After acquitted murder on friday, Kyle Rittenhouse, The 18-year-old who shot dead two people during last year’s Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has begun his public relations campaign with help from Tucker Carlson. That night the host of Fox News tweeted a promotional clip from an upcoming Fox Nation documentary on Rittenhouse, unsurprisingly seemingly sympathetic to the budding right hero. Part of the interview with Rittenhouse will also air on Mondays Tucker Carlson Tonight. “This case has nothing to do with race. It was never related to race. It concerns the right to self-defense, “Rittenhouse speak in a pre-released clip. “I am not a racist. I support the BLM movement. I support peaceful protest.”
Rittenhouse went on to say that he believes “there needs to be a change” in the US criminal justice system: “I believe there is a lot of misconduct by the prosecution, not just in your case. me but in other cases. It’s amazing how much a prosecutor can take advantage of someone. ” You too description the mental state he was in after the shooting, said, “I [told] What happened to everyone there? I said I had to. I just got attacked. I was dizzy. I was vomiting. I can not breathe “.
Rittenhouse’s conversations with Carlson, particularly his support for Black Lives Matter, are seen by some as a calculated PR strategy. Former host of Newsmax John Cardillo speak that he “has no problem with Rittenhouse’s BLM comment. The boy is trying to avoid both the backlash against himself and his family, as well as the weaponization bias DOJ investigation. From a crisis management perspective, it was a smart move. ” However, Glenn Greenwald, not strange for the audience of Carlson’s Fox, suspect that Rittenhouse’s support of the BLM will change anyone’s mind: “If you think this is going to make anyone re-evaluate their ordinance that he’s a ‘suprematist’ of the whites’, then you’re wrong.”
Carlson’s interview with Rittenhouse was filmed as part of Tucker Carlson Originals Special documentary will atmosphere on Fox Nation in December. (Ahead of the upcoming Rittenhouse documentary, Tucker Carlson Originals probably the best known to draw portraits riots in the Capitol as a “false flag” operation by the US government to smear and imprison Trump supporters; Conspiracy series seems to have been driving longtime Fox News contributor Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg quit smoking. Filming of the new documentary was done through an embedded film crew that closely followed Rittenhouse and his legal team throughout the trial.
But this form of content creation not sitting well with Mark Richards, an attorney who defended Rittenhouse. “I don’t endorse that,” Richards said in a post-trial appearance on CNN. “I threw them out of the room a few times. I don’t think a film crew is suitable for something like this.” Richards also described the filming as “a clear distraction. And I don’t approve of that, but I’m not always the boss.” Justin Wells, one of Carlson’s producers, noting that Fox News did not pay “for any access, filming rights, legal fees, or make any other payments during the production of the episode about Kyle Rittenhouse trial.”
When Rittenhouse made his case before a national cable TV audience, his acquittal was met with cheers from Republicans in Congress, conservative media figures, and far-right group. Kevin Mathewson, a local Kenosha form an armed civilian watchdog group “to prevent riots / looting” during last year’s protests, told NS New York Times he was “walking in the sun” after hearing that Rittenhouse was leaving. “It vindicates Kyle. I feel vindicated by it,” Mathewson said, adding: “It vindicates people who say, ‘Look, no one is coming to help, we have to help ourselves.’ ”
