The Fake News Media is out of control.
After three and a half years of constant negative press for President Trump, the networks are pulling out all the stops to back Biden.
But now ABC News is in hot water over their coverage of this Joe Biden campaign video.
During riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse shot two Black Lives Matter rioters in an apparent act of self-defense.
He now faces murder charges in Wisconsin over the act, despite video surfacing showing one of the rioters bashing Rittenhouse in the head with a skateboard while a second rioter brandished a handgun.
After the first debate, the Biden campaign released a video on Twitter smearing Rittenhouse as a white supremacist.
Immediately, Rittenhouse’s attorney Lin Wood threatened to file a defamation suit as even the left-wing Anti-Defamation League publicly admitted there was no evidence Rittenhouse was a white supremacist.
ABC News apparently didn’t get the memo that the Biden smear was fake news.
And it could cost them.
A recent article on ABCnews.com stated, “Rittenhouse, an alleged white supremacist accused of killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in the wake of an officer-involved shooting, appeared via Zoom for an Illinois hearing where his attorney contested the teen’s extradition to Wisconsin to face homicide and other charges in connection with the August shootings.”
To back up their assertion, ABC cited the Biden campaign.
“Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign has criticized President Donald Trump’s failure to condemn white supremacists. A campaign video featured Rittenhouse on the streets of Kenosha. Attorney Lin Wood, who is helping to raise funds for Rittenhouse’s defense, threatened to sue the Biden campaign for libel on behalf of Rittenhouse in response to the video,” ABC News added.
The Fake News Media isn’t interested in reporting facts anymore.
Instead, they spin a web of lies and half truths and repeat them endlessly until it becomes accepted as fact.
For Kyle Rittenhouse, what clearly appears to be an act of self-defense is now tainted in public perception by the Biden campaign and Fake News Media smearing him repeatedly as a white supremacist.
And that assertion just isn’t backed up by facts.
