Taking Big Media, Big Tech, and Big Government to Task
Washington, D.C.: “Kyle Rittenhouse is an exemplary young man who has been slandered, libeled, and vilified for standing up to anarchists and protecting his community,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “Now Kyle is presented a unique opportunity, much like Nick Sandmann and the Covington Catholic students, and he’s decided to lead the fight against the Narrative Machine.”
Kyle Rittenhouse has announced the creation of The Media Accountability Project, an initiative that will allow him to fight back legally against the public figures, political organizations, and media outlets who proclaimed his guilt as a racist mass murderer despite every bit of evidence proving the opposite.
“Nick Sandmann dealt a significant financial blow to CNN in his defamation suit,” Martin continued, “and I would love nothing more than to see Kyle Rittenhouse’s TMAP initiative clean out every lying propaganda outlet. Kyle felt the full weight of the Narrative Machine — what I often call the tangled web of Big Media, Big Tech, and Big Government. Now he’s calling for us to help him ‘hold the worst offenders in our activist media accountable in court.’
“He isn’t stopping at media organizations; he’s named public figures all the way up to President Joe Biden who continued to slander him despite his acquittal. In fact, he’s already announced he intends to bring LeBron James and other individuals ‘who defamed, or lied about’ him to a courtroom.”
Martin concluded, “Good for Kyle Rittenhouse. For 18 months now the entirety of the leftist Narrative Machine has attempted to completely ruin his life. Instead of bending under the pressure, Kyle Rittenhouse is rising to the occasion. He’s become the face of our right to self defense, and it looks like he’s about to become the face of accountability for our out-of-control mainstream media. Good for Kyle. Good for his team. Let’s all stand with him and take the media elites to task!”
