Kyle Rittenhouse announces initiative to challenge media in court

Washington Examiner


Kyle Rittenhouse announced a new initiative Monday aimed at challenging major media outlets in court.

The Media Accountability Project will raise money for legal challenges against outlets Rittenhouse believes defamed him during his trial and hold them "accountable" more broadly.


“The Media Accountability Project is the official fundraising vehicle for holding the worst offenders in our activist media accountable in court. 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,” Rittenhouse told the Washington Examiner.


Rittenhouse, who was 17 when he fatally shot two men and injured a third during the 2020 riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, claimed he was acting in self-defense and was in the city with a rifle to help protect businesses there during the unrest that followed the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

A Wisconsin jury in November acquitted Rittenhouse of all charges, ranging from intentional homicide to recklessly endangering safety.:snip:
