Covington Catholic High school student sues NBC for $275M

I hope the kid prevail$.

From Fox News: Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann is suing NBCUniversal for a whopping $275 million over the media coverage he received earlier this year, his lawyer said Wednesday.

Sandmann was at the center of a viral controversy back in January, alongside reports suggesting that he and his classmates had initiated a confrontation with Native American elder Nathan Phillips outside the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Subsequent reporting and video evidence contradicted that version of events.

Sandmann’s attorney, Todd V. McMurty, announced the defamation suit against NBCUniversal.

“NBCUniversal created a false narrative by portraying the ‘confrontation’ as a ‘hate crime’ committed by Nicholas,” the lawsuit read, saying Sandmann was “an easy target for NBCUniversal to advance its anti-Trump agenda because he was a 16-year-old white, Catholic student who had attended the Right to Life March that day and was wearing a MAGA cap at the time of the incident which he had purchased earlier in the day as a souvenir.”

This marks the third major lawusit Sandmann’s legal team has launched. The team is also suing The Washington Post for $250 million as well as CNN for $275 million. McMurty previously suggested that The Associated Press and HBO could face simiilar lawsuits.

NBCUniversal did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Good. Every family involved should sue those lying scumbags. Bury them in lawsuits

This will never get to trial, although it’d be great if it did. But, in the court of public opinion, the companies know they’ve already lost and will not get a “fair or impartial jury” to sit for a trial and render a judgment on the facts. These suits will result in a bunch of motion paperwork, which doesn’t cost any more than the cost of paper and some time. It will take about 5-7 years to be finalized because the big media companies will drag this out in order to keep the money a bit longer that they’ll have… Read more »

Let it take five-ten years, this young boy and his parents need restitution for the harm, anguish and public disgrace they been put through. By the time money rolls around will make the headlines and the next day it’ll all be forgotten after all money talks and bullshit walks. CNN, WASHINGTON POST and NBC Universal, might not even exist!

I was more than happy to support this particular cause. If these large entities do not get taught a lesson–they will continue to do the same garbage to other innocent people.

Thank you, DCG and Dr Eowyn, for bringing this to our attention.
