Multiple prominent journalists and lawmakers have been slapped with a lawsuit by lawyer Robert E. Barnes, who represents multiple Covington Catholic students.

For anyone questioning the legitimacy of the lawsuit, see below for one of the more egregious examples of an “activist journalist” blatantly inspiring their Twitter followers to acts of violence against minor students they had never met because of an incident they had not personally witnessed.
This may end up serving as a “teachable moment” for social media users needing to learn that tweets can in fact be very expensive.
According to the lawsuit, “These defendants called for the kids to be named and shamed, doxxed and expelled, and invited public retaliation against these minors from a small town in Kentucky. The defendants circulated false statements about them to millions of people around the world.”
All #CovingtonBoys I represent retain anonymity as John Does (Nick Sandmann, who went public, is not my client). The reason to protect their privacy is the threats they already faced. A key precedent we seek: you should not forfeit your privacy to sue for invasion of privacy.— Robert Barnes (@Barnes_Law) January 9, 2020
Earlier this week, CNN was forced to settle a multi-million dollar defamation lawsuit filed by Nicholas Sandmann over its own coverage of the same incident. The actual dollar amount of the settlement went undisclosed, but it isn't hard to imagine Nick Sandmann no longer worrying about paying for college, or anything for that matter!
It’s about time these horrible news agencies are held accountable for their lies.— Andrew Pollack (@AndrewPollackFL) January 8, 2020
Eventually the sheep will realize they are being manipulated and will turn them off.
