Supposedly because it was the washington posts' "protected free speech" to dox kids.
Or the judge got a nice big christmas bonus.
Early Sunday morning, I posted a “strongly worded” (Rich Lowry’s description) condemnation of the conduct, seen far and wide on video, of a group of high-school students at the conclusion of the March for Life on Friday afternoon. I was preachy and rhetorically excessive, and I regret it. The overheated post I wrote has been taken down. Let this apology stand in its stead, both here on the Corner and in the memory of readers who justifiably objected to my high-handedness.
“CNN agreed Tuesday to settle a lawsuit with Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann,” Fox 19 reported. “The amount of the settlement was not made public during a hearing at the federal courthouse in Covington.”
Buck Wild said:Sucks for the public interest that they settled...but it was probably the right decision for Nick and his family.
Days of Broken Arrows said:So, in that sense, this settlement is good. No one likes to lose money and having to settle will force all media sites to vet their stories better. Since about 2014, reporters have been writing these kinds of stories as if they're part of a Twitter pile-on instead of meant for actual news Web sites. This might put an end to that.
I just hope CNN fired the reporter who broke this non-story and cost them millions of dollars in lawyer's fees and settlement payments.
"Nicholas Sandmann agreed to settle with the Post because the Post was quick to publish the whole truth—through its follow-up coverage and editor's notes," Sandmann's attorney, Todd McMurtry, said in an email. "The terms of the settlement are confidential."m
Sandmann celebrated the settlement on Twitter.
"Thanks to my family & millions of you who have stood your ground by supporting me," Sandmann tweeted. "I still have more to do."
... Sandmann also filed lawsuits against several other news organizations, including CNN.
