Liberals have truly gone off the deep end.
And the ones in the mainstream media are destroying their credibility in the process.
Now their smear of the Covington Catholic kids is about to backfire in a breathtaking way.
Leftists who are obsessed with the issue of climate change have turned 16-year-old Greta Thunberg into a mascot for their movement.
Any criticism of her absurd climate scare tactics is met with instant backlash, and even harassment.
But months ago, these same Leftists tried to completely destroy the lives and reputations from children at Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky.
The main target of the Left’s outrage was Nicholas Sandmann, and his great crime was wearing a MAGA hat.
For that act, he and his classmates were hit with an unbelievable wave of negativity and slander.
They were accused of taunting and obstructing a Native American man at a protest event.
The unbelievable smear would’ve worked if there hadn’t been extensive video evidence proving the kids were completely innocent.
Sandmann struck back against the slander with a massive lawsuit, and a judge ruled that his case can move forward.
Daily Wire reports:
A federal judge in Kentucky ruled on Thursday that a $275 million lawsuit from Covington Catholic student Nicholas Sandmann against NBCUniversal can proceed in court, the third lawsuit from Sandmann that the judge has allowed to proceed.
“U.S. District Court Judge William Bertelsman dismissed parts of the lawsuit while allowing discovery on allegations that the network’s coverage defamed the teen by reporting that he ‘blocked’ Native American elder Nathan Phillips in a Jan. 18 encounter at the Lincoln Memorial,” The Washington Times reported.
Sandmann’s lawsuit could be a huge turning point.
It would be a wake-up call to the Democrat Media Complex that smears everyone and everything that stands in its way.
Sandmann and his cohort were doxxed, threatened, and essentially branded for life.
Former CNN host Reza Aslan even remarked that he wanted to punch Sandmann in the face.
But hey, it’s wrong to criticize Thunberg when she says her dreams have been stolen because of inaction on climate change.
These major news outlets may have no choice but to settle, because a loss in court would mean they would actually have to employ journalist ethics.
Do you think the media was irresponsible in its coverage of the Covington Catholic kids?
