    All, what is you're perspective of the events that occurred at the Lincoln Memorial? It should be noted, that main news video does not show the events that led upto the viral video we all have seen.

    From link:

    NBC “Today” co-host Savannah Guthrie was criticized by the left and the right on Wednesday following her interview with Nick Sandmann, the Covington High School student at the center of a weekend controversy at the Lincoln Memorial.

    Liberals criticized Guthrie and “Today” for giving Sandmann a national platform, while conservatives criticized her for asking if he should apologize to Native American activist Nathan Phillips.

    Sandmann and Phillips are at the center of a media firestorm over their interaction at the Lincoln Memorial.

    Sandmann and a group of his classmates were in Washington for the March for Life rally when they ran into Phillips. Viral video initially appeared to show the two in some kind of confrontation, with Sandmann and other students seemingly mocking the activist, who was beating a drum and singing.

    Other videos subsequently suggested that initial video was selectively edited and shown out of context, and that the meeting was hardly confrontational.
