Kyle Rittenhouse joins Fox News for the ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ to discuss the launch of The Media Accountability Project, an initiative aimed at holding the media accountable. In this interview with Tucker Carlson, Rittenhouse named various potential targets for legal action once he solicits enough donations to mount lawsuits.

When asked by Tucker who in particular he is hoping to hold accountable, Rittenhouse said: "We're looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes.

Rittenhouse also said: 

“Whoopi Goldberg is 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. And there are others, don't forget about Cenk [Uygur] from the Young Turks. He called me a murderer before [the] verdict and continues to call me a murderer.”

"The Young Turks" founder Cenk Uygurf are "on his list" of people to sue, accusing both of calling him a "murderer" despite his acquittal.

"We're going to handle them in a courtroom," Rittenhouse added. 

He is launching a fund to raise money for lawsuits against media figures whom he says have spread “lies” about him. The announcement of Rittenhouse’s new initiative comes a day after former president Donald Trump launched the “Truth Social” media platform, which is being promoted an alternative to Big Tech social media networks like Twitter and Facebook.

Kyle also condemned President Biden for including him in a campaign ad montage that referred to “white supremacy”.

Kyle Rittenhouse was cleared of all charges last November in a high-profile homicide where two people were shot dead with an assault-style rifle trial. Rittenhouse attended an anti-racism (Black Lives Matter) protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin in August 2020.

However, Mr. Kyle Rittenhouse complicated his image with his right-wing fanbase somewhat in an interview with Mr. Tucker Carlson after the verdict when he said he “support[s] the Black Lives Matter movement”.

There are various people who reacted to this story, and their tweets went viral on the internet. 
Former MSNBC News anchor David Shuster tweeted: 

"The courts have long established that calling somebody a 'murderer' is an opinion + a legal right, even after the person is found 'not guilty.' At that point, one can still call them a murderer, just not a 'convicted murderer.'

"Nobody has called Rittenhouse that. He has no case."

Edward Snowden, NSA whistleblower who has sought asylum in Russia since 2013, quoted 

French philosopher Albert Camus made the point that Rittenhouse should not go down the route of suing media companies.

"'A free press can be good or bad, but without freedom, the press will never be anything but bad,'" Snowden tweeted.

 Barbara McQuade, a law professor at the University of Michigan said:

"A defamation case is unlikely to succeed here against any defendant."

"By inserting himself into the civil unrest in Kenosha, Rittenhouse voluntarily became a limited-purpose public figure, which subjects defamation claims against him to the actual malice standard."

Rittenhouse must also prove that Biden or whoever was responsible for posting the tweet acted with "reckless disregard as to its truth" by linking Rittenhouse to the far-right.
