Fox News Defends ‘All-American' Kenosha Shooter: ‘Little Boy' Just Protecting ‘His State'
Fox News devoted multiple segments on Tuesday night to defending accused murderer Kyle Rittenhouse, describing the 17-year-old charged with shooting several Kenosha protesters as an "all-American" and a "little boy out there trying to protect his community."Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who justified the shootings earlier this summer, kicked off his program Tuesday night by airing a video detailing the August shootings produced by a fundraising group led by Rittenhouse's attorney, L. Lin Wood.The heavily narrated video, which purportedly details Rittenhouse's actions that night, largely uses previously shown footage while portraying the victims as criminals, going so far as to show their rap sheets when identifying them. Rittenhouse, meanwhile, is described as a lifeguard who has devoted hundreds of hours to community service.The video also tries to sow doubt about whether Rittenhouse actually killed Jason Rosenbaum, the first victim. Acknowledging that Rittenhouse shot four times toward Rosenbaum, the narrator notes that other shots were fired in the vicinity, suggesting that the shot that killed Rosenbaum could have been fired by someone else.After showing the slickly produced clip from Rittenhouse's defense team, Carlson turned to pro-Trump Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro, who immediately took the opportunity to defend Rittenhouse."We still don't know if Kyle did the kill shot, because we can't get the autopsy or the ballistic reports yet," she said.
