The Washington Post is the latest news organization to settle a defamation lawsuit launched by Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann over its botched coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder that had portrayed the Kentucky teen as the aggressor.
Sandmann announced the victory on Twitter.
"On 2/19/19, I filed $250M defamation lawsuit against Washington Post. Today, I turned 18 & WaPo settled my lawsuit. Thanks to @ToddMcMurtry & @LLinWood for their advocacy. Thanks to my family & millions of you who have stood your ground by supporting me. I still have more to do," Sandmann wrote on Friday.
This follows the multi-million dollar settlement CNN made with the teenager back in January.
Sandmann offered a not-so-subtle warning to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
"We have settled with WAPO and CNN. The fight isnt over. 2 down. 6 to go. Dont hold your breath @jack," Sandmann tweeted.

Nicholas Sandmann is a hero.
Amen to that.
Not the time to be arrogant, in my view.
Arrogant? For real?

Maybe we should just remain afraid of our own shadows, and say nothing?
Bankrupt the bastards.

“Not the time to be arrogant, in my view.”
Sorry, but that is a truly inane comment on several levels.
They effed him good, and you say be noble? Good for you, as a casual bystander and compassionate conservative......
We are way beyond that, by no choice of our own.
Watch Trump cover it, and Big Media will be goaded into saying SOMETHING.
The other Big Media outlets are getting worried.
CNN and WaPo are the beginning.
Spike it in their FACE.
Big Media all bullied a child and congratulated themselves for it.
Normally you'd be right, but not now. There's a time for everything.
Now is the time to start arrogantly SMASHING them - make them hate us even more. If I wasn't a Christian, I'd opt for raping their women - just to make a point.
Their hate is invigorating, and makes them dumb.
