The law firm representing Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann just released a bombshell video attacking CNN and The Washington Post.
L. Lin Wood, P.C. accused major media outlets of spreading false information and “reckless lies” about the 16-year-old Sandmann last January. In response to that incident, Sandmann’s legal team filed a $275 million dollar lawsuit this week against CNN.
The Federalist Papers Reports:
“It is a significant lawsuit seeking $75 million in compensatory damages and $200 million in punitive damages from CNN,” Todd McMurtry, one of Sandmann’s attorneys, explained.
And just now, Sandmann’s legal team has released a bombshell video attacking the leftist media giants who nearly destroyed Sandmann and his reputation through intentionally dishonest attacks.
From The Daily Wire:
Sandmann’s legal team then released a video on Wednesday highlighting the danger that major media organizations pose to society as a whole with the divisive narratives they push.
“Last January, 16-year-old Nicholas Sandmann was falsely targeted, attacked, vilified, and threatened,” the video begins. “The Washington Post, owned by the richest man in the world, led the print media’s false attacks against Nicholas’ reputation. CNN led the broadcast media’s charge against Nicholas. Both recklessly spread lies about a minor to advance their own financial and political agendas.”“Despite raw video debunking the false narrative, the Post and CNN doubled down on their reckless lies,” the video continues. “Lies that will forever haunt and endanger the life of an innocent young man. Lies that further divided our nation.”
“How long will we allow these media giants to tear at the fabric of our lives to further their own agendas? Will they ever be held accountable? Yes, they will,” the video adds. “Nicholas Sandman has taken a stand for himself and for you by filing major lawsuits against CNN and the Washington Post. Nicholas and his legal team will not be stopped until these Goliath corporations are held accountable for their lack of journalistic integrity. Until then, no one’s reputation is safe.”
At the end of the video, attorney Lin Wood states: “If you took the time to look at the full context of what happened that day, Nicholas Sandmann did absolutely nothing wrong. If they can get away with this against a 16-year-old boy then we’re all at risk. There has to be change.” …
