Kyle Rittenhouse Goes on Trial This Week. Here's Why the Media Are Trying So Hard to Dirty Him Up


Recommended Posts

PJ Media


On August 25, 2020, Kyle Rittenhouse answered the call from a former Kenosha city councilman for armed men to protect businesses that had been targeted by Antifa and BLM rioters the two previous nights. Monday, Rittenhouse goes on trial in Kenosha for killing two attackers and wounding a third that night. Rittenhouse claims self-defense. In fact, Rittenhouse has an excellent case for self-defense, but many in the media don’t want you to know that. They, along with prosecutors, have tried hard for the past year to dirty him up.


Let’s briefly take a look at the case.

Violent rioting had been underway three nights before after police shot Jacob Blake multiple times as he tried to elude police after his partner reported him for breaking a domestic violence restraining order. He was already wanted on a warrant. Blake was accused of sexual assault. As he tried to escape the officers ordering him to freeze, Blake ran to his car, where he kept a knife, and was shot seven times. His kids were in the back seat. He later admitted that running away was a mistake.

On day three of the riots, video of the baby-faced 17-year-old Rittenhouse shows him explaining why he came to an independent reporter shooting video that night.:snip:

Judge In Rittenhouse Trial Slams Media For ‘Totally Bizarre’ Statements About Case

The judge presiding over the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse criticized the media’s “totally bizarre” coverage of the case on Wednesday.

Judge Bruce Schroeder made the comments as prosecutors attempted to play video footage from the night Rittenhouse allegedly shot three people, killing two of them, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter riot.

The defense argued that the footage, which featured narration from the person filming, included “editorial comments,” but prosecutors said that the commentary helped describe the scene and showed Rittenhouse’s “state of mind.”

“That’s hearsay,” the judge told the prosecution. “If it’s not for the truth of the matter asserted, it’s irrelevant.”

Schroeder then asked the jury to leave the courtroom to have a sidebar with the prosecution and defense. During the sidebar, Schroeder criticized the media for how it has talked about the trial.:snip:

‘He Said F**k You’: Daily Caller Reporter Testifies About What He Saw During Rittenhouse Shooting

A Daily Caller reporter who recorded video in Kenosha, Wisconsin, the night Kyle Rittenhouse allegedly shot three people testified on Thursday that Joseph Rosenbaum chased and lunged at the teenager before he fired his gun.

Richard McGinniss, chief video director for the Daily Caller, witnessed Rittenhouse‘s shooting of Jason Rosenbaum on Aug. 25, 2020. During McGinniss’ testimony, Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger pressed him to admit that he could not know Rosenbaum’s intentions that night.

“Well, he said f**k you and then he reached for the weapon,” McGinniss responded. McGinniss reenacted how Rosenbaum went after the gun, crouching and lunging forward with both arms from the stand.

It appeared Rosenbaum “was grabbing for the front portion” of Rittenhouse’s weapon before the latter fired the gun four times, McGinniss testified. McGinniss brought Rosenbaum to the hospital after he was shot, where he was confirmed dead:snip:

George Floyd Friend Claims Rittenhouse Jurors Are Being Tracked and Photographed

Is it just big-mouth social media blather, or is this an actual threat to the jury hearing the Kyle Rittenhouse case in Kenosha? And if it is, what’s being done about it?

George Floyd’s friend, Cortez Rice, who is sometimes referred to as Floyd’s nephew, released a video on Twitter in which he claims he knows people gathering photos and other information about the remaining 18 men and women in the jury pool.

Cortez issued the video as an apparent warning to the jury. In it, he says he didn’t even “want to name the people that I know that is in the Kenosha trial. But there’s cameras in there. There’s definitely cameras up in there and there’s definitely people taking pictures of the juries and everything like that. We know what’s going on. So we need the same results, man.” He then began listing people he believed needed “justice.”:snip:
