[Ed. – CNN bucking for another lawsuit.]
CNN political analyst and former White House press secretary for the Clinton administration Joe Lockhart called Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic High School teen who successfully settled a defamation suit with the network, a “snot nose entitled kid” after airing his address to the Republican National Convention (RNC).
CNN aired Sandmann’s address after the northern Kentucky teenager offered a damning indictment of the mainstream media’s coverage of his confrontation with Native American elder Nathan Phillips at the Lincoln Memorial in January 2019.
One year later, CNN settled a defamation lawsuit with Sandmann for an undisclosed amount stemming from its coverage of the encounter, wherein the group of students on the National Mall for the March for Life were harassed by members of the Black Hebrew Israelites.
