The Covington Kid is going to be massively
rich. His lawyers are suing Jeff Bezos WaPo
for $250 million. He won't get that much, but
he'll get a lot. The lawyers say this is just the
start of the media lawsuits. It was bound to
happen, the media is out of control with it's
lies.

Lawsuit is not going anywhere
It will be dismissed
To win, you have to prove the Post knew the truth and decided to lie
If the post simply reported on what info was available at the time, right or wrong, that's not actionable
Asking for 250 million just shows how dumb the lawyer is. Gee why didn't the lawyer go all in and ask for 1 billion lol

This poor kid is being used as a political pawn by all the adults in his life.

I'd love to finance a tour with him and David Hogg having a debate. We'll all make gazillions.
We'll get Paula Abdul, Howard Stern and Sean Spicer to toss softball questions and Heidi Klum ,just because.
It can culminate in a massive Airing of The Grievances followed by Feats of Strength.

The lawsuit appears to have enough substance that it will be settled out of court. The Post doesn't need persisting media attention on what it did wrong, despite any lawyerly arguments about its righteousness.

Wrong. The media jumped to judgement
without all the facts and wrongfully effected
the rest of this kids life. Lots more lawsuits
coming, it's an open and shut case. All they
have to do is play the videos of the wrong
conclusions the media jumped to, and then
show what really happened. The checks this
kid gets have so many zeros they will run
off the side of the check.

All of them will. Never seen a more slam
dunk case.

If he should be suing anyone, it's that Native American guy. His original interview is where the whole story started going off the rails. But his lawyers probably said, "No, we need to go after someone with money. It'll be an easy settlement."
