Covington Boy's Lawsuit Against CNN Moves Forward

Nicholas Sandmann’s lawsuit against CNN will proceed to discovery, a federal judge has ruled. This will be a devastating blow to CNN, which will now have all of its emails examined by lawyers for a severely wronged client.

Sandmann was one of the the high school student falsely accused of a racially-motivated attack against Nathan Phillips in Washington, D.C. Phillips was called a “Vietnam veteran” by the media, when in fact Philips was stolen valor. He never served in the Vietnam War and he was discharged from the military under circumstances suggesting a poor service record.

Sandmann sued CNN for lying about him.....

The key questions will be, when did (media outlet) learn the initial reports were utterly false, and did (media outlet) continue reporting the initial narrative after learning it was false (and for how long). When they doxxed Sandmann and how they described his actions as facts came out will also be very important. The "juicy" stuff, though, will be the internal, non-public communications - how (media outlet) people spoke of Sandmann, especially as they learned he was the target of racial harassment, not an instigator of or participant in racial harassment.

Does anyone recall the tongue bath the media gave not just to that Phillips guy, but to the Black Hebrew Israelites?  That's about as damning as the horrid treatment of Sandman.
