Covington Catholic Students to Sue CNN for $250 Million

Less than two months after the mainstream media dragged Covington Catholic high school students through the mud over an incident that occurred in our nation’s capital, Nicholas Sandmann is ready to hit back.

Sandmann was at the center of one of the biggest controversies of the year for doing nothing but merely smirking, as a Native American elder beat a drum in front of his face.

Members of the left-wing media mob were quick to pounce on the students and single out Sandmann as being racist and disrespectful towards the Native American man, Nathan Phillips.

It later came out that Phillips lied about being a Vietnam War veteran, and early reports that the high school students were shouting racist slurs along with “build the wall” at the Natives were also deemed false. Longer footage of the events that took place that day showed the Black Hebrew Israelites shouting racist slurs at the students instead, but this incident received much less coverage in the news.

Sandmann, his family, and his classmates endured an endless barrage of violent threats from liberals across the country, due to the lies told by the mainstream media. Sandmann is now gearing up to sue CNN for more than $250 million, his lawyer told Fox News this weekend.

L. Lin Wood told Mark Levin, “CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes.”
