The idiots running the fake news media have learned nothing from the mess they made when they tried to attack another right-wing minor by the name of Nicholas Sandmann. The Twitter mob, along with their cohorts in the media, went on a feeding frenzy trying to takedown young MAGA-hat-wearing Nick, because they claimed he was “smirking” at a Native American.
In other words, he was “RACIST.”
Of course, that’s not what happened at all – as usual, the media was completely wrong, and created division, arguing, and a dangerous situation, all based on fake news… and in the end, they paid for it when they got sued by Sandmann.
So, you’d think they’d learn, right?
They not only went after young Kyle Rittenhouse, but they did it even more viciously than before and created an even deadlier powder keg and deeper division.
And now that Kyle was acquitted on all charges, Nick Sandmann has some advice for him: SUE
I look forward to getting in touch with Kyle. He has weathered this trial with grace and I will continue to help him hold the media accountable in any way I can,

Fox News reported that former Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann – who famously settled a defamation suit against CNN – thinks Kyle Rittenhouse should sue news outlets to “hold the media accountable” after liberal pundits rushed to judgment on his case.
“The parallels between me and Kyle Rittenhouse are impossible not to draw,” Sandmann wrote in a column for the Daily Mail in which he directly reached out to lend support. “The way the media has treated you is terrible, and you don’t have to face it alone.”
Rittenhouse, an Illinois man on trial for intentional homicide and other charges in the shooting deaths of two people during chaotic August 2020 demonstrations in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was quickly labeled a “White supremacist” by liberal pundits at the height of protests sparked by the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Rittenhouse says he acted in self-defense and a jury is currently deliberating to decide his fate.
“Kyle was almost immediately labeled a ‘white supremacist’ and a ‘domestic terrorist.’ To many, my red MAGA hat clearly meant that I was a racist,” Sandmann continued. “Kyle wasn’t given his day in court by his critics. And neither was I. The attacks on Kyle came from the national news media, just as they came for me. They came quickly, without hesitation, because Kyle was an easy target that they could paint in the way they wanted to.”
Amen, and nobody knows that “playbook” better than Nick.
I really liked what he said about how the media operates. Young Nick nails it:
“This is the problem with liberal media outlets in the United States. They want to get the story first, get the most views, make the most money, and advance the agenda from liberal patrons,” he wrote. “These outlets cover themselves when they are wrong with small footnotes at the ends of long articles, clarifying that new information has come out and that they have updated their coverage. News shouldn’t be a scoreboard that constantly changes. News is about coverage that includes a statement of facts that does not need to be corrected. But, the liberal media doesn’t do this. The liberal media rushes to be the first to report.”
That is so true. The media has a responsibility to get the story “right.” It’s understandable if smaller outlets or bloggers have to make a lot of updates because we offer our opinions and usually aren’t working with “sources” on the ground. But if you’re a newsroom who’s getting “breaking news” from your army of sources, you’re supposed to deliver the “facts” not opinion.
Opinions come later after facts are gathered and laid out, but that’s not happening with anybody in the mainstream media.
Sandmann went on to say, “In our hyperpolarized society, the first impression of Kyle has been set in stone, probably for the rest of his life,” specifically calling out President Biden, LeBron James and Rep. Ayana Pressley, D-Mass., in addition to countless liberal pundits.
A guest on MSNBC compared him to a “school shooter,” while another said he is “arguably a domestic terrorist.” MSNBC’s Joy Reid referred to him as a “vigilante,” and Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., used the “White supremacist” term when talking about Rittenhouse during an appearance on CNN in March.
“With Kyle’s name dragged through the mud, and the clear effect it is having on him, many have started to ask the question whether Kyle should sue for defamation. While I am by no means an attorney, I have gained some experience on the ins and outs of defamation and can offer an educated guess on what the outcome would be if Kyle were to sue,” Sandmann wrote, explaining how difficult defamation cases are to win.
Nick ended his piece by explaining that now that Kyle has been found innocent, he has a much clearer path to sue these outlets and pundits and people like LeBron James and Joe Biden.
Let’s hope that Kyle does this.
