Rush to Judgment looks at a brief encounter at the Lincoln Memorial that launched a viral video and a social media frenzy in late January, 2019. Boys from Covington Catholic High School came face-to-face with Native American and Hebrew Israelite protesters.
Filmmakers Steve Oldfield and Ryan Anderson scored an exclusive interview with Nick Sandmann, the boy in the MAGA hat and several other key players, revealing never-before-reported details of the story. They also look at what went wrong in the news business and social media and what we can learn from this. They hope to prevent future online hate mobs.
