Washington Post & Covington’s Nick Sandmann Settle $250 MILLION Lawsuit

(PresidentialWire.com)- Remember the Covington Catholic High School kids? They’re the young Catholic boys who were smeared by left-wing media outlets when footage was published of a native American man banging a drum their faces. The young students, many wearing Make America Great Again hats, politely smiled while he protested in front of them.

Nick Sandmann, one of those students, became the focus of hatred and even violent threats from left-wing celebrities. It resulted in a massive $250 million lawsuit with the Washington Post…a lawsuit that has now reportedly been settled.

Sandmann announced the news on Twitter, describing how he filed the lawsuit on 2/19/19.

“Today, I turned 18 & WaPo settled my lawsuit,” he said. “Thanks to @ToddMcMurtry & @LLinWood for their advocacy. Thanks to my family & millions of you who have stood your ground by supporting me. I still have more to do.”

While it’s already a big victory for Sandmann, he made it clear that he wouldn’t be backing down. While confirming that the Washington Post and CNN have already settled there are six more outlets (or people) left to go.

“Don’t hold your breath @jack,” he said, in reference to the CEO of Twitter.

Sandmann is winning the cases because media outlets acted in a demonstrably irresponsible way. Not only did they leave Sandmann open to these violent threats, but they misrepresented what really happened. Footage showed that the boys were not the aggressors, but they reported that they were anyway.

In an official statement, attorney Todd McMurtry explained that Sandmann was willing to settle with the Post because the outlet was “quick to publish the whole truth-through it’s follow-up coverage and editor’s notes.”

Doesn’t it feel great when the media gets what it deserves?
