Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann plans to sue CNN for at least $250 million over “direct attacks” and false reporting, his lawyer told Fox News.
High profile libel attorney L. Lin Wood discussed the lawsuit and decision to CNN in an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Life, Liberty & Levin” that aired on Sunday 10 p.m.
“CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes,” Wood told Fox News host Mark Levin
CNN couldn’t resist the idea that here’s a guy with a young boy, that Make America Great Again cap on. So they go after him
— Lin Wood, attorney
The media is continuously slandering Trump supporters and targeting them for wearing MAGA hats. Let this be a reminder to the left-wing media that fake news has its consequences.
Sandmann is a minor, not a public figure. CNN went after him with false claims causing reputational damage, no child should have to deal with this attack at such a young age.
CNN smeared a young boy over his support of the president, this goes to show that they will go after anyone who doesn’t share their ideologies and hate for the president, even if it means going after a defenseless teenager. CNN has stooped so low and they will have to face the aftermath of their consequence’s.
“Why didn’t they stop and just take an hour and look through the internet and find the truth and then report it?” Wood asked. “Maybe do that before you report the lies. They didn’t do it. They were vicious. It was false. CNN will be sued next week, and the dollar figure in the CNN case may be higher than it was [against] The Washington Post. This suit will be carried out today.
Opinion is protected by the second amendment, any media that stamps down on freedom of speech should be tried for their actions, weather left or right-wing. A nation that goes after freedom of speech is no longer a free nation.
