He’s on a roll.
Nicholas Sandmann, the former Covington Catholic High School student who made news by being defamed by corporate media during a “standoff” with Native American protester Nathan Phillips in 2019, has scored his third settlement from a huge media company. According to a Tweet, NBC has settled with the 18-year-old for an undisclosed amount:
At this time I would like to release that NBC and I have reached a settlement. The terms are confidential.

Sandmann had previously reached settlements with CNN and the Washington Post.
The incident on January 18, 2019, on the Plaza of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., happened at the conclusion of the annual March for Life. It was filmed and the video went viral with leftist media painting Sandmann as a racist Trump supporter who antagonized the elder protester. But further video evidence showed that Sandmann did nothing other than standing there and smile as Phillips aggressively marched through the crowd to face off with Sandmann.
Sandmann has encouraged exonerated teen Kyle Rittenhouse to also sue corporate media for defamation. Judging by Sandmann’s success, it seems that Rittenhouse would be wise to heed the advice.
