The Mainstream Media will do whatever is necessary to protect Native American and professional agitator Nathan Phillips.
Phillips, who was filmed harassing a group of Catholic school students, was a guest on NBC’s Today with Savannah Guthrie.
On Wednesday Guthrie grilled 16-year-old Nick Sandmann, the young man who bore the brunt of Phillip’s abuse. She asked the boy if he saw his “own fault” in the incident.
However, she lobbed softballs during her interview with Phillips — going so far as to dismiss reports that he lied about serving in Vietnam.

“There has also been some question about the nature of your military service and this is a good chance to clear it up,” Guthrie said. “Some have said you were a Vietnam veteran, I don’t believe you have said that, what exactly is the nature of your service?”
That’s a flat-out lie — and we have the video evidence. Here’s what Phillips said in a Twitter posting:
“I’m a Vietnam Vet. I served in Marine Corps 72 to 76. I got discharged May 5, 1976. I got honorable discharge and one of the boxes shows peacetime or, what my box says is that I was **in theater**. I don’t talk much about my Vietnam times.”
The reason he doesn’t talk much about his Vietnam times is because he did not serve in Vietnam.
