So WAPO just admitted they didn't do any investigated journalism nor corrected their mistakes. I guess they wanted to hand Sandmann's attorney an instant win for purplishing this.

I predict that young Mr. Sandmann is going to be very rich by the end of the year.

I think they clearly slandered the boys and should pay accordingly. They should be very nervous.

You missed the deadline that was made very public multiple times I believe. You probably thought it was a bluff. Guess you were wrong. It probably won't cost you the full amount but the payday will hurt your checkbook. Really hope they follow through and sue the rest of the ones that refused to apologise.
