Here Are the 50 Celebs, Reporters & Others the Covington Kids’ Lawyers Just Officially Targeted BY C. DOUGLAS GOLDEN – Western Journal
TDC Note – Who knows he may actually get some traction and make something positive happen. Anything’s possible.
In the wake of a short, out-of-context video put up on Twitter about a confrontation after the Jan. 18 March for Life, pretty much everyone in the establishment media and politics decided to condemn a group of minors from Covington Catholic High School.
And then the facts started coming in.
For the most part, users who criticized the teenagers started running to delete tweets and scale back their remarks, if not retract them completely. Some didn’t, and now they could end up in court.
According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, over 50 individuals who went after the Covington kids and didn’t retract their statements will potentially find themselves in court after lawyers for the most visible of the students “sent letters to media outlets, individual journalists, celebrities and Catholic organizations as the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits.”
The letter from lawyers representing high school junior Nick Sandmann were sent to individuals and organizations ranging “from presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren to actress Alyssa Milano; individual journalists including Maggie Haberman, Ana Cabrera and David Brooks; national media outlets like the The New York Times, CNN, GQ and TMZ; and the dioceses of Covington and Lexington as well as the archdioceses of Louisville and Baltimore.”
“The legal counsel representing Nick and his family, Todd McMurtry and experienced libel and defamation lawyer L. Lin Wood of Atlanta, have said they will seek justice for the harm allegedly done to the teen,” the paper reported.
Others who will likely be included in the suit will be NBC’s Chuck Todd, Newsweek writer/full-time weirdo Kurt Eichenwald, Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, MSNBC host Joy Reid and actor/newly minted socialist Jim Carrey.
