The Kentucky student from Covington Catholic High School who was attacked by CNN and other media outlets, Nick Sandmann, gave a powerful speech at the Republican National Convention.
Sandmann Speaks at RNC
On Tuesday night, Sandmann bravely spoke out against his experience of being bullied and slandered by the mainstream media and CNN analyst continued with the network’s theme of abuse.
Former Bill Clinton press secretary and current CNN analyst Joe Lockhart showed hostility and pettiness, calling Sandmann a “snot nose entitled kid.”
I'm watching tonight because it's important. But i don't have to watch this snot nose entitled kid from Kentucky.
— Joe Lockhart (@joelockhart) August 26, 2020
Lockhart tweeted, “I’m watching tonight because it’s important. But i don’t have to watch this snot nose entitled kid from Kentucky.”
CNN Attacks Again
Sandmann faced an onslaught of abuse from the media, liberals, and some swampy conservatives when he was falsely portrayed in an incident that involved an aggressive Native American demonstrator.
He was with a group of his friends at the March For Life rally in Washington, D.C., in January 2019, when an activist, Nathan Phillips, began banging a drum in Sandmann’s face and called the boys “beasts.”
The young man eventually settled a $250 defamation lawsuit against the fake news networks CNN and the Washington Post.

Lockhart’s shameful comments against the young man did not go unnoticed and many slammed him for his actions.

As for his speech at the RNC, Sandmann told “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy: “The basis for my RNC speech was we need to hold this media more accountable.”
The Enemy of the People
“This is a media that completely ignored video online about the entire incident, and instead crafted the exact opposite that I walked up to Mr. Phillips, which isn’t true. It was never true,” he said. “And someone had to do something about it.”
“I would have given this same exact speech at the DNC if the Democrat National Convention actually cared about holding the media accountable,” Sandmann said. “But I haven’t seen that, and they never invited me to give such a speech. So, I used the platform I had.”
It is very clear by CNN analyst Lockhart’s unnecessarily cruel comments towards the kid, that the network certainly has not and probably will never learn its lesson.
