How much should Nicholas Sandman win off the Wishywashington Post? (Thursday poll)
Well, this week we read the welcome news that Covington student Nick “the Smirk” will be suing the wishy-washy wibberal Washington “Oh Father I cannot tell anything other than a lie, Trump chopped down your cherry tree” soon-to-be Ex-Post. The sum he is playing for is 250 million dollars. One can but laugh. If he gets anything close to that, of course, it will cause tremendous sea-changes in the way the media work in similar cases in the future.
Maybe if it goes too far newspapers will be too scared to write anything that is not bland, and already old news and fully substantiated.
Now you can be the Judge in that trial. Here are some possible awards you can make in favour of Nick Sandmann, all in multiples of 25, to be consistent with what they are bidding for.
