Rittenhouse Launches The Media Accountability Project to Sue for DEFAMATION

Political News

In a Monday appearance on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, liberal media hate object Kyle Rittenhouse went beyond just announcing he was suing the media for the lies they spewed about him. Instead, he and his legal team had set up an organization, The Media Accountability Project (TMAP), that would take up his cases and the cases of others who the media heinously targeted with lies and misinformation in an attempt to ruin their lives.

And that’s exactly what Rittenhouse promised ahead of the appearance. “Accountability is coming” he exclaimed multiple times in tweets. Such lawsuits were hinted at back in November when Rittenhouse told Carlson he felt the media were “defaming” him and hurting his future.

“Me and my team have decided to launch The Media Accountability Project as a tool to help fundraise and hold the media accountable for the lies they said and deal with them in court,” he told Carlson Monday night.

Carlson was curious as to why there wasn’t already an organization that handled this kind of thing already. Rittenhouse didn’t know but he was adamant that he didn’t want other innocent people to be victimized by the liberal media:

CARLSON: Why isn’t there a group like this that exists already, since the media so often are not observers, they’re players, they’re participants in the news, why hasn’t someone done this before?

RITTENHOUSE: That’s a good question, Tucker, and I’m not sure, to be honest. But I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through. So, 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.

On his short list of people, the organization is looking to sue on his behalf, Rittenhouse said they’re “looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, Whoopi Goldberg is on the list.”

That specific callout of Goldberg was because “[s]he called me a murderer after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers.” That also included “Cenk [Uygur] from The Young Turks, they called me a murder before a verdict and continues to call me a murderer.”

And for those who called him a “white supremacist,” Rittenhouse warned: “They’re all going to be held accountable and we’re going to handle them in a courtroom.”

In a Daily Mail op-ed from before the end of the Rittenhouse show trial, former Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann advised Rittenhouse on how to go about suing the media and how to prepare himself for the trials and tribulations.

“Again, the chances are still low and nothing is guaranteed in a defamation trial. Kyle should also be prepared for a long trial which will be present in his mind for years,” Sandmann said, noting he still had six outstanding suits after three years. “So, if Kyle is prepared to take on another burden in his early life, with the acceptance that it might result in nothing, I answer, give it a shot and hold the media accountable.”

Many suspected that Rittenhouse would be taking on the liberal media machine by himself. But few foresaw an organization dedicated to combating the media’s lies to spring from it.

TUCKER CARLSON: I can’t think of many people who’ve been at receiving end of this much sinister lying from so-called news organizations as you have. How are you going to respond?

KYLE RITTENHOUSE: Well Tucker, thank you for having me. Me and my team have decided to launch The Media Accountability Project as a tool to help fundraise and hold the media accountable for the lies they said and deal with them in court.

CARLSON: Interesting. So the idea is, maybe like the Covington Catholic kids, you will be suing news organizations that maliciously lie about people who are in the news, is that the plan?

RITTENHOUSE: Yes, sir. We’re going to be holding them accountable, Tucker.

CARLSON: Do you – I guess I have to ask kind of a dumb question — Why isn’t there a group like this that exists already, since the media so often are not observers, they’re players, they’re participants in the news, why hasn’t someone done this before?

RITTENHOUSE: That’s a good question, Tucker, and I’m not sure, to be honest. But I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through. So, 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.

CARLSON: Yeah. They tried to imprison you for the rest of your life; it wasn’t coverage it was advocacy. You have a lot of potential targets to sue yourself, will you be suing any of these news organizations, and if so, when?

RITTENHOUSE: Well, right now we’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, Whoopi Goldberg is on the list. She called me a murderer after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that, and there’s others, don’t forget about Cenk from The Young Turks, they called me a murder before a verdict and continues to call me a murderer.

CARLSON: Interesting. And what about the people who called you groundlessly a white supremacist, which makes it pretty hard to get a job for the rest of your life if you are a white supremacist. Will you be responding to them?

RITTENHOUSE: Absolutely. We are going to hold everybody who’s lied about me accountable. Such as — everybody who lied called me a white supremacist. They’re all going to be held accountable and we’re going to handle them in a courtroom.

CARLSON: A Kyle Rittenhouse, I appreciate you announcing that tonight. The Media Accountability Project. And, of course, we’re rooting for justice like we always are. So, thank you very much. Good to see you.

RITTENHOUSE: Thank you, Tucker. And if anybody wants to help join us in this battle, they can donate at TMAP.org.

TUCKER: Thanks a lot.
