Kyle Rittenhouse went on Fox News last night and issued a warning to The View host Whoopi Goldberg specifically naming the Hollywood comedian as someone he is looking to sue for defamation.
“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,” Rittenhouse said.
“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,” he added.
Carlson asked Rittenhouse, “You have a lot of potential targets to sue yourself, will you be suing any of these news organizations and if so, when?”
“Well, right now, we’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, Whoopi Goldberg’s on the list,” Rittenhouse said.
“She called me a ‘murderer’ after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that.”
He also mentioned The Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur, who called Rittenhouse a “murderer” before the trial and “continues to call me a ‘murderer.’”
Goldberg said on the show after Rittenhouse was acquitted last November:
“He saw someone get shot.
“He thought he was doing the right thing.
“So, even – even all the excuses in the world does not change the fact that three people got shot.
“Two people were murdered.
“To me it’s murder. I’m sorry.”

My personal favorite was when CNN suddenly tried to backpedal on all of their lies the second the trial ended.https://t.co/IqXG86Ucqm— WizardRheon 🇭🇰 (@WizardRheon) February 22, 2022
