Washington Post issues editor’s note over early Covington coverage
By Tal Axelrod - 03/02/19 08:57 AM EST

The Washington Post issued an editor’s note Friday over its early coverage of a viral exchange between a student from the Covington Catholic High School and a Native American veteran.

The paper said subsequent evidence, including reporting, unsurfaced video and a student’s statement clarifies the interaction and either contradicts or fails to confirm The Posts initial stories.

“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,” The Post said.

The controversy began earlier this year when video emerged of student Nick Sandmann, who was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, and Nathan Phillips, a Native American elder, in a face-off in Washington while they were in town for separate rallies.

How timely.

And heartfelt. Basically they just used the opportunity to repeat the bogus charges.

I hope the kid gets every penny of what he's asking for.

Too late.... too late.

The comPost is trying to create an excuse for their defense that they can use in the defamation suit against them.

I don't think it's gonna work.

Can you say CYA
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

It offers about as much "coverage" as a piece of cellophane.
