About this Episode

The Covington Catholic students have been attacked relentlessly. So-called "journalists," media commentators and elected officials - never mind the rabid throngs on social media - have unloaded vicious and violent sentiments towards these kids.

Tony Katz thinks its important to remember that they are kids. And, they didn't do anything wrong.

"When kids were murdered in Parkland, FL, and the high-profile students became cable news fixtures, I reminded people that you may disagree with what they are saying, about guns and the Second Amendment," says Tony. "But they are kids. Remember that."

"Yet, when it comes to Covington Catholic students, media professionals and elected officials seem to think they are fair game for violence and vitriol based on lies. They're not. It's just wrong, and they're wrong."
