Ya saw it coming, but apparently CNN, The Washington Post and other mainstream media outlets did not!
Covington High School student, Nickolas Sandman’s attorneys have filed suit against the Washington Post and CNN for “compensatory and punitive damages” to the tune of $250 Million and CNN for $275 Million. The suits are based on a video of Sandman wearing a MAGA hat while attending a March for Life rally. His “encounter” with Nathan Phillips, an Native American activist sparked the controversy. Another video surface a few days later to provide context.
