The Political Insider – Attorney Robert Barnes, who represents students involved in the Covington Catholic media smear, has offered up his services for free to sue the New York Times for “obvious libel.”
Barnes’s fiery response to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman should serve as a serious concern to the many journalists and media entities who rushed to judgment on the Covington kids.
He initially responded to Haberman on social media after she suggested for several of the boys in the video apparently acting in a ‘racist’ manner to be expelled. Barnes offered to represent the kids at no cost if they wanted to pursue . . . the outlet she represents.
