Kyle Rittenhouse gets standing ovation at conservative conference, says he may sue media outlets

Kyle Rittenhouse was given a warm welcome as he delivered a speech at a Turning Point conference.

“You’re a hero to millions,” Turning Point USA leader Charlie Kirk told Rittenhouse during the group’s AmericaFest gathering in Phoenix. “It’s an honor to be able to have you.”

Rittenhouse suggested to the crowd that he may take out lawsuits against the media for how they covered his trial. “There’s going to be some media accountability coming soon,” Rittenhouse told Fox News.

Rittenhouse did not identify any media outlets he could sue or cite any examples of alleged defamation. At this stage he has not taken legal action against a media company.

Rittenhouse would follow in the footsteps of Nicholas Sandmann, who announced on Friday that he has reached a settlement with NBC News regarding its coverage of an interaction between the Catholic school student and Native American activist Nathan Phillips in Washington during the March for Life in 2019. When asked by Fox about Sandmann’s latest settlement, Rittenhouse responded, “Good for him.”

The Washington Post settled a lawsuit by Sandmann’s parents last year. Sandmann’s family contended in a suit filed in 2019 that The Post defamed Sandmann in seven articles and in tweets promoting the articles.

Rittenhouse recently met with former President Donald Trump and is also the subject of a documentary by Fox news anchor Tucker Carlson.Rittenhouse recently met with former President Donald Trump and is also the subject of a documentary by Fox news anchor Tucker Carlson.
