We have previously discussed the case of former Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann who was repeatedly and falsely called a racist in an encounter with a Native American activist in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Various media organizations have apologized or settled cases with Sandmann for their unfair coverage, including CNN.
However, when Sandmann spoke at the Republic National Convention, CNN’s political analyst Joe Lockhart again attacked him personally after he criticized how the media got the story wrong. CNN’s Jeff Yang also attacked the teenager and even suggested that his speech proved that he was not innocent. …
What happened to Sandmann was a disgrace for the media and he had every right to speak publicly about his treatment by the [news] media.
Sandmann is a pro-life kid who wanted to demonstrate against abortion. He sought to play a meaningful role in his political system, which is what we all have encouraged. Indeed, CNN has aired many such calls for young people to have their voices heard. He was in Washington as part of the annual “March for Life.” This is one of those voices.
Sandmann spoke about his horrific experience in being labeled the aggressor in the confrontation when all he did was stand there as an activist pounded a drum in his face. Sandmann said this morning in an interview that he only learned at 3 am in the morning on the bus home that he was being labeled a racist who attacked or harassed this activist.

Ann of Althouse’ top 4 reasons to vote Trump
1. He defeated ISIS! And he hasn’t gotten us into any new military adventures.
2. The Trump haters have gone so big for so long that it feels like extortion. I instinctively resist bullying.
3. The Democrats have given us a ridiculous candidate, a sort of mystery box. I don’t know what this entity is. Some composite of Democrats who will act through him?
4. The Democrats pressure us to follow orders from experts, not to understand the evidence and analysis. When it comes to questions involving race and gender — which seem to be all questions nowadays — they impose an ideological template about how human mind works without regard for any scientific method of analysis. I’m afraid of this irrationality presented as lofty learning, especially as it comes with a demand that we shut up and take orders.
