Decoding Q #818: Libel Laws will be the end of MSM. Covington Lawyer Suing for Libel.

I would like to remind you about a Q post from February 23, 2018, #818 according to

In the post above, Q tells us that exercising libel law would be the end of the MSM and fake news as we know it. Following the MSM has been a wild ride since the Republicans took back the Oval Office, and their attacks on supporters of the President has reached an all-time high lately, while their viewership has plummeted. In order to further their liberal agenda, they must tell their viewers that making America great again is bad, and everyone who supports such an agenda is also bad – even if those supporters are children.

One important thing to note about this post, and a majority of the Q drops from 2018, is that we’re one year and two days ahead of schedule. This means that this particular drop should become extra relevant on approximately February 21, 2019.

On January 18th, 2019, a group of high school students from Covington, KY were touring the nation’s capital. While waiting for their bus, they were accosted by two groups, one Black Jesuit and one Native American. A media frenzy ensued after a video on Twitter emerged, showing a short clip of a much longer scene. The account who first shared the video, with the username @2020fight, was set up in December 2016 and appeared to be the tweets of a woman named Talia living in California. “Teacher & Advocate. Fighting for 2020,” theTwitter bio read. Since the beginning of this year, the account had tweeted on average 130 times a day and had more than 40,000 followers.

CNN notes that “The video had been posted earlier on Instagram by someone who was at the event, but it was @2020fight’s caption that helped frame the news cycle.” The caption stated, “This MAGA loser gleefully bothering a Native American protester at the Indigenous Peoples March.” An editor at Twitter-monitoring service Storyful said “the @2020fight video was the main version of the incident being shared on social media.”

How did a woman in California find, obtain, and spread a video taken thousands of miles away?

We don’t know.

Yesterday, the lawyer representing the Sandmann family, whose son Nicholas was the epicenter of the media storm, released a statement and letter on the actions being taken. Since the Cincinnati website is behind a paywall and many advertisements, we’ll bring it to you below so you don’t need to click away. You can view a full screencap of the article here.

“The lawyers representing Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and his family said Friday they have sent letters to media outlets, individual journalists, celebrities and Catholic organizations as the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits.

The legal counsel representing Nick and his family, Todd McMurtry and experienced libel and defamation lawyer L. Lin Wood of Atlanta, have said they will seek justice for the harm allegedly done to the teen.

McMurtry said an example of false reports were those saying Nick got into the face of Phillips. McMurtry added his belief that some in the aftermath of the incident “permanently stained (Nick’s) reputation.”

McMurtry is with the law firm of Hemmer Defrank Wessels and has practiced law in Greater Cincinnati since 1991. He said a team of seven lawyers has been working full-time to review the media accounts of what happened. This week they have prepared documentation preservation letters addressed to organizations and individuals they believe may have defamed or libeled Nick with false reporting, McMurtry said.

McMurtry said the following organizations and people are those who can expect to receive the letters, which were all sent by the close of business on Friday:
