Nick Sandmann’s attorney, Lin Wood, has just released a new video about the lawsuits he and Sandmann are filing against CNN and the Washington Post.
In the video Lin Wood makes the case that no one’s reputation is safe until they get justice from these media companies that “recklessly spread lies about a minor to advance their financial and political agendas”.
Here’s the video:

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I began watching it, but found the video to be quite compelling.
We were all there when this happened. Instead of responsibly pursuing the truth, these media organizations spread lies about Sandmann and his fellow students and turned so much of the country against him when they did absolutely nothing wrong.
Even after the truth was revealed, it had little impact as many people already hated these kids. And trying to get the media organizations to admit the truth was like pulling teeth.
I’m not an attorney but it does look like, especially the way Lin Wood is framing this, that he’s got a great case against both CNN and the Washington Post. And I hope he makes them pay through the nose for the damage they’ve done to Sandmann and his reputation. Someone has to hold them accountable.
