The Covington Catholic controversy was one of the biggest balls dropped by the mainstream media this year and now they are set to pay for their massive mistake in cold hard cash. Several Trump supporting teens at the March for Life were harassed by protesters and the media saw a short snippet and with one of the boys smirks at an elderly Native American man and ran the story that these teens were being racist towards the older man and others nearby. This story was debunked in mere hours but many in the media still kept up with the false narrative and even doubled down. These teens are now filing a lawsuit against these outlets, CNN is being sued for over $250 million and the Washington Post is being sued for a similar amount.
