A CNN analyst faced a growing backlash on social media Wednesday morning after labeling Nick Sandmann -the Covington High School student who spoke at the RNC- a “snot nose kid from Kentucky.”
“I’m watching tonight because it’s important. But i don’t have to watch this snot nose entitled kid from Kentucky,” said analyst Joe Lockhart.

“I look forward to the day the media returns to providing balanced, responsible and accountable news coverage,” Sandmann told the Republican Convention.
“I believe we must join with a president who will challenge the media to return to objective journalism,” he added.

“Mr. Sandmann was portrayed in reports, based on incomplete videos and still photographs, as a MAGA-hat-wearing racist bullying an American Indian activist. But when fuller video of the incident at the Lincoln Memorial emerged, Mr. Sandmann and his classmates were clearly being baited by Nathan Phillips and by an unrelated Black-racist group,” reports the Washington Times.

MUST SEE: Covington High School Student Nick Sandmann vs MEDIA GIANTS
Attorneys for Nick Sandmann confirmed this week a second, major lawsuit against CNN for their “reckless” coverage of the Covington High School student; releasing a video highlighting the young man’s ongoing legal battle against massive media giants.
“Last January, 16-year-old Nick Sandmann was falsely targeted, attacked, vilified, and threatened. The Washington Post -owned by the richest man in the world- led the print media’s false attack’s against Nick’s reputation,” states the video.
“CNN led the broadcast media’s charge against Nicholas. Both recklessly spread lies about a minor to advance their own financial and political agendas. Despite raw video debunking the false narrative, the Post and CNN doubled-down on their reckless lies,” adds the narrator.
“How long will we allow these media giants to tear at the fabric of our lives to further their own agendas? Will they ever be held accountable? Yes. They will,” the video concludes.
