On the rebound a month after his acquittal on murder charges, Kyle Rittenhouse indicated Monday night he is not likely to forget the way media outlets trashed him.
“There’s going to be some media accountability coming soon,” Rittenhouse said told Fox News in an interview Monday while he was in Phoenix for the AmericaFest conference hosted by the conservative group Turning Point USA.
It was a one-sentence warning that should have mainstream news organizations scrambling.
During his interview with Fox, Rittenhouse was answering questions about the media coverage that all but convicted him of murder for shooting three men in self-defense during the riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020. Two of the men died.
Rittenhouse was acquitted of the charges Nov. 19.
