It wasn’t just luck that rendered Kyle Rittenhouse “not guilty” in a Wisconsin courtroom last year. In fact, it was the careful creation of our justice system, and the application of our current laws that saved Rittenhouse from a jail sentence.
Kittenhouse’s lawyers successfully argued their client acted in self defense.
“The … project is the official fundraising vehicle for holding the worst offenders in our activist media accountable in court, Rittenhouse told the Washington Examiner. “In the long term, I want to provide a platform for independent journalists who are actually committed to the truth, but for right now, accountability is priority No. 1.”
He told Fox News at the time of his trail that it “exposed a deep corruption in our media that cannot go unanswered. Their blatant lies, defamation, and propaganda were malicious attempts to tear our nation apart and destroy my life – and I am committed to holding them accountable.”
Rittenhouse’s effort is similar to that of Nicholas Sandmann, a a high schooler who was covered by the media for days following his interaction with Native American activist Nathan Phillips during the 2019 March for Life.
Sandmann reached legal settlements with CNN, NBC, and the Washington Post for their coverage of the event.
