Nick Sandmann is fighting back and winning as he swings. That is a good sign for fairness in our out-of-control media environment that sells clicks without facts and destroys lives.
He will sue ABC, CBS, The New York Times, Gannet and Rolling Stone magazine. Based on his victory over CNN, These media outlets should be very afraid.
Fox19 reported that Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann intends to file complaints with the intent to sue five additional media outlets following an incident at the March For Life in 2019.
On Feb. 24, Sandmann’s attorneys submitted a status report with the U.S. District Court in Covington which stated that they intend to file complaints against Gannett, ABC, CBS, The New York Times and Rolling Stone before March 9.
“All of the future defendants listed above have published or republished statements made by Nathan Phillips and others that Nicholas blocked or otherwise restricted Phillips’ free movement and would not allow Phillips to retreat at the National Mall on January 18, 2019. Nicholas reserves his right to file complaints in this is Court or any other court against any other potential defendant not listed above, subject to the applicable statute of limitations,” the report reads.
The Daily Wire reported that Sandmann previously filed lawsuits ranging from $250 million to $275 million against The Washington Post, CNN, and NBC Universal for their reporting on the incident.
In January, Sandmann received his first big win in his legal fight against the media after CNN settled the $275 million lawsuit that Sandmann’s team filed against them.
“CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes,” Wood told Fox News’ Mark Levin last year. “CNN couldn’t resist the idea that here’s a guy with a young boy, with that Make America Great Again cap on. So they go after him.”
