Covington Catholic students handed CNN the last letter they ever expected

CNN rushed to smear Covington Catholic students who wore MAGA hats after the March for Life.

They tried to claim Covington students were abusive and racist.

But CNN was just handed a letter that could cost them big time.

Even after the full video came out showing it was professional protesters who tried (and failed) to provoke Covington Catholic students, CNN still tried to push the narrative that the students were racist.

Other media outlets and celebrities jumped on the bandwagon.

The high school students received death threats from to the outrage mob ginned up by the media and Hollywood celebrities.

Now everyone who slandered the students could be subject to a new lawsuit.

Lawyers for Covington student Nick Sandmann and his family said Friday they are sending letters to those who attacked, threatened, and smeared the students as the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits.

The list includes everyone from Senator Elizabeth Warren to actress Alyssa Milano, CNN, The Washington Post, and even a number of Catholic dioceses just to name a few.

The Daily Caller reports:

The legal team behind Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann are sending letters to various media organizations, celebrities and politicians it says completely misrepresented the confrontation between the teenager and Native American activists last month and potentially defamed their client.

In a story first reported Friday by The Cincinnati Enquirer and confirmed Sunday to The Daily Caller by lawyer Todd McMurtry, the letters have been or will be sent “over the next couple of days” to media organizations like CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post. Celebrities and politicians like Jim Carrey, Alyssa Milano, Bill Maher and Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren are also on the list.

It is the first step in a potential and far-reaching libel and defamation suit that McMurtry, of the Hemmer DeFrank Wessels law firm in Ft. Mitchell, Kentucky, says would be “a significant and unique lawsuit.”

The media was unsuccessful in bringing down Brett Kavanaugh with made up allegations.

So they turned up their attacks even more to try to take down a group of innocent Catholic high school students.

But that’s blowing up in their face.

Now, the Covington students may get their justice.

    Of all this B.S. about “Blackened Face Acting” ; I haven’t heard one word about “Al Jolson – from the Vaudeville days. I=Why not?????

    • gandolf says:

      Sweet William because there were hundreds of thousands of black face being done long before the Civil War and up to modern times. The Problem now is that after 1964 and the passage of the Civil Rights Act it became a no, no.

    • Sheron says:

      McMurty, kick their lying asses. Everyone of them. Those Covington boys need to go to college on all the liberal lying slugs dime. Excuse me, their millions. They all need new cars also. How can they get to their classes? I was really disappointed with the chaperones guiding these fine young gentlemen. They need to get some gonads. Why they never stuck up for the kids, I don’t understand.

    • Diane L Revard says:

      I am so glad that they aren’t letting this go. The media was terrible to those kids. All they did was smile and enjoy the music. I hope they sue the pants off anyone who slandered their names. That really was terrible how they ran with it. And the kids were innocent of anything negative. I hope their parents don’t rest until they see it through. God bless them. Our prayer are with them all.

        Hollywood and the rush to judgment news need to be held liable. Joy Behar is a perfect example of calling people out but forgot the skeletons in her own closet

  5. Diane Flenner says:

    That’s it Tommy Hawksblood live in the past . Yes we are aware of what Catholic schooling did to the Native people. In the past the Church did a lot of things wrong. But now the Church has apologized for all it’s wrong doing. And changed. But you go on with your bitterness and hate. Never mind figuring out where do we go from here. Go ahead dwell in the past and be a perpetual victim. Pick your heart up off the ground.

    • Bill Paine says:

      priest raped me when I was 9 years old – I never got an apology – not a thing – nada , except for the flash of fear when I see a priest in a cassock .I’m not bitter and I don’t hate people – but I do hate sin .

    • gandolf says:

      Diane Flenner it wasn’t the Catholic Church. It was the Protestant religions who did this. The Southern Democrats were Protestant and hated blacks, Jews and Catholics. The Northern Protestants and Southern Protestants wanted to convert the savages to Christianity.

  6. williaml says:

    Its a shame that we have new’s people that can not tell the truth. We should not have to hear false news as it is so miss leading. It is very harmful to the country as it gets people upset and ugly. There has to be a way to change this.

    • John says:

      The path the Covington lawsuit is the way to stop the libel!! You hit these B.S. throwers where it hurts; in their pocketbook!!

    • Richard R. Pope says:

      William,

      GOD Bless and GOD Help us,

  7. Karin says:

    What can we expect? Really? They condone the deaths of babies, they are going to allow convicted and released felons to vote, they are not having a lot of success attacking adults so have to go after kids? Where are the people who are standing up for OUR RIGHTS? If we do not do something we will have no rights left.

  8. Bobby Jay says:

    Sue them all into bankruptcy. Total garbage one and all.

  9. Don says:

    I like the idea of suing them fro enough money to send these kids and future kids to that school for say…..the next 50 years at no cost.

  10. John J says:

    There should be such an uproar over this lying harassment of these kids that every slimeball in the country slides back under their miserable rocks!

    Hope CNNis put out of business. Take every dime they have.

  14. Tomas Flores says:

    It is about time some legal action is taken against those who act in such a child like manner in creating a strong racist environment – but i was taught that anyone who cries RACIST is more racist than to one he or she is accusing

    We need more legal actions like this one for the students.

    that should make the left racists think twice before slandering or libeling anyone else..

  15. Good luck to the Covington students and their class action suit. No one deserves to be held more accountable than…”CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post. Celebrities and politicians like Jim Carrey, Alyssa Milano, Bill Maher and Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren” for their lies and faithlessness.

    • Gretchen says:

      I’m with you. They all need to get a comeuppance and maybe they will tell the truth or keep their mouths shut. Hollywood actors are just pretending to be someone else, because they are so stupid in their own skin.

      Let’s not forget Kathy Griffin she is also horrible

  16. allen says:

    Go t you tube and watch the fake news videos, 100’s of them. CNN, ABC, MSNBC, CBS, yes and even Fox news. Just type in CNN fake news, or any of the other conspiracy news media titles and it will blow your mind. A lot of those videos were from before Trump was even elected. It has been going on for a long time, only just now has reached the surface. All of the conspiracy news media ran with a fake news story from Buzzfeed and it was found out to be a fake story. It is time they were called on the carpet for their constant lies and distortions. I hope they go belly up. Those small town jurors hate the media for what they did and they will chew them up in court.

  17. Becky says:

    I went to Catholic schools from Kindergarten to 12th grade. I was very proud that I did!! You can’t have people defaming you without all the facts. These stupid Hollywood actors think that people actually listen to them because they know everything about everybody. Milano, Carey and the fake news outlets are the ignorant jackasses that can’t wait to bash a bunch of High School teenagers. Milano and Carey should stick with acting and stay away from politics, they are such idiots.

    The ONLY media having any CREDIBILITY or journalistic integrity is Fox News and the Soros led conspiracy to put them out of business is a true threat to American freedom and then Rule of Law once respected , cherished and admired but nothing now but a bad joke, The Haters and the tactics used against the Covington Kids are endemic and promoted by the Progressive Democrats and, I am an unaffiliated Voting, disabled Vietnam vet with a 52 year old degree in Government and in my opinion, if the Democrats CANNOT OR WILL NOT BE CIVIL, COMPROMISE , NEGOTIATE AND SERVE AMERICAN CITIZENS, THEY SHOULD BE OUTLAWED AS THE CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY THEIR ACTIONS SHOW THEM TO BE.! They follow the Marxist Dialectic, violate their SWORN oaths of Office, try to end the 2nd Amendment and limit the first and others, insist on voter registration inviting massive FRAUD by illegals which fits their Anti AMERICAN citizen agendas attacking Seniors,Veterans, , the shrinking Middle Class and their nuclear families while promoting an LGBT agenda in even pre-schools which by any “normal,” or moral standard is just plain sick since kids are not mature enough to make such decisions but will be when they HAVE matured both mentally and physically enough to do so, What has happened to the kids at Covington is nothing short of Communist attacks on Traditional religious beliefs and the nuclear family seeking CONTROL of every aspect of the life of the individual and ALL promoting such in contravention of the Constitutional freedoms and Rule of Law SHOULD be held both responsible and accountable for these unwarranted attacks; AND I TRULY HOPE THEY ARE!

  20. Kathleen says:

    It looks like the only people with guts enough to stand up for themselves are the Covenington H.S. Students. Sue them all!! Show the media, Hollywood actors etc. that you can’t defame anyone without prof of wrongdoing.

  21. Larry says:

    I hope the kids sue them for everything they have

  22. John says:

    They should have this court time video recorded so we, the people, can actually see justice take place! All too often you never hear what justice was taken in the end!

  23. Thomas Donkor says:

    They all deserve to appear to court for the public to know and see how the will answer to their defense. Enough is enough of these rubbish and nonsense. They think it is their free speech to say anything. They run their mouth okro or okra soup.

  24. bill m says:

    It’s a shame we all know the outcome of charges. It will be tied up in the legal system for years, or at least until the public has forgotten what took place. There will be some cases surface, but will not have any media coverage and will fade away. Hopefully, the students will not be affected now or in the future more they already have been.
    Will the media and individuals that caused this situation, change, maybe in the short term, but they will return to their headline grabbing false news as soon as they think they will get away with it.

  25. Bill says:

    They can sue CNN all they want but they won’t get much because CNN ain’t worth a sh – -.

  26. That video shows the ignorance of boys growing up in a prejudice school. If I would of did something like to my father I would have been in the Hospital for a week. Do you know anything about what the Catholic schooling did to the Native people? I am sure as hell you do not.

    • Liz says:

      You are out of your mind!

    • Theodore Perry says:

    • Bill says:

      I would say you were the ignorant one! did you see the entire video of what happened? And do you know what the native people did to the Catholics or anyone else they could in the times before? Your no more innocent then the whites so cry me a river, as it goes past I’ll piss in it!

    • John Last says:

      Hug a root. ALL that is probably “hearsay”.
      Why don’t you “enlighten” all of us “p” faces?

    • J says:

      I DO know what the Catholic school did to the Native children. They attempted to remove their culture, heritage and beliefs in cruel and vile ways, but they failed!

      What was done then was wrong! What happened here is just as wrong. Letting the media get away with their perpetual lies with impunity is also wrong and it’s way past time they were held accountable.

    • gunsmoke says:

      TommyBoy, you are a flake. Did you ever consider what you would have done if harrassed and threatened by a group of idiots? I kinda think you would have stunk up your diaper. These students may be a little arrogant, BUT they held their ground. That old man beatin’ the drum surely could have diffused the issue by quitting that blam blam and moved on. Obviously you were ruled with an iron hand, well I was too…to a certain point. Perhaps you are just venting because you are siding with that Native American…and rightfully so, BUT don’t pass judgement on a group because of what you saw on that short clip. Events surrounding that situation tell more of a story. And don’t go bring in religion as the culprit just because of your foul taste from what heard, or maybe experienced….but this event’s outcome may have had many conditions surrounding it. Initially I felt maybe they (some) appeared arrogant; but in more reading into it, they held their ground. Hooray for them. Now let’s get some justice from the truly guilty parties!!

    • Joe Feeney says:

      Ditto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • walter siebert says:

      I’ll give you the benefit of doubt , you should do a little research before you pass judgement on those students.

      The old race crap. There was no prejudice by the high school boys. The prejudice came from the black group and the activist native who got in the boy’s face. Brains are awesome–try finding some.

    Unless that letter said, We \are sorry for being such racist jerks, and s we will repnt, it deserves the circular file.

    • Bill says:

      I would say it did not, the boys did nothing and were very tolerant. this is the fault of the others shown including the old Indian drumming, you know he comes over to them don’t you, they did not approach him! The one boy just stood there and smiled at him as he beat his drum in the kids face, so I would say he for one should be apologizing to the boys now for the media that tried to spin this off-center again they deserve to be sued and this is a good example of justice if the boys attorneys can collect! May I suggest you watch the entire video!

  28. Rita k says:

    Fake News media and has been Hollywood actors need to pay. Look at all the pictures and videos on social media and late night talk shows. Get everybody.

    What do you expect from a bunch of Lesbains and peter puffers

  31. lisalles says:

    Get each and every one of them who went after the boy, boys and school. Make an example out of them. Each one, individually. Do not settle with any of them. The public wants to see each person and entity brought to court and witness firsthand how these people and entities defend themselves against the lies, defamation and inciting violence they committed against these minors. And as the first cases begin to lose, the cases coming up will start to up their offers to settle….dont do it. Resist the money. Do not settle and do not ever sign a non disclosure agreement with any of them. Please also sue the freaking Indian and the black israelites.

  32. Gonaes says:

    America has gone bonkers and it’s time to put a stop to all these verbal attacks on people, young and elderly who are exercising their right peacefully, a few hefty cases of Libel and or Defamation run through the courts successfully would put a halt to this BS. PS. zap some of the MSTM and hit them with a libel case as well.

  33. Cookie says:

    Go for it and I hope they win a bundle. They only went after them because they are catholic kids. This jumping to conclusions and racism over everything has to stop. Smearing somebodies good name is very malicious. Get facts right the first time.

It can no longer be called “journalism” or hidden behind the 1st Amendment when the narrative is so obviously false and/or misleading.

Take away everything such that they don’t even have a pencil to write on a wall with. These people have done enough damage to America as it is, and should be stopped from ever doing it again. This is not a matter of opinion on their part, it is making statements as facts that they can not make, because they were not there.

    • Kerry says:

      Carl, 1 vote out of how many votes? If yours was less than 1% of the total of votes made, then, no, they are not going to take the time to post a less than 1% number. Being fair minded seems to be lost on you. I have seen where a “No” vote was posted because it was within the 1% rating level. Obviously, your 1 vote did not get above threshold, so it was not given in the poll results. Next time, recruit more “no” votes, you might get recognized. It would be nice if some of the jumping to conclusions involved real cliffs whose bottoms would result in real injury. That might cause those jumping to conclusions to think more, before jumping.

  51. Bob says:

The MEDIA is desperate for news and do not know what NEWS is so they put out anything anti-TRUMP to fill that void. I think they do not know what NEWS is anymore. They forget the check the validity their so called new and run with it ending up with EGG ON THEIR FACES.

  66. Steff says:

    Everyone regardless if they are a celebrity or MSM reporters or individuals who put libelous and scandalous information on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Instragram, et al need to be contained in this suit. If the attorneys need additional people’s identities (pseudo names) and the verbiage, I’m sure that there are plenty of us who would provide that information.
