CNN’s chief media correspondent and host of “reliable sources” Brian Stelter may have landed himself in some shit, according to the attorney of Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann.
Last week, Nick Sandmann announced that WAPO settled a $250 million defamation lawsuit he filed over its awful coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder that had portrayed the young teen as the aggressor.
This followed the multi-million dollar settlement CNN made with Sandmann back in January.
However, Nick Sandmann’s attorney Lin Wood has dug up a retweet from Brian Stelter of a tweet written by attorney Mark Zaid, who speculated about how much money Nick walked away with from the settlement.
“Those with zero legal experience (as far as I can tell) should not be conjecturing on lawsuits they know nothing about. What kind of journalism is that?” Zaid asked. “I’ve litigated defamation cases. [Sandmann] was undoubtedly paid nuisance value settlement & nothing more.”
Lin Wood accused the “Reliable Sources” host of breaching his network’s own confidentiality agreement with his client.
“This retweet by @brianstelter may have cost him his job at @CNN. It is called breach of confidentiality agreement. Brian Stelter is a liar. I know how to deal with liars,” Wood tweeted with a screenshot of Stelter’s retweet.
Sandmann got in there as well, tweeting “Brian Stelter just can’t learn some basic lessons over at CNN.”
“I can’t decide if it’s worse to be Brian Stelter or believe Brian Stelter. He was never in any court hearing or meeting I was. So why does he act like he knows anything?” Sandmann added.

CNN analyst Asha Rangappa couldn’t help herself and agreed with Zaid (the guy Stelter retweeted) as well.
“I’d guess $25K to go away,” Rangappa wrote.
This landed her in hot water as well.
Responding to Rangappa’s tweet, Wood wrote “Heads are going to roll at CNN or @N1ckSandmann is going to filing another lawsuit & reveal truth.”
It’s not over yet:
