Quote:
CNN has agreed to settle a multimillion-dollar defamation suit filed by Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann over the network’s depiction of his 2019 encounter with Native American activists.

Sandmann was part of a MAGA cap-wearing group of students at an anti-abortion rally in Washington on Jan. 18 when his confrontation with 64-year-old Native American activist and ex-Marine Nathan Phillips was picked up by CNN and other news outlets.

The teen was vilified on social media over the seemingly racially motivated footage, which showed mostly white teenage boys staring down and yelling at the demonstrators.

But additional footage released later showed it was the Covington students who were being accosted.

The suit, which includes a separate $250 million claim against the Washington Post, accused the paper, CNN and NBC Universal of targeting Sandmann because of his support for President Trump.

He’s going to get rich over that? So ridiculous.

IMO it's well deserved given the circumstances. CNN has been getting away with libel for far too long. If their audience chooses to accept lies as truth, that's on them. But to attack a child like that? I would be a lot more upset about that, and not lamenting the fact that this boy is being compensated for being a victim. This was settled out of court. If we want to start questioning why some people got rich, I would be a lot more concerned with how people like Jeffrey Epstein got their wealth. Or how our politicians become millionaires when some of them make less than I do (on paper).
