3/1/19 WaPo Admits Inaccuracies in Its Reporting About Covington High School Students--Covington student Nick Sandmann filed a defamation lawsuit against the newspaper
The Washington Post issued an editor's note Thursday
admitting inaccuracies in its initial reporting on a January incident
involving Native American protesters, high school students from
Covington, Ky., and a group known as Black Hebrew Israelites. The note sweeps away the provocative details that turned the story
into a phenomenon, including the accusation that Covington students
prevented Native American activist Nathan Phillips from moving away.
"A Washington Post article first posted online on Jan. 19 reported on a Jan. 18 incident at the Lincoln Memorial," the statement
begins. "Subsequent reporting, a student’s statement and additional
video allow for a more complete assessment of what occurred, either
contradicting or failing to confirm accounts provided in that story —
including that Native American activist Nathan Phillips was prevented by
one student from moving on, that his group had been taunted by the
students in the lead-up to the encounter, and that the students were
trying to instigate a conflict. READ MORE HERE.
