Here’s a brief overview of the Covington Catholic School scandal. A bunch of kids who attend a Catholic school went to a pro-life rally in D.C. Pretty normal stuff. While waiting for the busses to come pick them up, they were harassed by two different groups of aggressors.
Biased video of that harassment was published online and the left-wing media jumped at the chance to paint the pro-life and by extension Trump supporting kids as a bunch of evil racists. That’s the story, and it’s sickening.
In response to this monstrous example of fake news, the kids who were slandered by the media went to court. Lawsuits have been leveled at CNN, The Washington Post and even politicians like Elizabeth Warren. Most of those suits are still unresolved, but the suit between Nick Sandmann and CNN has been settled.
The details of the settlement are confidential, but we can reasonably assume that Sandmann wouldn’t accept anything less than overt contrition from the news organization. They made his life hell, forever impacting his ability to get into college or get a job, and you can bet significant retribution was included in that settlement.
How big was the victory? Only the parties behind those closed doors will know. But, as the rest of the suits continue down their path, it’s important to remember how genuinely evil the left-wing media was in all of this.
This video is a nice recap of the false reporting and outrage that was aimed at a bunch of kids who literally did nothing wrong. It then shows the chagrin of everyone who jumped to conclusions. The one thing you won’t find in the video is any retractions, because that still hasn’t happened. It’s ok to be angry when you watch this video.
