...while the truth is putting on it's shoes.

And so it was with the Covington High School boys and those who rushed to judgment against them:

I hope the Sandmann family sues CNN and the rest of the lying leftwing media for all they're worth.

I believe attorneys have already put a law suit in motion by sending letters to potential defendants.


snip:

McMurtry is joined in his legal campaign by lawyer L. Lin Wood of Atlanta. The letters tell the media outlets and individuals named to preserve all documents or recoded material associated with the incident, including emails connected with reporting the event.

If the accused issue a retraction, they probably won't face a law suit.

The retraction might be not very prominent though.

"Most states provide for a party defamed by a periodical to demand a published retraction. If the correction is made, then there is no right to file a lawsuit. "

Since you know so much about law and are claiming to know more than these attorneys why don't you call them or send them an email telling them they're wasting their time.

I'm sure they would like to have someone like you on their legal time so they won't be wasting time and money on frivolous lawsuits.

I'm merely noting what I see on line.  If you disagree, fine with me.  My guess is no one suffers any damages from this, as I stated earlier.  Lawyers at times try to market themselves by taking high profile cases they know won't amount to anything.

I could be wrong of course, and perhaps some individuals get tagged, we'll see.  I doubt anyone akin to CNN suffers any damage.

It would be grand if Sandmann was one of the President's special guests at the State of the Union Address....The libs would go crazier than they already are.....

that story changed early and often, until they found a tale that matched the video... 

the final one, if i understand it correctly, is the injun was attempting to defuse what he perceived as a aggressive action by the boys and by interjecting himself between the two groups.. 'perceived' being the operative word, which makes it a point that can't be fairly addressed.  

... if those boys can show actual damages because of the media, no matter if the media retracts or not they can be held liable- and the retraction (if any) actually assists them in that case.  damages have to be proven.
