Sandman’s Counterattack

Fresh from victory against CNN, Nick Sandman’s attorneys are widening their scope:

Lawyers for Covington Catholic High School senior Nick Sandmann reportedly will file lawsuits against five additional media companies this week for smearing Sandmann last year.

Sandmann’s lawyers submitted a status report with the U.S. District Court in Covington last week that showed that “they intend to file complaints against Gannett, ABC, CBS, The New York Times and Rolling Stone before March 9,” Fox 19

Functional representative government requires institutions that people can actually trust.

And thinking of all the institutions in our society that we just can’t trust…:

  • Federal law enforcement
  • the educational/Industrial complex
  • Academia
  • The intelligence community – both politically and in terms of high level analysis

…and, of course, our news media, is one of the more sobering exercises when one wonders what the future of our republic is going to be.

  1. I hope that he wins enough that his grandchildren’s, grandchildren won’t ever have to work again!

  2. Big Fake Media can foot the bill, but I I I wonder how much cash Rolling Stone can spare. Wouldn’t it be a treat if they had to shut it down?

  3. And thinking of all the institutions in our society that we just can’t trust […] and, of course, our news media,

    It’s been more than 30 years since I’ve had any trust in the media. That happened after my first run-in with them, where they “quoted” me as saying the exact opposite of what I actually said and refused to correct or clarify what I had said. That led to a bit of a minor kerfuffle in the dept, but when I explained what I actually said, the chair was very understanding, since it had happened to him more times than he wanted to say.

  4. If the judgment is big enough, maybe the kid will OWN Rolling Stone. Fire all the Libs and Progs, transform it into a conservative alternative to Newsweek and Time and People.

  5. Re: reasons not to trust the media – that should have started with their reportage of the TET Offensive
    its not like we haven’t known for a while whose side they favored.

  6. Mac;

    Great points re: media coverage of TET.

    Going back to WWII, the media, especially the Slimes, has probably been responsible for the deaths of more U.S. soldiers than will ever be realized.
