Mainstream Media Hates Kyle Rittenhouse So Much

The mainstream news outlets can hardly hide their disdain for Kyle Rittenhouse. So they've decided not to try, and now they're recklessly reporting about his trial.

CBS first rendered its own verdict, tweeting on Thursday that Rittenhouse had "murdered" two men in an encounter in Kenosha, Wisc., last year.

Murder, in this case, has a definitive meaning, and it's up to the jurors to decide whether Rittenhouse's actions meet it. Rittenhouse has pleaded not guilty and his attorneys argue he acted in self-defense when he fatally shot Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber in August 2020. Several legal experts have also predicted that the court will likely find Rittenhouse guilty on only a weapons charge, not two counts of intentional homicide.

CBS deleted the tweet after someone above saw it.

How does that happen? It's likely the CBS tweeter follows only other CBS talents, so he or she was under the impression that Rittenhouse undoubtedly murdered two guys.

Not to be outdone, MSNBC reported that Rittenhouse's lawyer asked the judge to remove Rev. Al Sharpton from the courtroom.

"'Arrogant insensitivity': Rev. Sharpton slams Rittenhouse lawyer who asked for Sharpton's removal from court," MSNBC tweeted.

"Arrogant insensitivity," huh? How about a lie? Rittenhouse's lawyer never made that request. MSNBC mixed the report up with a different attorney in a different trial in a different state.

MSNBC eventually had to issue a correction for that, saying, "Correction: Defense attorney for William Bryan in Arbery shooting trial, not an attorney for Kyle Rittenhouse."

Just a slight mix-up.

And then there's CNN legal guy Jeffrey Toobin.

"The good news for Kyle Rittenhouse is that he's not on trial for being an idiot," Toobin said earlier this week.

That's right, Toobin, who masturbated in front of his co-workers on a Zoom call earlier this year, has accused Rittenhouse of being an idiot.

Toobin then injected race into the trial to score make-up points and to deflect from the fact that he'd masturbated in front of fellow staffers. That attempt didn't go well, either:

What's all of this about?

The media hates Kyle Rittenhouse deeply because of his white skin color. Check ESPN's Mark Jones' likes on Twitter for the definition of hate. In all likelihood, the media plans to destroy Rittenhouse's life if the jurors do not.
