Unless you are an NFL ref, you have seen the fiasco sourrounding the students of Covington High and Nathan Phillips. Right after the story broke, Kathy Griffin tweeted that she wanted the high school students doxxed.

Even though that as the story has developed it has become clear that the students were not guilty of harrassing Nathan Phillips as originally reported, Griffin will not simply apologize and leave the kids alone. This is her latest idiocy:

We did not see the KID do anything racist, agreed
The KIDS? naw. Several racist comments and action
Misogynistic as well
Address the issues with the medias obsession to report anything egregious such as the Indian being a Vietnam VET along with numerous other inconsistencies just because of a hat. Plain and simple, they wanted a story to go after TRUMP because of their blind hatred, even if it meant harm to children, period.

I guess the kids told themselves to back to Europe right?

The media painted the picture and said, along with printed articles saying the man was a Vietnam VET. - That was FAKE NEWS.
There is a difference between a mistake and an intentional lie.

The group has been labled racist because the Vietnam VET is an Indian. Nothing the kids did was racist.- Again more FAKE NEWS.
The news media saying he is a Vietnam Vet is fake news, yet you say it and it is... an honest mistake?

Also, a bunch of white kids mocking the song of a Native American is racist. To say otherwise is incorrect. This is not an opinion. This is a fact.

There was no fight like you say. So more FAKE NEWS.
A fight does not have to be physical. The Black Israelite group was provoking them, and they were responding in kind.

The whole thing which shouldn't even be a thing at all was and continues to be a complete media/twitter fallacy. FAKE NEWS.
It should not have been a thing at all, you are correct. It became a thing because two groups of people were jawing at one another and a third group attempted to intervene. Portraying the Covington kids as innocent is incorrect.

In the original video that created the firestorm, what exactly did they say (you hear) them saying that was racist and or misogynistic? Please just stick to the original video.

The story pushed by the media and the originators of the selectively edited video was that the high school kids surrounded the indian, intimidated him and disrespected his. Also in this narrative was that he was a vietnam veteran.

Now lets take what we know to be truth. The kids did not surround the indian, he walked to them and into their crowd. The kid used as the target of the original story did not confront or do anything that was aggressive to the indian. The truth of his vietnam service is false, he never served any duty in vietnam.

So, nothing in the original story that garnered so much attention from the media and thus outrage from all those outraged ever happened. The story should have been protesters were on the steps of the Lincoln memorial and one of them confronted a group of high school kids.

The original story is FAKE NEWS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Trump has popularized the term fake news, but it is almost never applicable to mainstream news media. They occasionally get things wrong, but that is generally a misunderstanding, rather than an intentional fabrication. The term fake should only apply to intentional fabrications. Fake handbags, watches, money, stories, and news, but only when it is intentionally fabricated. These days, most actual fake news arises from the Whitehouse. Trump frequently acuses others of things for which he is far more guilty. The original story was real news, but it was misleading and a misunderstanding. When such stories are generated by reputable news outlets, they own up to their mistakes. I’ve seen plenty of coverage acknowledging the mistake; however rarely if ever has the Trump administration owned up to their fake news, so why such outrage about this mistake?

So we should ignore any information outside of the initial video that shows the Covington kids in a negative light? Why can we not utilize the new information to provide context?

Fake news
Fake news or junk news is a type of yellow journalism or propaganda that consists of deliberate disinformation or hoaxes spread via traditional print and broadcast news media or online social media.....Fake news is written and published usually with the intent to mislead in order to damage an agency, entity, or person, and/or gain financially or politically,[4][5][6] often using sensationalist, dishonest, or outright fabricated headlines to increase readership​



- Seth Rich, Uranium One = Fake News

Why? It was a deliberately fabricated set of stories meant to deceive the audience into believing something to be true that wasn't.​

- Phillips being a Vietnam vet = Not Fake News, an unintentional journalistic error.

Why? The reporting was based off personal testimony in live interviews that turned out upon review to be at least partially, if not fully incorrect. To which The Post and CNN corrected their reporting to reflect the new information.​

If there is a criticism worth leveling at the latter it is one that is the case for almost all breaking news reporting outlets which is the rush-to-market pressure and the need to fill content about breaking stories before or at least as immediately as your competitors. Which naturally creates a problem of accuracy as there is going to be very little time to fact check and contextualize. But this is also as much a consumer problem as well, since customers demand information on these events almost the moment they happen.

LOL. Trump is to blame, trump did it, Trump trump trump. Do you hear yourselves?

Occasionally, general misunderstanding, mistake ... neither of these apply when it has anything to do with Trump or anyone seen remotely supporting Trump.

In this story alone there are at least 3 other much bigger issues the media could have jumped on but they chose the one that was most endearing to anti trump. That is not a mistake and it is not a general misunderstanding. That is an intentional reaction to get the coverage they intended to get.

Are you contesting the definition? Take it up with Wikipedia. It is a crowd-sourced medium so if you think it is inadequate feel free to edit and have that edit weighed and measured by the contributing community.

I think based on the other videos of the kids that have come out shouting "It isn't rape if you enjoy it" and badgering girls walking by with "Build The Wall" show me that I was right in my initial thought that they are just the worst. There's enough smoke around em to support the fact that they're going to grow up and continue to be so. It's interesting seeing Fox News wring their hands regarding the treatment towards them considering how they portrayed David Hogg and the clock kid. It's like a bunch of screaming Biff Tannens were let loose and I'm supposed to sympathize with these dudes because the context was off? I mean...did ya see how they were????

I wonder if there is a way to do a cross-sectional analysis at the people clutching pearls over the treatment of a bunch of punk kids that were rubbing manifest destiny into the face of a non-violent native american and harassing girls with rape comments with how many showed an ounce of concern over the border separation policies and the trauma actual political incompetence caused and continues to cause?
