CNN, MSNBC and The New York Times are amongst the liberal media retailers that have been always unsuitable about Kyle Rittenhouse – and one media watchdog stored receipts to show it. 

Journalist Drew Holden, who has grow to be identified for viral Twitter threads showcasing media hypocrisy and ice-cold takes, revisited the emotional and infrequently deceptive protection of Rittenhouse on Friday. 

A jury discovered Rittenhouse was performing in self-defense at the Kenosha riots in August 2020 when he shot and killed two males, Joseph Rosenbaum, and Anthony Huber, and injured a 3rd man, Gaige Grosskreutz.

The 18-year-old was discovered not responsible on all 5 fees towards him, together with first-degree reckless murder, two counts of first-degree intentional murder and two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment. Shortly afterwards, Holden took to Twitter and offered proof of liberal media punditry gone unsuitable. 


“With the news that he has been acquitted on all counts, don’t forget the ways that Dems and the corporate press came together to craft a false narrative in his case. Let’s break down how we got here,” he wrote. 

“We need to start with the media coverage that framed this case in the public mind,” Holden wrote. “To the press, Rittenhouse was as good as guilty when the news broke. So naturally, to @CNN, the people he shot in self defense were heroes & those defending him had ‘justified murder.’”

Holden then shared photos of CNN’s official Twitter account dismissing the notion that Rittenhouse acted in self-defense. 

Holden then identified that it wasn’t “just limited to CNN,” as the New York Times scolded Rittenhouse for supporting regulation enforcement. 

“Never to be outdone, @MSNBC said the shooting was white supremacy and then went on to blame – who else – President Trump for ‘fueling violence,’ sowing ‘chaos and disorder’ and ‘encouraging vigilante justice’ (peep that last guest),” Holden wrote in the subsequent tweet, offering photos together with an look by former FBI agent Peter Strzok.

Holden referred to as MSNBC’s Joy Reid arguably the most “inaccurate” individual in media. 

“She lumped Rittenhouse in with ‘White nationalist mobs’ and accused Trump of ‘ethnic cleansing (!!) for daring to defend Rittenhouse,” he wrote. 

Holden then mocked Brian Tyler Cohen, who hosts a podcast called “No Lie” but “spouts nonsense and misinformation in a nearly unparalleled way.” The media watchdog also reminded followers that the Associated Press knocked Trump for suggesting Rittenhouse acted in self-defense. 

“Here’s @PolitiFact claiming that Trump lied when he said Rittenhouse was trying to get away from protestors and was attacked – both details have since been confirmed by video,” the thread continued. “Will you update your inaccurate post, Politifact? Or the gun charge details?”

“NPR picked up on a similar sentiment, knocking Trump for ‘claiming, without evidence, that it appeared the gunman was acting in self-defense,’” Holden wrote. “Now we’ve had a court of law confirm it was using videos and context many of which were available at the time.” 

Liberal journalist Yamiche Alcindor was up subsequent, as Holden resurfaced a declare she made throughout an look on MSNBC. 

“Again, the framing of what happened was always preposterous. Here’s @Yamiche from NPR claiming that the takeaway was meant to be ‘that ifs okay for a 17-year old to shoot people on the street who are unarmed, who are at a protest,’” he wrote. “That’s impossible to square with the facts.”

The Washington Post took the identical strategy.

“While they might’ve forgiven Trump had he only declined to denounce Rittenhouse, that he would ‘volunteer defenses’ for someone who acted in self-defense was simply beyond the pale. This is meant as straight news coverage,” Holden captioned photos of Post protection. 

“Also, as a call out, this type of deceptive coverage is still going on,” Holden added, noting that news organizations have mentioned Rittenhouse “murdered” two males. 

Holden additionally referred to as out Max Boot, Jennifer Rubin, New York journal, USA Today, CBS News, The Daily Beast, President Biden and a number of Democratic politicians. 

“I don’t have space for all the awful coverage,” he wrote. “The most unhinged content – as ever – came from lefty blue checks across Twitter.”
