Social justice warriors and media pundits better lawyer up, because Covington Catholic’s Nick Sandmann isn’t playing around. The teenager, who became the target of racist accusations and doxxing in January, has begun filing lawsuits against those who libeled him, called for the release of his personal information and organized battalions of online social media accounts to threaten him.
Last year, lawyers for Sandmann filed a massive $250 million dollar lawsuit against the Jeff Bezos owned Washington Post, one of the leading media companies behind the narrative.
Another lawsuit, this time against CNN, seeking $275 million, was filed in March and stated: “CNN brought down the full force of its corporate power, influence, and wealth on Nicholas by falsely attacking, vilifying, and bullying him despite the fact that he was a minor child.”
“Contrary to its ‘Facts First’ public relations ploy, CNN ignored the facts and put its anti-Trump agenda first in waging a 7-day media campaign of false, vicious attacks against Nicholas, a young boy who was guilty of little more than wearing a souvenir Make America Great Again cap,” said the 58-page lawsuit filed in May.
Sandmann has also sued NBC.
Cincinnati Enquirer reported that the Cable News Network (CNN) has reached a settlement with Nick Sandmann, a Covington Catholic High School student who had sued the news outlet saying it defamed him.
A CNN spokesperson confirmed Tuesday with The Enquirer that a settlement was reached.
The network would not comment on the details of the settlement. Nick’s lawyers did not respond to phone calls or emails at the time of this report.
