Kyle Rittenhouse has announced his plan to launch a “Media Accountability Project” that will help individuals defend against corporate media smears. “Me and my team have decided to launch The Media Accountability Project as a tool to help fund-raise and hold the media accountable for the lies they said and deal with them in court,” Rittenhouse told Tucker Carlson on Monday.
The 18-year-old told Carlson that he has compiled “a list” of prominent media organizations and other high-profile personalities he intends to sue. One name mentioned was “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg. Goldberg called Kyle Rittenhouse a “murderer” even after the teenager was acquitted of all charges stemming from the self-defense killing of two rioters in 2020. “Even all the excuses in the world does not change the fact that three people got shot. Two people were murdered. To me it’s murder,” Goldberg said shortly after the teenager’s acquittal.
“Right now we’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes,” Rittenhouse told Carlson. “Whoopi Goldberg is on the list. She called me a murderer, after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers.”
“The Young Turks” host Cenk Uygur was also named after making similar statements. “Don’t forget about Cenk from the Young Turks, he called me a murderer before I was acquitted and continues to call me a murderer,” Rittenhouse said of the far-left media personality. “I want to hold them accountable for what they did to me, because I don’t want to see anybody have to go through what I went through,”
The teenager has also been a vocal critic of President Joe Biden, who previously referred to Kyle Rittenhouse as a “white supremacist” in a video montage. A defamation lawsuit against Biden was advanced by the Rittenhouse family in 2020.
