Judge Reopens Covington Catholic High School Student’s Defamation Suit Against Washington Post

Matt Margolis reports [1]:

On Monday evening, a federal judge in Kentucky reopened the $250 million defamation case filed by Covington Catholic student Nicholas Sandmann. The judge had previously dismissed the case in July, but is now allowing the lawsuit to proceed with a narrower focus.

Well, it’s about time. Amazing, what you have to go through to get leftists to admit they’ve gone over the line.

One need not look too deeply into this to see that the Washington Post’s reporting on this was absolutely biased. And frankly, the trends that we’ve seen coming out of the Post, the New York Times and for that matter the entirety of the supposed mainstream media is permanently biased against anything that doesn’t fit with the leftist manttra.

A comparison of the case of the Covington kids, v the case of our taking out someone who was unquestionably the worst of the worst in the world of Islamic terrorism, and how each is treated in the Press, tells the entirety of the tale…

The tragic part about all of this is that the mainstream media still doesn’t understand why nobody trusts them anymore.

Mollie Hemingway looks at these things and says [2] in part:

Corporate media have moved from at least projecting concern for reporting the actual news into unembarrassed political actors. That enables them to flamboyantly spin — as opposed to their previous method of subtly spinning — even major news with indisputable facts.

Mollie is writing specifically about press coverage of Donald Trump these last three years, but frankly there is no question whatsoever in my mind the quote above can be applied to anything the mainstream media “reports” on these days. the constant drumbeat of anti-conservative bias coming out of the mainstream media is undeniable.

Will this change things in the long run? Probably not. There’s far too much in the way of history, far too much in the way of momentum on this thing. But a successful lawsuit here would be a step in the right direction.
