CNN Sued for $275 million

The Covington Catholic students’ Lincoln Memorial brouhaha has reached the next level of extremity: There has been much analysis of the suit. Timcast’s is worth checking out. Another worthwhile interview about the subject was conducted by Dave Rubin.

Congress Considers the Draft
