CNN Reaches Settlement With Covington Catholic Student Nick Sandmann

<< < (2/4) > >>

David in MN:
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.
