CNN Settles Lawsuit With Covington Teen Nick Sandmann For Undisclosed Amount


CNN just had to pay off another lawsuit. A year ago, when the boys of Covington Catholic
were visiting DC, they were targeted by the liberal media for the simple reason that they
were wearing MAGA hats. CNN was one of the outlets that attacked them
unfairly. Now they had to pay. Breitbart reports: CNN Settles Lawsuit with Covington Catholic
Student Nick Sandmann CNN has agreed to settle a $275 million lawsuit
brought by Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann over the network’s coverage of
a confrontation involving himself and his classmates and a Native American man during
a school trip to Washington, DC, last year, FOX 19 reported Tuesday. The terms of the settlement were not publicized
during the hearing at the federal courthouse in Covington, Kentucky. Sandmann sought $800 million in damages from
CNN, the Washington Post, and NBC Universal. Lawsuits against the latter news outlets are
still pending. “This case will be tried not one minute
earlier or later than when it is ready,” Lin Wood, an attorney for the student, said
of the lawsuits. Sandmann and his classmates were accused of
mocking Native American activist Nathan Phillips while wearing a red “Make America Great
Again” baseball hat during last January’s March for Life event.
