Once he was found not guilty for the deadly shooting that happened in Kenosha riots 2020, Rittenhouse was portrayed as a white supremacist and murderer by the media. He did a couple of interviews before seeming to fade away.
The media continued to spin the narrative about the failed justice system. Rittenhouse spoke with Fox News’ Carlson about his plans for the future.

In the video below, Rittenhouse stated: “Me and my team have decided to launch The Media Accountability Project as a tool to help fundraise and hold the media accountable for the lies they said and deal with them in court.”
He added, “I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through. 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.”
Carlson concentrated on the new project launched by Rittenhouse and asked him about the people and news organizations he planned to sue: “Well, right now, we’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, Whoopi Goldberg’s on the list. She called me a ‘murderer’ after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that. We’re going to hold everybody who lied about me accountable, such as everybody who lied called me a white supremacist. They’re all going to be held accountable. And we’re going to handle them in a courtroom.”
We have to emphasize the size of a defamation lawsuit isn’t the first of its kind. In 2019, Sandmann was classified as a MAGA extremist when he was in front of a Native American elder at the Lincoln Memorial.
After the story, Sandmann sued networks like NBC, the Washington Post, and CNN, making settlements.
