Kyle Rittenhouse Says He’s Forming An Organization To Sue The Media For Reporting On Him

Acquitted Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Monday evening that he’s creating what he calls “The Media Accountability Project” for the purpose of suing media outlets who reported on his shooting of two people at a Black Lives Matter protest in Wisconsin.

Newsweek reports that Rittenhouse said his new project is meant to punish the media for their “lies.”

“We’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes.

“Whoopi Goldberg is on the list, she called me a murderer after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that. And there’s others, don’t forget about Cenk [Uygur] from the Young Turks. He called me a murderer before verdict and continues to call me a murderer.”

As you’d expect, there’s also a financial incentive for Rittenhouse, who is asking people to send him money:

However, legal experts noted that Rittenhouse’s attempts to sue the media for defamation won’t have any success because there’s a little thing called the First Amendment.

Attorney Adrienne Lawrence remarked:

“Did someone call Rittenhouse a ‘convicted murderer’?

“Because, to my knowledge, you can be a murderer factually, even if you’re legally acquitted. An acquittal doesn’t really change that one murdered another.”

Former MSNBC host David Schuster echoed Lawrence’s comments:

So what could be the real motive for Rittenhouse’s new project? Probably money, many on Twitter suggested:

Wouldn’t it just be easier if Rittenhouse got a damn job? Isn’t that what Republicans say is the solution to every ill in the world?
