    Attorneys for Nicholas Sandmann filed a $275 million lawsuit Wednesday against NBCUniversal over its coverage of the Kentucky teen, accusing the network of creating a “false narrative” driven by its “anti-Trump agenda.”

    The lawsuit, the third filed by the Sandmann attorneys against major media outlets, alleged that NBC targeted the Covington Catholic High School student in its reporting on his Jan. 18 encounter with Native American activist Nathan Phillips at the Lincoln Memorial.

    “NBCUniversal created a false narrative by portraying the ‘confrontation’ as a ‘hate crime’ committed by Nicholas,” said the complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky.

    The lawsuit alleged that the teen was “an easy target for NBCUniversal to advance its anti-Trump agenda because he was a 16-year-old white, Catholic student who had attended the Right to Life March that day and was wearing a MAGA cap at the time of the incident which he had purchased earlier in the day as a souvenir.”

    Good. All these "fake news" activists need to have consequences for their actions.

    In a 36-page ruling, U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman noted that the Post never mentioned Sandmann by name in its initial coverage of the incident, referring only to groups of "hat wearing teens." Bertelsman added that "the words used contain no reflection upon any particular individual" and thus could not be constituted as defamation. The judge also ruled that the newspaper used language that was "loose, figurative," and "rhetorical hyperbole" which is protected by the First Amendment.
    Lawsuits against CNN and NBC are still pending.

    Everybody understands what free speech is. And everybody's sick of media-outlets being absolved of defamation.

    The Founding Fathers would be on Sandmann's side. I think they presumed that a kid from Kentucky would file lawsuits against those outlets being 'of Kentucky'. Suing NBC-affiliates in Kentucky. Suing distributors of The Washington Post in Kentucky. By going-after HQ's in another State, the suits become Federal. Which complicates proving malice because it brings-in all 49 other States.

    NBC might've been caught off-guard if Sandmann's lawyers sued a Kentucky-affiliate for 250-mill.
