From Covington To New Zealand Massacre, MSM Fails Spectacularly
From Covington To New Zealand Massacre, MSM Fails Spectacularly By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
The liberal media’s collective Trump Derangement Syndrome has provided many humiliating documented examples of their inability to “report the news” without consistently manufacturing outrage among their viewers, one of which now has both Washington Post and CNN being sued for hundreds of millions of dollars, each.
From the whole Covington Catholic student controversy, to the knee jerk media reports on the Jussie Smollet hate hoax, one would think the liberal media would think twice about jumping the gun on yet another “Gotcha” moment, where they misrepresent everything about a story in order to spin it negatively for President Trump and his supporters….. but no, once again, with their coverage of the New Zealand Massacre, which reportedly took the lives of 49 people and injured many others, they prove their inability to “report” news without trying to trash Trump and his supporters.
COVINGTON UPDATE – CNN SUED FOR $275 MILLION FOR DEFAMATION AND LIES
Long story short on the Covington Cathothic student Nick Sandmann and his attorneys’ efforts on his and his families behalf to hold the irresponsible media to account for their false, misleading and threatening reportage, we’ll do a very brief recap.
The Media Spin: A short, selectively edited video went viral, which made it appear as if a group of Covington Catholic students were “surrounding” and Indian elder, Vietnam Veteran, “taunting” and “mocking him,” where media outlets jumped into “Gotcha” mode, and started trashing Trump supporters, claiming the kids were racists, disrespectful, dangerous, with some saying the kid can be “punched” int he face, (CNN contributor said that).
The Truth The Media Ignored: The full nearly two-hour video was published immediately, showing that the entire narrative was false, the man approached the students, not the other way around. The students did not “taunt” or “mock” him, but stood still in the face of the Indian elder beating his drum right in the face of Nick Sandmann. Last but not least, the Indian elder was not a Vietnam veteran.
The media’s reporting endangered the students lives, caused a massive liberal Internet mob, including some journalists from large outlets, to threaten the students and their families, threaten their school, and attempt to destroy their reputations.
Fast Forward To Present Day: The attorneys’ for the Sandmann family filed a $250 million lawsuit against Washington Post for defaming and endangering the Covington students. This week they filed a lawsuit against CNN for $275 for bringing “down the full force of its corporate power, influence, and wealth on Nicholas by falsely attacking, vilifying, and bullying him despite the fact that he was a minor child.” (Page #2)
From the complaint, pages #2 and #3, we see the following:
12. Contrary to its “Facts First” public relations ploy, CNN ignored the facts and put its anti-Trump agenda first in waging a 7-day media campaign of false, vicious attacks against Nicholas, a young boy who was guilty of little more than wearing a souvenir Make America Great Again cap while on a high school field trip to the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to attend the January 18 March for Life.
13.CNN’s vicious attack on Nicholas included at least four (4) defamatory television broadcasts and nine (9) defamatory online articles falsely accusing Nicholas and his Covington Catholic High School(“CovCath”) classmates of, among other things, engaging in racist conduct by instigating a threatening confrontation with several African American men (“the Black Hebrew Israelites”) and subsequently instigating a threatening confrontation with Native Americans who were in the midst of prayer following the Indigenous Peoples March at the National Mall.
14. More specifically, CNN falsely asserted that Nicholas and his CovCath classmates were in a “racis[t]” “mob mentality” and “looked like they were going to lynch the Black Hebrew Israelites who were merely “preaching about the Bible nearby” “because they didn’t like the color of their skin” and “their religious views,” and that Nicholas and his classmates then “surrounded” one of the Native Americans, 64-year old Nathan Phillips, creating “a really dangerous situation” during which Nicholas “blocked [Phillips’] escape” when Phillips tried “to leave” the mob, causing Phillips to “fear for his safety and the safety of those with him, ” while Nicholas and his classmates “harassed and taunted” him.
