He did it!  CNN forced to pay for fake news story!  Experts on radio estimating that it was an eight figure settlement. One lawsuit down, eight more to go.

CNN Reaches Settlement With Covington Catholic Student Nick Sandmann, Ending $275 Million Lawsuit

CNN has reached a settlement agreement with Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann, reports Fox 19. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the student and his family had sued the news company for $275 million after claiming that it had misportrayed Sandmann’s actions while he was on a school trip in Washington D.C.

Attorneys claimed that part of CNN’s motivation was political, as Sandmann was attending a pro-life march and wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. Meanwhile, CNN denied their coverage was politically based.

Outstanding.  I hope that the dollar amount sticks and CNN loses the appeals that they are certainly going to file.

No appeals.  CNN threw in towel and is paying him to avoid trial.

They made up a story whole cloth that required a Reason journalist to watch the whole video to disprove. Then they let the "drummer" do the rounds for heroically standing up to a bunch of Christian kids while walking past the grown men screaming racial epithets. Then they had their news hosts and politicians discuss openly why it would be OK to physically harm kids.

Put yourself in CNN's shoes. You've willfully edited a story to be not just wrong but 180 degrees backward and advocated children be assaulted in the street. I don't know what it takes to run a news agency but falsifying the story and backing child abuse seems a bit off.

On the upside decent people now know that anything from CNN is tainted.

Progressives are in full panic mode deleting tweets and other social media posts.

Example delete is former CNN Commenentor Reza Aslan who pushed for violence against him (CNN later fired him for unrelated violent tweets.against others).

Were the details disclosed?  Or is there a gag order in place?

That's rhetorical, right?   ;D

Unfortunately there are many people that will completely ignore this.

CNN should have been required in the settlement go run a "front page" story on cnn.com describing exactly what happened and each of their "stars" that participated should have to do a story on their show describing their part in the attack on this child.

Under Non-Disclosure Agreement. Lowest estimate I've heard is $10,000,000.

Imagine how upset they are going to be when they likely announce he will be on the campaign trail with Trump.

Should have been quicker with his deletions.  And he isnt the only one.

Former CNN Commentator Sued by Covington Catholic Student Nick Sandmann

According to PJ Media the suit names a variety of public figures including “Ana Navarro, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Maggie Haberman, and Kathy Griffin.” PJ Media also reports that “According to the lawsuit, the tweet calling Sandmann’s face ‘punchable’ further spread the false narrative that the Covington Catholic boys had aggressively insulted the Native American man, when that was not the case.”

BREAKING: New York Times, Rolling Stone, ABC, and CBS all DENIED motions to dismiss lawsuit brought by Covington teen Nick Sandmann

The New York Times, Rolling Stone, ABC News, and CBS News' motions to dismiss the lawsuit brought forward by the defamed teenager were rejected Thursday.

"Today marks another important step towards achieving justice against a media that thinks it has a license to smear," Sandmann told The Post Millennial.

Sandmann's defamation lawsuit against The Washington Post was initially dismissed. Sandmann's attorneys later amended the complaint, reopening the suit. In July, The Washington Post settled the lawsuit with an amount not disclosed to the public.

Sandmann's lawyers also filed a lawsuit on his behalf against CNN in March 2019, seeking $275 million in damages for "vicious" and "direct attacks" towards the high schooler. In January of this year, CNN settled the lawsuit with an undisclosed amount.

agreed.

It's time that we recognize the major media outlets for what they are: propaganda machines. If we realize that everything they say may have an element of truth, but is pretty much universally skewed to try to influence the unthinking populace in a particular way, then we will be that much ahead...

Hoping Kyle Rittenhouse ends up the same way.  Double the hit. Bankrupt them if possible.
