NBC Sued for $275 Million Over Fake Covington Catholic News


Having already filed multi-million dollar lawsuits against the Washington Post and CNN, attorneys for Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann struck against this week, bringing a $275 million lawsuit against NBCUniversal. The reason for the lawsuits are all the same; they are seeking legal redress for coverage of the controversial “false narrative” that these outlets used to smear their MAGA-hat adorned client back in January. In the lawsuit, the attorneys accuse NBC News and MSNBC of pursuing a fact-free story because they were blinded by their “anti-Trump agenda.”

From the Washington Times:

The lawsuit, the third filed by the Sandmann attorneys against major media outlets, alleged that NBC targeted the Covington Catholic High School student in its reporting on his Jan. 18 encounter with Native American activist Nathan Phillips at the Lincoln Memorial.

“NBCUniversal created a false narrative by portraying the ‘confrontation’ as a ‘hate crime’ committed by Nicholas,” said the complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky.

The lawsuit alleged that the teen was “an easy target for NBCUniversal to advance its anti-Trump agenda because he was a 16-year-old white, Catholic student who had attended the Right to Life March that day and was wearing a MAGA cap at the time of the incident which he had purchased earlier in the day as a souvenir.”

The latest lawsuit alleged that NBCUniversal, through its news outlets NBC and MSNBC, “unleashed its vast corporate wealth, influence, and power against Nicholas to falsely attack him despite the fact that at the time, he was a 16-year-old high school student.”

As you’ll recall, the moment some Twitter fool published a picture of Sandmann “smirking” at fake Vietnam Vet Phillips, with that red MAGA cap perched on his head, the game was on. Every mainstream media outlet (and to their shame, more than a few conservative sites) jumped on the bandwagon immediately. For the next 24 hours – at least – Sandmann was turned into the #1 villain in the United States. Without any fact-checking of their own, outlets like NBC parroted Phillips’ account of the situation, which involved the Covington Catholic boys shouting racist phrases, mocking the Native Americans, and blocking Phillips from peacefully approaching the Lincoln Memorial.

We can only guess how far this injustice might have gone were it not for the tiny inconvenience of videotaped evidence. But when that evidence emerged, it became immediately clear that the Catholic kids did nothing wrong, that Phillips was indeed the aggressor in the situation, and that Sandmann’s greatest crime was captured in that infamous photo: He smiled.

It’s hard to imagine that the fake news industry will top this one by the end of the year. It was a true low point in American “journalism.” We sincerely hope that Sandmann and his family take all of these news outlets to the cleaners. Maybe they’ll actually learn a lesson.

    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  25. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about.

    I am experiencing issues with your RSS. I don’t understand

    Thanx!!

  29. I’ve been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or blog
    posts on this sort of space . Exploring in Yahoo I finally stumbled upon this
    site. Reading this information So i’m satisfied to express that I have
    a very good uncanny feeling I found out exactly what I needed.
    I most indisputably will make sure to do not omit this web site and provides it a
    look on a constant basis.

  30. Greetings! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My web site looks weird when browsing from my
    iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be
    able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please
    share. Thank you!

  31. Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues
    with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  32. I think everything posted made a lot of sense. But, what
    about this? what if you wrote a catchier post title? I mean,
    I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a post title that makes people want more?
    I mean NBC Sued for $275 Million Over Fake Covington Catholic News – Conservative Free Press is kinda plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s front
    page and watch how they write news headlines to get viewers
    interested. You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people interested about everything’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.

  33. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your site when you could be giving us
    something enlightening to read?

  34. I think what you posted made a bunch of sense. But, what
    about this? what if you wrote a catchier post title?
    I am not suggesting your content is not good, but suppose you added a post title that makes people want more?
    I mean NBC Sued for $275 Million Over Fake Covington Catholic News – Conservative Free Press
    is kinda boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write news
    headlines to grab people to click. You might add a video or a related picture or
    two to grab people excited about everything’ve got to
    say. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

  35. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    There’s no doubt that that you need to publish more on this
    subject, it might not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t talk about these subjects.
    To the next! Cheers!!

  36. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted

    be enormously appreciated!
