[Reformation Charlotte] The Covington High School kid who was slandered and maligned on social media and mainstream news outlets settled with CNN in January while lawsuits against NBC Universal and the Washington Post are still pending.
According to a report filed with the District Court in Covington, Nick Sandmann and his attorneys plan to sue five more media outlets including the New York Times, CBS, ABC, Gannett, and Rolling Stone.
The lawsuits come amid Sandmann and other students’ appearance at the March for Life last year when a video taken out of context appeared to show Sandmann “smirking” at a Native American. The news outlets along with social media maligned him and labeled him such things as “white supremacist,” and “racist.” Reza Aslan, a CNN host was named in the lawsuits for calling Sandmann’s face “punchable.”
Elizabeth Warren was among those named in the lawsuits as well.
It should be noteworthy to mention that the high profile liberal Democrats mentioned in this lawsuit were not the only influential names to spread falsehoods about Sandmann. Highly popular and influential Southern Baptist leader, Beth Moore, also joined the chorus of liberals denouncing him, stating things such as “reeks of the vomit of hell,” and “glee in dehumanizing,” receiving thousands of likes and re-tweets on social media.
It is not yet known if Sandmann will go after Beth Moore for her libelous accusations against Sandmann but if he does decide to do so, it should be noted that many Southern Baptist leaders are known for this kind of behavior.
