Studenten Nick Sandmann indgår forlig med CNN

Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann reportedly has received a settlement from CNN after suing the left-wing network for smearing him last year.

“CNN agreed Tuesday to settle a lawsuit with Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann,” Fox 19 reported. “The amount of the settlement was not made public during a hearing at the federal courthouse in Covington.”

Sandmann also filed lawsuits against The Washington Post and NBC Universal, each for $250 million or more, and is reportedly planning to “sue Gannett, owners of The Enquirer.”

In an interview on Fox News last year, McMurtry told anchor Sandra Smith, “Well, what CNN’s tagline is is ‘facts first.’ And what we believe their reporting was in this circumstance was lies first, cover up second, and facts not yet determined by that organization. So the difference between this lawsuit and the other lawsuit that we have filed is that CNN is a very significant media organization with a much broader reach than, say, the Washington Post. It has Twitter followers of 41 million people. It published four videos. Nine online articles that were tweeted out. So that’s millions and millions and millions of repetitions of the lies and falsehoods that CNN spread.”

In early February, Sandmann’s lawyers released a list of 54 individuals and news organizations that they sent letters to instructing them to preserve evidence for potential lawsuits. The list includes:

  1. Ha Ha. Det er så fedt. Det er lige det der skal til. Den eneste måde at ramme dem på er på pengepungen. Håber at han bliver mange millionær på pressens tåbeligheder.

    • Du skal ikke glæde dig for tidligt. Forretningfolk, der er vant til at regne i milliarder, kan man ikke skræmme med et antal millioner. De finder bare en vej at lade almenheden betale for det. Deres usle veje (evil ways) vil ikke ændre sig på denne måde. Og denne hensigt var nok grunden for at straffeskadeerstatning (punitive damages) blev indført.

  2. DDR har fjernet alle henvisninger til sagen. De skrev om den da det skete og hængte Sandmann ud. Pist væk – intet dementi.
