Kyle Rittenhouse Announces Project to Assist Lawsuits Against Media


Kyle Rittenhouse has unveiled a new fundraising drive to support legal challenges to media outlets.

During his murder trial, which ended in November with an acquittal, Rittenhouse claimed that media outlets defamed him. He and his team have now launched a programme to assist people in similar situations.

During the 2020 racial justice protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Rittenhouse was 17 years old when he fatally shot two men and injured a third. He claimed that he was acting in self-defense.

On five counts of shooting with a semi-automatic rifle, he was found not guilty.

According to a Rasmussen Reports poll, 36% of respondents thought the Kyle Rittenhouse trial was fairly covered.

Rittenhouse told media outlets in late December that he would file lawsuits. He praised Nick Sandmann, who reached an agreement with a major network over its broadcast of his viral altercation with Nathan Phillips at the Lincoln Memorial in 2019.

At the time, Rittenhouse told Fox News that media accountability will be coming shortly. During his trial, he claimed that the mainstream media lied about him by labeling him a racist and a white supremacist.

On Fox News on Monday night, Rittenhouse announced the launch of The Media Accountability Project.
