Kyle Rittenhouse discussed his legal team’s recent strategy and plans to launch a new project that seeks to protect individuals from corporate media slander and hold media organizations accountable for their actions and damages caused to innocent people during a recent interview on Fox News with Tucker Carlson on his show ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’
“Me and my team have chosen to start The Media Accountability Project as a vehicle to assist fundraise and hold the media responsible for the lies they uttered and deal with them in court,” Carlson Rittenhouse said.
Rittenhouse announced the debut of TMAP during an interview with FOX News’ Tucker Carlson, according to Fox News. “That’s an excellent question, Tucker, and I’m not sure, to be honest,” Rittenhouse said when Carlson questioned why such an organization doesn’t already exist. However, I don’t want anyone else to have to go through what I did. So I want to hold them accountable for what they did to me because I don’t want anyone else to experience what I experienced.”
Rittenhouse was charged with two counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, and two counts of reckless endangerment in connection with a melee at midnight on August 25, 2020, in the tiny Midwestern city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, amid Black Lives Matter protests. Rittenhouse said he was acting in self-defense when he shot and killed two individuals and injured a third.
The establishment media got captivated with Rittenhouse almost immediately, focusing on him nonstop from the night of the shootings until his trial ended. According to Breitbart News, Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all counts on November 19, 2021.
Carlson questioned the 18-year-old if he planned to use a specific news organization during the interview. Rittenhouse didn’t mention any news organizations, but he did mention Whoopi Goldberg, the prominent actress, and talk show presenter. “Right now, we’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, and Whoopi Goldberg is on the list,” Rittenhouse said. After I was acquitted by a jury of my peers, she dubbed me a “murderer.” She continued to say that.”

The Media Accountability Project was founded in response to Rittenhouse’s personal experience of being called every term in the book during his murder prosecution, for which he was acquitted. According to Rittenhouse, the media must take responsibility for what they have stated about him, claiming, “I don’t want anyone else to have to go through what I did,” he concluded. “So I want to hold them accountable for what they did to me because I don’t want anyone else to experience what I experienced.”
“And there are others,” Rittenhouse said, naming The Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur alongside Whoopi Goldberg. “And don’t forget Cenk from The Young Turks.” He referred to me as a murderer before the verdict and continues to do so.” The Media Accountability Project, founded by Rittenhouse, is a tremendous start in holding the media responsible for defamation and will be a key component in future similar instances.
The premiere of conservative director Dinesh D’Souza’s new film 2,000 Mules, which promotes unfounded ideas that the 2020 election was rigged against Trump, took place at the former president’s Florida resort. Kyle Rittenhouse, the youngster who was found not guilty of killing two people at an anti-police rally in Kenosha, Wisconsin in August 2020, was one of the attendees seen at the event. Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, Lauren Boebert, and Louie Gohmert, all Republicans, were also in attendance.
Greene posted an Instagram photo of herself with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece Alveda King at Mar-a-Lago. It’s unclear whether Greene and Boebert spoke at the event after it was reported last week that they had a heated disagreement that had to be broken up by a fellow House Republican.
Kellyanne Conway, a former Trump administration senior assistant, and Hogan Gidley, the former deputy press secretary, were also in attendance. On Saturday night, Gidley attended the White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, where a number of journalists and officials had tested positive for COVID-19.
Kevin Sorbo and Kristy Swanson, as well as the ex-former president’s lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, attended the premiere. Conservative activist David Harris Jr. shared a video of Trump arriving at the lavish dinner on Instagram.
As the crowd concentrates on the former president, a woman’s voice can be heard stating, ‘This man – not only is he a warrior, not only does he never back down, but he’s brilliant.’ ‘He warned us about Biden being a left-wing Trojan Horse.’ He warned us about the border, foreign policy, voting fraud, and mail-in ballots, among other things.’
