms my career-long belief that our system of justice works. Nicholas Sandmann deserves his day in court against WaPo. Now he will get it.

Elites within mainstream media generally see it as their prerogative to unfairly malign everyday Americans such as Sandmann, even if they’re underage boys. It appears there’s a possibility they could be finally held accountable in Sandmann’s suit.
Media Lied: President Trump Did Not Claim Operation Desert Storm Occurred During the Vietnam War
The corporate media has been peddling an edited clip.
The mainstream media falsely reported that President Donald Trump confused the setting of ‘Operation Desert Storm,’ a military name for the 1990 Gulf War, during a July 4th speech on the White House lawn on Sunday. The media accused President Trump of falsely stating that Desert Storm was a military operation that took place during the Vietnam War.
Liberals associated with political organizations such as the Lincoln Project and media groups such as PoliticusUSA displayed edited video clips and made dishonest claims that the President had conflated Operation Desert Storm and the Vietnam war, hoping to score a partisan political point.
Trump just said we fought Operation Desert Storm in the jungles of Vietnam, but please tell us again which Presidential candidate lacks cognitive functions.

In contrast to the claims of partisan liberals, President Trump clearly drew a distinction between combat operations in Vietnam and in Kuwait in 1990, having referred to the events in successive fashion.

Other mainstream media pundits and journalists shared claims that Trump had made the mistake, going on to delete their false claims after the erroneous nature of the claim became apparent on social media. Twitter ultimately ended up labeling the claims that the President conflated the two as “manipulated media,” possibly hoping to score credibility with conservatives by executing the bare minimum of content moderation as the platform rampantly censors the free speech of President Trump, conservatives, and right-wingers.
A reporter from MSNBC is yet to delete her tweet falsely accusing the President of confusing Desert Storm and Vietnam, even after the clip she originally retweeted has been delete in acknowledgment of its dishonesty.
Operation Desert Storm…in the jungles of…Vietnam. https://t.co/QEr698vhJ4
