So far I'm only getting hits for Daily Wire, National Review, and a couple of local-type news stations.

29. EXACTLY!!!!

It disgust me how profitable Right Wing Hate, Christian Hate & Conspiratorial Hate has become in America! If a Right Wing Christian Conservative Conspiracy NUT JOB POS is not making 10's of millions of dollar$ selling their brand HATE on the TV/Radio/Books then they're suing someone for hurting they're feelings!!!

11. I hope WaPo and NBC don't cave in like CNN did.

That asshole and his smirk don't deserve any lawsuit winnings at all, imo.


He did not have to step right up into that Native American's face, after all, all the protester wanted to do was get by the asshole in order to go up the steps; but the smirking punk stood in his way!

13. What a great message that sends: "if you can't beat 'em, sue."

And sue for ridiculous and ungodly sums of money that you'll never make. That will learn 'em. What a bunch of pathetic snowflakes.

15. Maybe He Won This One

I think we're going to hear more about this kid. He's emboldened now, and definitely has an attitude problem. On the bright side, he's going to screw with the wrong person at the wrong time soon and get his teeth kicked in -- or worse. (Think of the path that George Zimmerman has forged.) Then we can all cheer.

16. Well shit, I'm gonna have to break ranks with you guys on this one.

Iím not saying that these kids were completely innocent in this, but it didnít play out like was originally reported. Even CNN did a report on a longer video surfacing that showed more context including racial and homophobic slurs used against the students.

27. Thanks for pointing that out

A reporter I usually respect (he was one involved with the earlier mysterious Trump server talking to the Russian bank) also piled on.

30. I was surprised that they identified a minor by name and location

In the vast majority of news stories, those types of things are generally not done.

19. I hope he buys a fast car. A really, really fast car.

A 2019 Corvette ZR1 aught to do the trick. Then he needs to take it out on some rural Kentucky back road and show everybody how fast he can go.

Sooner or later, this smug, smirking little shit will annoy someone bigger than him and they'll disabuse him of that "superiority" attitude.

that if it wasn't true, CNN would say so?

26. Probably cost of defense on CNN's part.

MAGA boy gets $10,000, maybe $20,000 tops. His lawyer gets a third of that. Not even enough for a new car.

28. CNN probably had already spent $200K on the case

with the prospect of spending at least $1 million if the case went to discovery and trial.
