    I realize it won't, but I wouldn't mind it it bankrupted them. All of them. Maybe whoever filled the void would understand you can't just make sh!t up.

    Be nice if it would be a wake up call for what passes as "journalism" as well, but I won't hold my breath.

    Do y'all hoping the Wapost goes bankrupt over 1 lawsuit realize it is owned by Jeff Bezos?

    Of course you do....that's why everyone on the Fuge cancelled that Prime membership back when this whole thing broke.....

    Granted... I was a bit taken back with the numbers, as I remain unconvinced that $250 million worth of damage was done to this kid. But I would have no issue with all of mainstream media having to pay up for the misleading and insanely biased news they are putting out there.

    I would blame a good deal of the civil unrest we are currently seeing, on a one-sided, biased, agenda focused reporting of the news. Completely intentionally misleading, if not dishonest all too often.

    $250M is justbwhat the kid sued for.... it was settled for an “undisclosed amount.”

    Wapo could have only paid $500k for all any of us know.

    Guess I read what I wanted to read. "Washington Post Settles $250 million lawsuit." I read it and assumed that was the settlement...


    I hope they paid enough to sting a bit... CNN already settled as well... Interesting on how little coverage there was???

    I know you're being hyperbolic, but it's pretty clear he and his lawyer are smarter than settling for anywhere close to $500k on a $250 million suit.
