Donald Trump Jr Tells Sean Hannity That Media Is \'Destroying Its Credibility\'  

In an appearance on Fox News Wednesday night, Donald Trump Jr. explained why he thinks the media is "destroying its credibility."

"They don't even pretend to be objective. You saw that this weekend when al-Baghdadi," the president's son told primetime host Sean Hannity, referencing the widely-criticized headline that referred to the slain ISIS leader as an "austere religious scholar" before it was updated.

He continued, "But Nick Sandmann - one of the innocent 15-year-old kids from Covington Catholic, is a homegrown terrorist? The media is destroying its credibility."

Sandmann filed a $250 million defamation lawsuit against the Post in February following an encounter with Nathan Phillips, a Native American activist, at a protest at the Lincoln Memorial. The suit accused the outlet of defaming Sandmann in "false and defamatory articles" that suggested he "assaulted and/or physically intimidated" Phillips and "wrongfully targeted and bullied Nicholas because he was the white, Catholic student wearing a red 'Make America Great Again' souvenir cap."
