Covington Catholic pro-life student Nick Sandmann settled with the Washington Post it was reported earlier today.
Sandmann’s lawyers filed an $800 million lawsuit against CNN, WaPo and NBC Universal after the outlets used a selectively edited video to make Nick Sandmann and his fellow Covington friends look like they harassed Nathan Phillips, a Native American who attended the Indigenous Peoples March in DC.
According to one of Nick’s attorney who contacted The Gateway Pundit — Nicholas Sandmann agreed to settle with the Washington Post because the Post was quick to publish the whole truth—through its follow-up coverage and editor’s notes.
The terms of the settlement are confidential.
Sandmann and his attorneys still have lawsuits still pending against:
- The New York Times
- The Rolling Stone.
Nick announced the settlement on Friday morning.
We have settled with WAPO and CNN.
The fight isn’t over. 2 down. 6 to go.
Don’t hold your breath @jack.
