WaPo Finally Settles with Nicholas Sandmann
Nicholas Sandmann – the Kentucky teen who was vilified by the Liberal media after he was caught on camera during a tense moment with Native American activist Nathan Phillips – has finally reached an agreement with the Washington Post.
“On 2/19/19, I filed $250M defamation lawsuit against Washington Post. Today, I turned 18 & WaPo settled my lawsuit,” tweeted Sandmann. “Thanks to [Todd McMurtry] & [Lin Wood] for their advocacy. Thanks to my family & millions of you who have stood your ground by supporting me.”
Sandmann reached a multi-million dollar deal with CNN in January, but is still fighting six other news outlets that twisted video coverage of his interaction with Mr. Phillips.
Here’s what happened:
Sandmann and his classmates were on a field trip to Washington, DC. They were waiting to board a bus and head home when a group of Black Hebrew Israelites began shouting racist slurs at the students. Sandmann led his friends in a school chant to drown out the insults.
Mr. Phillips approached the students and began speaking. The students continued chanting and Sandmann stood with a smile on his face, saying nothing. The altercation took place following the March for Life event, which coincided with the Indigenous Peoples March.
Instead of taking the time to learn the full story, the Liberal media pounced on the opportunity to show a group of white kids in MAGA hats “mocking” a Native American elder. By the time the full story was exposed, it was too late to reverse the damage to Sandmann’s reputation.
As noted in Sandmann’s defamation suit, the WaPo and others “wrongfully targeted and bullied Nicholas because he was the white, Catholic student wearing a red MAGA souvenir cap on a school field trip to the Jan 18. March for Life in Washington, DC.”
Author’s Note: Sandmann ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time and did not deserve to be attacked. This situation only goes to show that the WaPo and others are getting worse, skewing their stories so hard that most content is unreadable.
