It’s Good That You Understand That You Were Wrong, But...

The facts on this story are not new. They were there for everyone to see for the last year. You just chose to ignore them. And as part of the news media, that’s an indictment on you. You have a responsibility to get it right the first time. Particularly if you’re going to go on air and opine on it.

‘I Was Wrong’: Young Turks’ Kasparian Admits She Bought Into False Rittenhouse Narrative | The Daily Wire

Ana Kasparian, a cohost of the popular progressive online news show “The Young Turks,” shockingly revealed last week that she “was wrong” about key facts concerning the case of Kyle Rittenhouse.

Kasparian said she thought Rittenhouse first chased after Joseph Rosenbaum, sparking the incident that ended with the teen fatally shooting Rosenbaum. However, it was Rosenbaum who chased after Rittenhouse. Moreover, a gun was fired from a third party just seconds before Rittenhouse fatally shot Rosenbaum.

“I was wrong about that, okay, so I want to correct the record,” Kasparian said on her news show. “Look, these details matter, because if you’re going to make an argument that you acted in self-defense, there needs to be some proof that there was an imminent threat.”

I hope you are examining why you didn’t realize this long before now.
