Kyle Rittenhouse appeared on Tucker Carlson Monday night with his attorney Todd McMurtry. McMurtry represented Nicholas Sandmann, the young man who, at 16, was maligned by several media organizations and portrayed as some sort of villain for the crime of standing still with a MAGA hat when the media wanted to demonize anything related to President Donald Trump. Sandmann’s legal team has obtained several settlements from media organizations on Sandmann’s behalf. McMurtry is now assessing possible actions for Rittenhouse.
Kyle Rittenhouse joins @TuckerCarlson to discuss his lawsuit against Big Tech and the media.

“Well, we’re going to make the media pay for what they did to me. They made it harder for me to live a normal life. I can’t go out in public. I can’t go to the store. It’s hard for me to go anywhere without security. Doing basic things like taking my dog to the dog park is hard. They made it really hard to be normal and they affected my future job opportunities. I don’t think I will ever be able to work or find a job because I’m afraid an employer won’t hire me.
McMurtry said the first tech company they considered in terms of legal action was Facebook. He said Mark Zuckerberg announced on video that Kyle had been involved in a “mass murder”. “It’s clearly defamatory,” McMurtry said. McMurtry also said they were going to sue not only because they were making false claims about Kyle, but they were also suppressing the truth by removing posts that would have clarified the case for the public as well.
McMurtry also touched on how other outlets had called Rittenhouse a “white supremacist,” a claim that was fabricated and that they would pursue those claims as well. Although McMurtry didn’t mention Joe Biden, he was one of the most prominent people to push this false claim, even posting a video that featured Kyle.
The media acted without any accountability when it came to Rittenhouse, as this supercut shows.

Rittenhouse said he was harassed about it and needed to be safe with it.
McMurtry told Fox News there were ‘probably 10 to 15 strong cases’ against ‘big defendants’ and that Zuckerberg topped the list, ‘because he has an outsized voice’, given the platform. Facebook.
As for proving damages, McMurtry told Fox News Digital that he knew “for a fact that [Rittenhouse] can prove that his employment prospects are permanently reduced.
“Not to mention what they call perpetual reputational damage, which means Kyle will never interact with anyone without knowing who they are. And it will follow him for the rest of his life.
“Everyone is going to prejudge him in every new interaction he has with everyone for the rest of his life, and that’s called perpetual reputational damage. … The social media hysteria has caused all of this because people can’t act reasonably and rationally under certain circumstances,” McMurtry said.
So it looks like they’re finally going to start dropping stocks on people. It would be something if they included Zuckerberg and Biden. They think they are not responsible for what they say. Taking action against them would be a strong signal to the media – and officials – that they will be held accountable. It would not be difficult to show this damage to Rittenhouse’s reputation. Just by looking on social media, he’s constantly being vilified by leftists as a ‘murderer’ and accused of fake things because of false media reporting – and he’s right that he may face questions for a long time about everything he tries to do in life.
