Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann has assembled a world-class legal team to pursue potential libel claims against mainstream news organizations, and it seems that the fake news Washington Post is running scared.
The Bezos-owned outlet recently attempted to revise history on their coverage of the Covington Catholic hate hoax, in which mainstream news outlets joined forces with a Native American activist to falsely accuse students like Nick from a Kentucky Catholic high school of “disrespect” from a confrontation at the Lincoln Memorial.
The story broke down when it was exposed the Native activist, Nathan Philips, was the one who confronted the Covington boys. The students had been demonstrating peacefully, despite being racially harassed and abused by a hate group that was present, the Black Hebrew Israelites.
When the deception of the mainstream media was fully revealed, 17-year old Sandmann took it upon himself to fight back. He’s filed a $250 million lawsuit against the Bezos-owned Post, securing the services of a high-profile attorney named Lin Wood.
Feeling the heat, it seems that the Post is trying to deter Sandmann’s lawsuit by altering their original coverage of the infamous incident. They recently published an updated editor’s note on the topic, acknowledging that their original coverage of the event was simply erroneous and one-sided.
This is comes from a corporately-owned dinosaur media outlet known for its claims to be the very antithesis of fake news, folks. The Post even went on to delete some of their tweets on the matter.
However, the outlet’s weak retraction isn’t enough to get them out of a day in court with none other than the Sandmann himself.
A statement from Sandmann’s legal team maintains that “the Washington Post rushed to claim leadership of a mainstream and social media mob of bullies who falsely attacked, vilified and threatened Nicholas Sandmann, an innocent 16-year old boy. The Friday night efforts by the Post to whitewash its wrongdoing were untimely, grossly insufficient and did little more than perpetuate the lies it published – lies that will haunt and adversely impact Nicholas for the rest of his life.”
Sandmann never sought to make himself a public figure, let alone a target for shameless defamation from centrist and liberal D.C and New York “journalists.” It’ll be interesting to see where his crusade to push back against the progressive bullies ends up going.
