The Sandmann Cometh For NBC
NBC became the third media-news outlet to settle a defamation lawsuit with Nick Sandmann over coverage of his confrontation with a Native American elder near the Lincoln Memorial in 2019. Sandmann has already settled suits with CNN and The Washington Post. Terms of the NBC settlement are confidential.
Sandmann, then a 16-year-old from Covington, Ky., also has pending lawsuits against The New York Times, CBS News, ABC News, Rolling Stone and Gannett. Sandmann filed the suits after the media outlets wrongly portrayed him in a viral video of the confrontation following the March For Life rally. Here’s more on the story from Vee.
