The Washington Post has been forced to correct its inaccurate report of the viral confrontation between the Covington Catholic MAGA boys and the activist Nathan Phillips, two months after publishing the story.

WaPo admitted that "subsequent reporting, a student's statement, and additional video" either contradicted or didn't back the initial story.

The editors acknowledge that the Covington boys did not provoke or stand in the way of Phillips like initially claimed.

The Jeff Bezos-owned news outlet also removed a tweet quoting Phillips' assertion that they did exactly that, as the paper refers to the native activist as a 'Vietnam veteran,' which was also proven false.

Nick Sandmann's family filed a $250 million defamation lawsuit against WaPo, a sum that matched how much Bezos bought the paper for.

Following the narrative of other liberal left media outlets, the Post wrongly framed Sandman and his classmates as perpetrators and Phillips as a victim.

The news outlet also added to the chorus "white privilege," something which many Hollywood celebrities including Kathy Griffin focused on.

Sandman, along with his classmates and family were subjected to a hate campaign including death threats as the story spread across social media.

In January, one media outlet fired one of its journalists for threatening Sandman and his family.

A writer for Vulture was fired from his role are INE Entertainment after calling for the deaths of the Covington Catholic students and their parents “to die.”

The journalist joins the likes of Kathy Griffin and Reza Aslan, and multiple blue tick 'leftists' brigades, who made threats against the MAGA hat kids.

“I don’t know what it says about me, but I’ve truly lost the ability to articulate the hysterical rage, nausea, and heartache this makes me feel."

"I just want these people to die. Simple as that. Every single one of them. And their parents,” Erik Abriss Tweeted.
