In November, Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges after the Kenosha riots in August of 2020. Rittenhouse faced five charges of first degree reckless homicide, first degree reckless endangerment, first degree intentional homicide, and attempted first degree homicide as well as a weapons charge. After being defamed by the media as a terrorist, white supremacist, and a murderer, Rittenhouse seemed ready to push back against them.
“There’s going to be some media accountability coming soon,” Rittenhouse told Fox News during an interview.
This week, Rittenhouse launched ‘The Media Accountability Project’ (TMAP) which will begin filing defamation lawsuits against major news organizations and celebrities such as Whoopi Goldberg for calling him a murderer after he was acquitted in November.

Yesterday, Rittenhouse launched an epic promotional video for his new organization. WATCH:
“The media is the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty, and the guilty innocent, that’s power.” The video begins.
“I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through,” said Rittenhouse. “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.”
Tucker Carlson asked who, if anyone, Rittenhouse was planning to sue himself. “Well, right now, we’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes… Whoopi Goldberg’s on the list,” replied Rittenhouse. “She called me a ‘murderer’ after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that.”
