#1 EXCELLENT! It almost makes me think we have real justice in this country. Almost.

#2 Assuming the settlement was for more than peanuts, young Nick now has a war chest to go after the remaining defendants. Extensive discovery anyone? And wouldn't it be fun if he took one of the remaining defendants to trial instead of settling?

#3 There was a Covington Catholic chaperone who was interviewed the day after the event with Sandman and Phillips. She was interviewed on WLW 700 radio by a person by the name of Sterling. Sterling was a hostile interviewer, she stood for Sandman, cogently and methodically laid out the events as they happened and stated the media was lying. I hope he has something for her. Nothing for the Principal at Cov Cath.

#5  CNN paid Sandmann $25m.

Is that thousands or millions, Lumpy Mussolini7603? I’ve seen it used both ways.

#6 Also, yours is the first hard number I’ve seen for the CNN settlement amount — where did you see it?

#7 Millions. WaPo sugar daddy Bozo(s) personally makes about $1m per hour.

Sandmann already pocketed 2/3ds of the CNN settlement. He should not have settled w Bozos/WaPo

#8 I'm hoping this encourages more people to go after all these outlets.


If they can't be destroyed, at least bleed them.

#9 Bezos has deep pockets. Pick em. Others, not so much. Bleed em

#10 Thank you for clarifying. $25million — as the first of six law suits — is an awful lot for a middle class kid heading off to university, even if it is petty change for Mr. Bezos.

Mr. Wife points out that while that is pocket change for Mr. Bezos, it is still a distressing amount for the Washington Post bottom line, so it will resonate.

#14 Thanks, magpie. I sorta remember this from years ago but it's one of those things that should be chiseled in stone, at least it will be with me now. It'll be interesting to see probabilities versus outcomes

A slight aside, but I spotted what might be a bitchin' arbitrage opportunity if I could figure out a way to make it happen. I'll do a post on it for tomorrow.

#15 lord garth submitted Fox19’s article on the subject, commenting

The WaPo and the others initially blamed Sandmann for the incident, editorialized against Catholics, etc. Then video clearly showed otherwise and research showed that Nathan Phillips, the 'indigenous' person was not a war vet and was a professional protestor.

#16 At least (as far as we know) that this professional protest is not lobbing Molotov cocktails other projectiles at the police, property, etc.

Hopefully there is a Bubba involved somewhere.
