During deliberations for the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, where Rittenhouse was acquitted on all charges, an NBC reporter was detained while attempting to a follow jury bus back to the hotel where jurors were staying during the duration of the trial. The reporter was identified as MSNBC producer James Morrison. According to the judge, the MSNBC reporter was told to follow the bus by an MSNBC booking agent Irene Byon. Now, body camera footage from the incident has been released where Morrison admits that he was told by NBC News New York to follow the jury bus. WATCH:
“I was trying to see — I was being called by New York, going, maybe these are people you need to follow, but I, I don’t know,” Morrison said. He then said he was as an NBC employee and was told to follow the vehicle by his bosses. “It was discreet,” Morrison said. “I wasn’t, like, you know, going to talk to anybody or anything. Just trying to find a location, that’s all.”
Morrison then offered to call his bosses in front of the police, which they agreed to let him do. The woman on the other end of the call was Irene Byron, a booking producer with NBC.
Journalists and left wing activists made repeated attempts to intimidate the jury in the Rittenhouse trial. As the trial began its third day of deliberations, a man was arrested outside of the courthouse with a knife.

It’s definitely cameras up in there. There’s definitely people taking pictures of the juries and everything like that. We know what’s going on.” “so we need the same results, man.” said Rice in a video
