The ‘Fake News’ Knife Cuts Both Ways

Attorneys for Nicholas Sandmann, a student at Covington Catholic High School, filed a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post for defamation.

According to the suit, “In a span of three (3) days in January of this year commencing on January 19, the Post engaged in a modern-day form of McCarthyism by competing with CNN and NBC, among others, to claim leadership of a mainstream and social media mob of bullies which attacked, vilified, and threatened Nicholas Sandmann, an innocent secondary school child.”

Sandmann was featured in a viral video that showed him in a confrontation in Washington, with a Native American man named Nathan Phillips. Sandmann and his friends were waiting for a bus, when they were approached and harassed by Phillips. But, some news outlets showed edited video, falsely making it appear as though the students started the confrontation.
