Will being sued for more than a quarter billion dollars get CNN to stop jumping to conclusions about conservatives before knowing all the facts?
The answer is probably “no.”
However, maybe now they’ll learn a big lesson.
From Fox News:
CNN is likely to be hit with a massive lawsuit worth more than $250 million over alleged “vicious” and “direct attacks” on Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann, his lawyer has told Fox News.
Lawyer L. Lin Wood discussed his decision to sue CNN for its reporting and coverage of his client during an interview that will air on Fox News Channel’s “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday at 10 p.m. ET.
CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes,” Wood told Fox News host and best-selling author Mark Levin.
Nathan Phillips, the Native American man who confronted the Sandmann and the other teens, stormed a Catholic Church and disrupted mass AFTER the shenanigans at the Lincoln Memorial.
While chanting and playing ceremonial drums, a group of Native American rights activists reportedly led by Nathan Phillips attempted Jan. 19 to enter Washington, D.C.’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception during a Saturday evening Mass.
The group of 20 demonstrators was stopped by shrine security as it tried to enter the church during its 5:15 pm Vigil Mass, according to a shrine security guard on duty during the Mass.
It was really upsetting,” the guard said.
He added, “There were about twenty people trying to get in, we had to lock the doors and everything.”
“We had hundreds and hundreds of people from all over the country come here to celebrate life, to celebrate each other together. That a protest tried to come inside during Mass was really the worst.”

Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false — smeared by media. Not good, but making big comeback! “New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American” @TuckerCarlson

In 2015, Phillips claimed that a group of college students were mocking him as he walked by.
From Fox 2 Detroit:
He walked by a home where he saw Eastern Michigan University students dressed as Native Americans.
“They had little feathers on, I was just going to walk by,” Phillips said. “A group of them said ‘Come on over, come here.’”
He says he walked over to the fence and saw roughly 30 to 40 students involved in a theme party.
