Kyle Rittenhouse “should be acquitted” of killing two men and wounding a third during last year’s Black Lives Matter protests in Kenosha, Wisc., and then he should hold liberal news outlets accountable for insisting he’s guilty of murder and committed vigilante justice, Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz insisted on Newsmax Saturday.
“If I were a juror, I would vote that there was reasonable doubt [and] that he did act in self-defense,” Dershowitz told Newsmax’s “Saturday Report.”
“Then he’ll bring lawsuits, and that’s the way to answer… vigilante justice is what CNN is doing, not what a 17-year-old kid under pressure may have done right or wrong. It’s CNN who is involved in vigilante justice. It’s The New Yorker that’s guilty of vigilante justice.”
“The idea is to make the media accountable for deliberate and willful lies,” said Dershowitz.
