Anti-Trump media touts fake news to whip up mob against pro-life kids
Thereâ€™s a reason I wait a day or two when the media decides to bash pro-lifers: They are not good faith actors, and they desperately want to believe the sorts of stories that suit their narrative about the pro-life movement. Iâ€™ve seen abortion activists fake hate crimes on themselves to a breathless media frenzy, with the ensuing quiet correction weeks later scarcely making a ripple. Iâ€™ve seen stories about peaceful pro-lifers getting physically assaulted by abortion supporters cast by the media as a â€śscuffle at an anti-abortion protest.â€ť And over and over again, Iâ€™ve seen media reports on events that I personally attended bear little resemblance to what actually took place.
And so when CNN, followed by the rest of the media lynch mob, reported that a bunch of MAGA-hat wearing kids from Covington Catholic School had swarmed an elderly Native American man at the Lincoln Memorial following the March...
Reuters wrote: A Kentucky teenager sued CNN on Tuesday for defamation, saying the cable network falsely conveyed to viewers that he was the "face of an unruly hate mob" confronting a Native American activist at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington in January.
The lawsuit, filed on behalf of Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann in federal court in Kentucky, seeks $275 million in compensatory and punitive damages over the videotaped incident in the nation's capital.

I haven't read any more about this lawsuit. I wondered if they settled out of court?

While Lifesitenews is hardly a neutral party in this incident, being RCC, the point should be well made at this point from them and other sources.
My wife and I watched this blasphemous, vile, slander- and vulgarity-filled video of more than an hour and 45 minutes of the real problem - Black Hebrew Israelites who were attacking and issuing threats to anyone within shouting range for likely 2 hours or more. These people are the Black version of Christian Israelites. They committed hate crimes against Native Americans, other African Americans, and the Catholic high school boys. No police to be seen anywhere despite an angry and practically violent attack on multiple bystanders from a variety of groups.
The other real problem was a lack of adult supervision by the high school. Those children should have been moved away from the five blasphemers.
Finally, the kid in the media crosshairs should have had more situational awareness and just backed up when approached by an elderly man with a drum. My guess is that he was simply reacting how he was briefed as to how to deal with counter-protesters. Where the kids failed was in not following this verse:
And have your conversation honest among the Gentiles, that they which speak evil of you as of
