Lin Wood, the fiery First Amendment attorney representing Covington Catholic High School Teen Nick Sandmann dropped a bombshell.
Wood, who conducted an interview with Mark Levin on Fox News Channel’s “Life, Liberty, & Levin” broke the news on the program which will air Sunday night on the network.
“CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes,” Wood told Fox News host and best-selling author Mark Levin.
CNN couldn’t resist the idea that here’s a guy with a young boy, that Make America Great Again cap on. So they go after him— Lin Wood, attorney
“They really went after Nicholas with the idea that he was part of a mob that was attacking the Black Hebrew Israelite’s, yelling racist slurs at the Black Hebrew Israelite’s. Totally false.
“Now you say you’ve seen the tape; if you took the time to look at the full context of what happened that day, Nicholas Sandmann did absolutely nothing wrong. He was, as I’ve said to others, he was the only adult in the room. But you have a situation where CNN couldn’t resist the idea that here’s a guy with a young boy, that Make America Great Again cap on. So they go after him.”
Wood continued: “The CNN folks were online on Twitter at 7 a.m retweeting the little one-minute propaganda piece that had been put out. … They’re out there right away going after this young boy. And they maintain it for at least two days. Why didn’t they stop and just take an hour and look through the Internet and find the truth and then report it? Maybe do that before you report the lies.”
“I’ve got some young, smart lawyers that are working hard as we can,” he told Levin. “Double-checking, and listen, when we file complaints, we’ve investigated it because we want to get it right. Maybe CNN can learn from that.”
As The DC Patriot reported an article here when The Washington Post was sued that Lin Wood shared on his social media platforms. I have a feeling this is just the beginning for the lawsuits on behalf of the Covington Teens.
