Neighbors Sue Family Over Terminally Ill Son’s Playscape in Backyard

There are things good neighbors make sure they do. They watch out for one another. They make sure they (and their tenants) aren’t creating too much noise too late at night. They keep their property tidy. And they certainly don’t try to sue you over a playground in your own large backyard that’s been specially…

CNN Settles Lawsuit From Free Beacon Man of the Year Nick Sandmann

Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann scored a legal victory against fake news after CNN agreed to settle a lawsuit alleging that the network falsely tarred the teenager as racist.

The settlement was announced at a Tuesday hearing at the federal courthouse in Covington, Ky., according to Cincinnati FOX affiliate FOX19. A source at CNN confirmed the settlement to the Washington Free Beacon but said that details have yet to be finalized.

“The case is settled,” Sandmann attorney Todd McMurtry also confirmed in an email. “We have no comment.”

Sandmann’s lawsuit charged that CNN’s coverage of a January 2019 confrontation between the student and Native American activist Nathan Phillips was false and one-sided, based only on interviews with Phillips and a selectively edited Twitter video. The full one-hour video taken at the March for Life contradicted Phillips’s claims that Sandmann and his fellow students approached him, “blocked” and “surrounded” him, and chanted “build the wall.”

Sandmann, a Washington Free Beacon Man of the Year, filed the lawsuit in March 2019, arguing that CNN defamed him as part of a larger campaign against supporters of President Donald Trump. Attorneys for the 16-year-old Kentucky native sought $75 million in compensatory damages and $200 million in punitive damages “to punish and to deter CNN from ever again engaging in false, reckless, malicious, and agenda-driven attacks on children.”

Lawsuits against the Washington Post and NBCUniversal remain pending. Sandmann attorney Lin Wood told FOX19 that they also plan to file lawsuits against Phillips and Gannett, the publisher of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Nike’s Liberal Agenda Backfires as Ex-Employee Sues Over ‘Preferred Pronouns’

Lie down with liberal dogs, wake up with liberal fleas. Nike is one of the most identifiably left-of-center corporations in America, something that became abundantly clear this summer when it recalled a pair of shoes with the Betsy Ross flag on them because endorser Colin Kaepernick — a quarterback who hasn’t quarterbacked in several years…
