    The Boys in Red Hats debuts this month and the filmmakers boast that the narrative will 'piss off both sides' involved in the altercation.July 7, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – A new documentary will be released this month about the 2019 Covington Boys/March for Life controversy, though whether the filmmakers are interested in truth or fiction remains to be seen. Premiering July 16 at select theaters and virtual screenings in a handful of states, The Boys in Red Hats concerns the January 2019 confrontation between a group of teens from Kentucky’s Covington Catholic High School and Native American activist Nathan Phillips at...

    (CN) — Defamation and harassment claims brought by students at Kentucky’s Covington Catholic High School against CNN, the Washington Post and NBC were dismissed by a federal judge Wednesday after he found that none of the twelve plaintiffs had been defamed or unlawfully threatened. The suit stems from a confrontation at the Lincoln Memorial in January of 2019 during the annual March for Life, and followed on the heels of CNN’s settlement with fellow student Nicholas Sandmann. Sandmann’s tense encounter with Native American activist Nathan Phillips at the march went viral, sparking widespread ire on social media from commenters who...

    ATLANTA — Attorneys Sidney Powell and Lin Wood held a press conference in Georgia on Wednesday, where Powell told the crowd not to vote in the upcoming Senate runoff election, a message that directly contrasts with President Donald Trump’s call for Georgians to turn out to vote for Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. Powell, who is not affiliated with Trump’s legal team, told a crowd of supporters, “I think I would encourage all Georgians to make it known that you will not vote at all until your vote is secure, and I mean that regardless of party.” Powell’s...

    Nick Sandmann, who earned the left’s wrath for wearing a MAGA while listening politely as a crazed leftist beat a drum in his face at a Right to Life event, is in the left’s crosshairs again. This time it’s because he decided to attend university. Both an ACLU staffer and a professor at the university promptly collapsed into censorious, anti-Sandmann puddles of hatred. Sandmann, who we hope has enough CNN and Washington Post settlement money to buy and sell Harvard, has decided to attend Transylvania University, a small private liberal arts university in Lexington, Kentucky. Sane people will wish him...

    Many in the media faced legal consequences before for smearing teenager Nick Sandmann. But that isn’t keeping them from hurling insults at the teenager, following his RNC speech. On August 25, Sandmann, the Covington Catholic High School graduate who sued media outlets for defamation after their coverage of an interaction between him and Native American activist Nathan Phillips, spoke at the Republican National Convention. He drew attention to biased media and urged that journalists be held accountable. Following his comments, media figures and political activists called him everything from “snot-nosed” to a “tiny Nazi.”Sandmann, a Kentucky native, sued outlets...

    Covington Catholic graduate Nicholas Sandmann said Tuesday at the Republican National Convention that he refused to be canceled by a biased media. "I learned what was happening to me had a name. It was called being canceled," he said. "Canceled is what's happening to people around this country who refuse to be silenced by the far left. … Often, the media is a willing participant. But I would not be canceled. I fought back hard to expose the media for what they did to me, and I won a personal victory." Sandmann and his classmates were falsely accused in 2019...

  • A Lawyer’s Perspective: Sandmann Likely to Win Against Twitter, More

    Something rare just happened. A young person who doesn't follow the liberal orthodoxy defeated a major liberal news outlet. Two, in fact. How did these things happen following hours and hours of blistering news coverage? The case of Nicholas Sandmann and the resulting legal battle is one that scholars will be reading about and studying for decades. It might also be one that news organizations rue for even longer. I wrote about the topic on my legal blog and discussed some of the major cases of precedent prior to this one. While the government is restricted by law and precedent...

    Nick Sandmann just turned 18 years old. And he’s settling a $250 million lawsuit with major media outlets that libeled him. Let’s send him our congratulations and prayers. I was prepping Robert Oscar Lopez’s powerful piece on Mike Adams for publication when I realized something chilling. Reading how the left hounded that talented writer to suicide (if indeed he wasn’t murdered) I heard in my head the media headline that never ran. Thanks be to God. “Racist Ringleader, Nicholas Sandmann, Dead at 17.” That’s what the media mob wanted. They as good as admitted it. When powerful reporters call a...

    In their final encounter during the transition following the 2016 election, Donald Trump’s incoming national-security adviser surprised Barack Obama’s outgoing national-security adviser. Susan Rice writes in her memoir that the Michael Flynn she was dealing with had nothing in common with the firebrand she had watched leading a “lock her up” chant against Hillary Clinton at the Republican National Convention a few months earlier. Flynn, a retired general and the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, was respectful and subdued, eager for her advice. When Rice extended her hand and wished him the best of luck, Flynn asked her...

    The federal judge overseeing Michael Flynn’s criminal prosecution has directed the law firm that Flynn fired to reappear as an interested party in the controversial proceeding. On Thursday, that firm complied by filing a notice of appearance. U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan of the District of Columbia on Thursday ordered the clerk of the court to “add Covington & Burling LLP (‘Covington’) as an interested party in this matter and directed counsel for Covington to file a notice of appearance on behalf of Covington as an interested party.” John E. Hall, the chair of Covington Burling’s global litigation practice, submitted...
