“The Most Trusted Name in News” may soon be a lot lighter in the wallet.
That’s because Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann has filed a lawsuit against CNN for defamation.
The suit comes after the 24-hour news network ran with a story accusing a group of catholic high school students of instigating a confrontation with a Native American man in Washington D.C. Turns out that wasn’t exactly the case.
More video later came out showing that that it was the Native American man who walked up to the students, beating a drum in Sandmann’s face.
While he won’t get that kind of cash, the lawsuit embarrasses CNN and let’s be honest, that’s the real intent of the suit and they should be shamed for jumping to a conclusion in the case with little evidence to support their narrative.
