Press Secretary Sarah Sanders condemned the media’s smear campaign against the Covington Catholic High School students while appearing on Fox News.
As many in the media continue to double down on the factually false and quickly debunked narrative about the Covington teens, Sarah Sanders went on Fox News to give her opinion on the controversy.
“I’ve never seen people so happy to destroy a kid’s life. When that becomes the norm in the media, in America, simply because they’re associated with this president, that is disgraceful, and that should never happen,” said Sanders, “Let’s hope that this is a lesson to all of the media, to everyone.”
“Let’s focus on getting things right, not getting them first.”
Just wait until she meets Kirstjen Nielsen!

Even as the lawyer representing the Covington students begins the process of suing public figures for libel against the students, many in the mainstream media are refusing to admit they were incorrect. Even while elected officials begin to walk back their remarks and delete their tweets, NBC News is still pushing the “racist teen” narrative, and today added antisemitism, without evidence, to the list of charges against the teens.
The fake news narrative has already led to real consequences. Calls to dox and commit violence against the students led to a suspicious package being discovered in the Covington Diocese and the school to close due to safety concerns.
As the story began to unfold, Big League Politics offered analysis from a lawyer who suggested that not only are the children the victims of a massive smear campaign, they are also victims of the crime of assault at the hands of Nathan Phillips.
