CNN's chief media correspondent Brian Stelter is under fire according to the attorney of Nicholas Sandmann of Covington Catholic High School.
Sandmann settled his defamation lawsuit with The Washington Post for $250 million. This was due to the botched coverage of the viral confrontation between Sandmann and a Native American. Sandmann settled with CNN back in January.
Lin Wood, the attorney of Sandmann, found a retweet from Brian Stelter that speculated how much money the teen walked away from the settlement with.
"Those with zero legal experience (as far as I can tell) should not be conjecturing on lawsuits they know nothing about. What kind of journalism is that?" Zaid asked. "I've litigated defamation cases. [Sandmann] was undoubtedly paid nuisance value settlement & nothing more."
Wood accused Stelter of breaching the confidential agreement between CNN and Sandmann.
"This retweet by @brianstelter may have cost him his job at @CNN. It is called breach of confidentiality agreement. Brian Stelter is a liar. I know how to deal with liars," Wood tweeted and accompanies it with a screenshot of the retweet.

Sandmann took to Twitter to take a shot at Brian Stelter questioning whether it's worse to be Brian Stelter or believe Brian Stelter.
I can’t decide if it’s worse to be Brian Stelter or believe Brian Stelter.
He was never in any court hearing or meeting I was. So why does he act like he knows anything? https://t.co/2QdUuH5bkZ

Stelter wasn't the only CNN employee in on this as CNN analyst Asha Rangappa chimed in with her estimate on what it cost for Sandmann to go away.
The far-left news outlets made some costly mistakes after the exchange between Sandmann and the Native American man. Did they learn a lesson? Time will tell.

Over the weekend in Aurora, Colorado, the Black Lives Matter protesters proved once again how terribly violent creatures they are.

HIDDEN CAMERA: Hollywood Actor Gets Visit from Secret Service After Making Threatening Tweet
If you were wondering how deep Trump Derangement Syndrome can run, well look no further than this.
The sad truth is that most liberals hate President Trump so much that they end up making threats against either the President, his family, or his supporters. None of which are acceptable in a civilized society.
Spurs’ Gregg Popovich: BLM Critics are 'Just Ignorant'
On Monday, San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich declared that those who are "offended" by the marxist Black Lives Matter movement are "just ignorant."
“It’s no different for me than it is to anybody else who cares about justice and who can be empathetic to the fact that justice has been denied to a group of people for far too long. And enough is enough,” the coach ranted. “Everybody’s tired of it, especially the group that has been degraded and savaged for so long. People who don’t understand Black Lives Matter or are offended by it are just ignorant.”
