Revenge of the Smirk: Nicholas Sandmann Sues the Washington Post

Filed under: General — JVW @ 3:44 pm

[guest post by JVW]

To the surprise of no one, Nicholas Sandmann (along with his parents) filed suit in U.S. District Court, Eastern Division of Kentucky, Northern District, located in Covington, against the Washington Post Company, regarding what they determined was biased and skewed coverage. The suit requests compensatory damages of at least $50 million, and punitive damages of at least $200 million. The filing is viewable and/or downloadable here on Dropbox. It’s super long, and I have only read about 1/3 of it, so I won’t try to summarize the points here.

And since I am merely a layperson with reactionary opinions, I will leave it up to the experts here to weigh in on the plausibility of this suit.

My Thought Process for the Morning

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:21 am

Here’s a peek into my head this morning as I open the computer:

Oh look at this. BuzzFeed News says Roger Stone posted a picture of his judge next to a crosshairs symbol! Click.

Amy Berman Jackson Resized

Um yeah that’s not what he did. It’s just a picture of her in front of an organization’s logo. This is about as valid a complaint as that Sarah Palin stuff. That said it’s a stupid move by Stone to criticize his judge. And he has threatened people before. Is it worth doing a post about? Hey I know I’ll just do a post about how I thought about doing a post about it because the media bias is so extraordinary, but found I didn’t really care because the guy involved is so sordid, and I’ll post it as a stream of consciousness and wow that’s lame OK gotta go to work sigh publish
