Lawyers for Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann released a damning video calling out CNN and the Washington Post for recklessly spreading lies about a minor to “advance their own financial and political agendas.”
The video, titled, Nick Sandmann vs Media Giants states that CNN and the Washington Post, “Both recklessly spread lies about a minor to advance their own financial and political agenda. Despite raw video debunking the false narrative, the Post and CNN doubled down on their reckless lies.”
Sandmann’s attorney, L Lin Wood tweeted the video today and wrote, “BOY vs GIANTS: They Messed With the Wrong Kid! Covington Student, Nicholas Sandmann, Is Taking On the Goliath Corporations that Smeared His Good Name and Endangered His Life and Future. Please Watch. Like. Retweet. Together We Will…
The video asks “How long will we allow these media giants to tear at the fabric of our lives to further their own agendas? Will they ever be held accountable?”
The video continues, “Yes they will. Nicholas Sandmann has taken a stand for himself and for you by filing major lawsuits against CNN and the Washington Post.”
It was announced yesterday that Sandmann filed a $275 million defamation lawsuit against CNN. The suit claims that the network “elevated false, heinous accusations of racist conduct” against Sandmann and failed to adhere to “well-established journalistic standards and ethics.”
Last month, Sandmann filed a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post, claiming the newspaper wrote “false and defamatory” articles about him.
The mainstream media’s original narrative about the Covington kids was that the students–who were in Washington D.C. last month for the March for Life–were disrespectful to Native American protester, Nathan Phillips. However, it turns out that a longer version of the video proves that the students were taunted by protesters–most likely–for wearing pro-Trump MAGA hats. The extended version of the video also shows Phillips approaching the students.
Video also shows the students were harassed by a group of “Black Hebrew Israelites” who called the children products of incest, “peckerwoods” and “dusty ass crackers,” among other names.
