Students at Covington Catholic School in Kentucky who peacefully attended a ‘March for Lives’ protest, were falsely accused of harassing a Native American Freon Ranger (who was known for stolen valor), attacked by the liberal media and received numerous death threats. Twitter didn’t think that violated their TOS either. Like the rest of the liberal drive-by media, CNN pushed the ‘racist Covington students’ lie.
CNN settled their lawsuit with Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandman. The amount of the settlement has not been revealed.

CNN on Tuesday settled a defamation lawsuit filed by Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann over its botched coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder that had portrayed the Kentucky teen as the aggressor.
Fox 19 first reported that CNN settled with Sandmann for an undisclosed amount. The $250 million defamation suit sought damages for the “emotional distress Nicholas and his family suffered” in the fallout of the network’s reporting.
A lawyer for Sandmann declined to comment on the settlement but confirmed to Fox News that lawsuits against The Washington Post and NBC were ongoing. Fox 19 also reported that Sandmann attorney L. Lin Wood told the judge they planned to sue media company Gannett, the publisher of the Cincinnati Enquirer among other newspapers, within 60 days. Gannett did not immediately comment either.
More lawsuits to come. I hope Sandman cleans their fucking clocks.
