The whole situation that went down this week was heavily misreported. So what actually went down? Building up to the situation that mainstream media milked to death was back and forth from the self identified “Black hebrew Israelites”and the high schoolers from Covington Catholic High School Video footage has shown that they referred to the high school students as things such as incest children. This continued for about two hours.
Next, the infamous scene of Nathan Phillip facing off against Nick Sandmann occurred. Nick told the Washington Post "I did not see anyone try to block his path. He locked eyes with me and approached me, coming within inches of my face. He played his drum the entire time he was in my face. I never interacted with this protester. I did not speak to him. I did not make any hand gestures or other aggressive moves."
The problem that happened was that the media jumped to conclusions by viewing a 5 minute video and causing a commotion, not to mention, most of them only interviewed Nathan Phillips. With all things said, the media companies who covered this and milked this situation owe an apology to these high schoolers, especially Nick Sandmann.
