Media Miscreants Sued for MILLIONS Over Covington Catholic School Coverage

Justice is on the minds of Covington Catholic School student Nick Sandmann, but political observers will be keen to hear testimony from the mainstream media on their Trump-era decision making protocols.

There was once an inherent responsibility within the mainstream media, but, with each passing day, that distinction seems to be eroding.

Much of this belief came back before the days of CNN and others, who are little more than “infotainment” channels competing for your emotional response in order to sell advertising.  The salaciousness and sensationalism have strong-armed the driver of this metaphorical car, and have relegated the facts to be middle seat in the back.

So when a group of teenagers from Covington Catholic School were being targeted in Washington DC months ago, the progressive press paparazzi got to work spinning a single photograph as a tale of bigotry and hate.

In fact, the photo in question showed a young man awkwardly attempting to convey stoicism in the face of loud, older protesters who took umbrage with his red hat.

Now, the young man at the center of the controversy has taken umbrage with his portrayal, and is now suing the media outlets who defamed him.

Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann’s attorney is suing NBC Universal for $275 million.

Sandmann’s lawyer says the NBC Universal media corporation “created a false narrative by portraying the alleged ‘confrontation’ as a ‘hate crime’ committed by Nicholas.”

“Today, @LLinWood and I filed a $275,000,000 lawsuit against NBCUniversal on behalf of Nicholas Sandmann.  The facts of the suit show the anti-Trump narrative NBC pushed so hard,” attorney Todd V. McMurtry posted on Twitter.

While we should all hope for justice in Sandmann’s case, there will be a particularly keen interest in the court proceedings, specifically in the potential of testimony from NBC officials regarding their decision-making process in covering the story in the manner they did.

Yovanovitch Testifies In Impeachment Hearing Of Being ‘Kneecapped;’ Trump Says Everywhere She Worked ‘Turned Bad’

Published

Former ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch decided to do a little bit of finger pointing during her testimony during Friday’s impeachment hearings, targeting Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and discussing her sudden removal from her diplomatic post. President Trump returned fire and stated that every place Yovanovitch worked “turned bad.” Check out the details from Fox News: During her appearance, Yovanovitch, a career diplomat who served both Republican and Democratic presidents, relayed her story of being suddenly recalled by Trump in May, saying she believes Giuliani played a key role in telling people she was not sufficiently supportive of the president. “I do not understand Mr. Giuliani’s motives for attacking me, nor can I offer an opinion on whether he believed the allegations he spread about me,” Yovanovitch said. “If our chief representative is kneecapped, it limits our effectiveness to safeguard the vital national security interests of the United States,” Yovanovitch said. After the hearing started, Trump began attacking her, tweeting, “Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad.” He added, “It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1195356198347956224 As the impeachment hearing kicked off on Friday, the White House released a new transcript of the president’s initial phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The transcript showed the president agreeing to meet with Zelensky — without any sort of preconditions — in the first official phone call between the two world leaders. Devin Nunes, ranking member of the Intelligence Committee read the whole letter during his opening statement. A separate call that happened between Trump and Zelensky is what started the impeachment inquiry, and the GOP is saying this new transcript helps solidify Trump’s argument that he didn’t do anything wrong in his conversation with the Ukrainian president-elect. Yovanovitch’s removal from her post as the ambassador to Ukraine is…

Planned Parenthood Puts On Pole-Dancing Fundraiser For All-Ages, All-Genders; Includes ‘Pleasure Education’

Published

on

Planned Parenthood’s Northwest and Hawaii political action group is putting on an event entitled “Femme Fest” in Olympia, Washington, which is being offered and opened to “all genders and ages,” which will feature “clitoris and pleasure education” workshops and a “Wicked Sexy Pole Dance Showcase.” Here’s more on the event from TheBlaze: “Join Pilates at Play and Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest & Hawaii as we celebrate our sexuality and enjoy an irreverently playful night of fundraising, fitness, sex talk, and exotic pole dance performances,” an announcement for the event reads on Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s website. The fundraiser comes after a recent school board vote in the nearby Battle Ground school district to scrap a comprehensive sex education curriculum that many feared promoted an LGBTQ+ agenda. In fact, the board not only suspended its use of the specific sex education curriculum under fire, known as FLASH, but eliminated the requirements for the district to teach sex education in general, unless required by the state. Presently, Washington law only requires that school districts teach about HIV and AIDS prevention. Planned Parenthood’s event will also have an educational portion comprised of sessions designed to teach attendees about making sex education something that’s mandatory in the state of Washington. Information about how to pleasure the “clitoris” will also be made available. Here’s a glimpse at the whole schedule: 4 – 5 p.m.: Pilates and Barre Class Sampler 5 – 5:30 p.m.: Sexy Floor Work Lesson 5:30 – 6 p.m.: The Art of Feminine Sensual Movement 6 – 6:30 p.m.: Clitoris and Pleasure Education with Planned Parenthood 6:30 – 7 p.m.: Sex Ed in Washington State Informational with Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii 7- 9 p.m. Wicked Sexy Pole Dance Showcase presented by Pole at Play LifeSiteNews reported that this isn’t the first…
