CBS’ “Face the Nation” needed to challenge a correction after a reporter claimed on Sunday that Kyle Rittenhouse crossed state lines “armed for battle” forward of his lethal encounter in Kenosha, Wis.

In the preliminary report, reporter Mark Strassman prompt Rittenhouse crossed state lines, from Illinois into Wisconsin, with a gun in his possession. However, courtroom testimony and police interviews revealed that the Smith & Wesson M&P 15 rifle Rittenhouse used throughout the Kenosha riots was already in the metropolis forward of his journey. 

“Lots to unpack here, this country’s ongoing moment of racial reckoning, vigilantism, and self-defense claims from armed people who deputize themselves,” Strassman added.

CBS’ FACE THE NATION CLAIMS RITTENHOUSE CROSSED STATE LINES ‘ARMED FOR BATTLE’

A day after Fox News Digital reached out to “Face the Nation” to flag Strassman’s deceptive narrative, the present responded to say it added an editor’s word to Sunday’s transcript: “Coverage during ‘Face the Nation’ today of the protests following the verdict in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse stated Rittenhouse ‘drove in from Illinois armed for battle.’ Kyle Rittenhouse testified that he did not drive to Kenosha with a weapon. It was not illegal for Rittenhouse to posses that particular weapon. We apologize for this oversight in language.”

Several shops have repeated the similar claim, regardless of courtroom documentation. The media have typically misconstrued the occasions in Kenosha, or declared Rittenhouse a responsible man even earlier than the protection offered its case. Liberal media pundits and Democratic politicians, in the meantime, have known as Rittenhouse a “White supremacist.”
