CNN Hit With $275 Million Defamation Lawsuit by Kentucky Student Nick Sandmann

Nick Sandmann known for being at the center of this viral video controversy is suing CNN for $275 million for their coverage of the story.????In January, Sandmann and his fellow Covington Catholic High School students were attending a pro-life rally in Washington D.C.

When Sandmann donning a pro-Trump hat appeared to have a confrontation with a Native American elder Nathan Phillips who was attending a different march.????A short clip of the video went viral condemning the smirking Kentucky teenager before the full footage was later released showed that the high school students were being verbally abused by a third group that was not part of the short, viral clip.????Appearing on Fox News’ “The Story”, Sandmann’s co-counsel Todd McMurty explained the reason for legally pursuing CNN…????SOT??“They did this without any reasonable investigation.

They took something straight off Twitter that had been in essence manipulated so that it told one story and they reported it as truth.”????In February, Sandmann’s lawyers filed a lawsuit against the Washington Post for $250 million in damages for their coverage of the incident.????In a statement, his attorneys said that the Post ignored journalistic standards so it could “advance its well-known and easily documented biased agenda against President Donald J.

Trump”????Trump reacted on Twitter posting that portion of the release and added “Go get them Nick.

Fake News!”????During his Fox News appearance, McMurty said that potential suits could be filed against NBC, The Associated Press, HBO for Bill Maher’s coverage and possibly Kathy Griffin for her tweets following the incident.
