Rittenhouse acquitted, but media guilty of another rush to judgment

“Kyle Rittenhouse, the media’s racist vigilante, is now a free man. How did that happen? The old mantra in media was once get it first, but first, get it right. Now, as it pertains to rushing to judgment, the new rule of thumb is you’re guilty until proven innocent. We witnessed that again during the Rittenhouse trial, where the 18-year-old, in many circles of the press, was tried and convicted before the trial started. Which is the opposite of the way the justice system works. Question: why, specifically in political media, do so many of these ‘mistakes’ always go in the same direction? Namely, against conservatives, against Republicans.” (11/22/21)
