    Did I hear right that they are going after the Guardian in UK too. As a Brit I hope that's true. The Guardian is a media organisation I detest and I hope they get sued to the point of going out of business.

      Anything that doesn’t meet the corrupt media’s narrative will never get reported.

        This is what happens to lieing "fake news outlets". Hopefully, more news outlets will pay up, as they should. Lieing personalities should be fired and homeless for their life. This liberal assault needs to stop!!!!

                                Should get full 250 mil. Societal terror. CNN loves its panoptic scope and full spectrum assault powers so let them pay fully for each person that would still have a negative opinion of this student if he hadn’t fought back and miraculously won. Teach those lying (all the time) bastards a lesson. A dollar for each viewer in the US.

                                                        I work for a winery in Napa and there was a catholic event where the parents and lawyer were invited to come and speak. I did a tasting for them, and I did not know who they were until they told me. They were very genuine and honest people, and it was horrifying hearing what the experience has been for their son. Essentially his name is garbage because of the experience. I’m very glad to hear them having success. The lawyer was very kind and genuine as well. Good for them!

It was later released with video evidence that Phillips and other individuals went up to the boys who had a permit to march for a pro-life movement and started yelling at them. CNN released the name of a minor without his consent and covered news favoring Phillips side of the story before retrieving factual evidence.
