They Didn’t Get the Facts Right, Because the Facts Weren’t Important to Them

Rittenhouse Defense Lawyer Rips MSNBC, CNN For Missing ‘Basic Facts’: ‘It Makes Me Angry’ | The Daily Wire

“I can say this: much of the coverage at the beginning was wrong. The trial proved that,” Richards said. “Just in the last two weeks, you know, you people may not believe this, but I watch MSNBC, CNN. I’m not a big Fox guy. And when I hear Joe Scarborough saying my client shot his gun 60 times, that’s wrong. When I hear some guest host on Joy Reid say my client drove four hours to go to a riot with his AR, that’s wrong. It’s false.”

“It makes me angry that they can’t take the time to at least get the generic, basic facts correct because it didn’t fit in the story they wanted to tell,” he said.

Maybe you should become a Fox guy.

What is the point of watching a “news source” that isn’t interested in getting the facts straight? Do you think this is the only time they have done this? If they can lie about one thing, they can lie about anything. A new source that lies has zero value.

“I can say this, that when I got involved in this case and there were a couple of other prominent lawyers who were involved and trying to make some calls and I said, ‘Look, all of your riches and civil lawsuits are going nowhere if this kid gets found guilty of anything, so let’s worry about what’s important.’ And ultimately no actions were filed by Kyle or on behalf of Kyle while I was representing him,” Richards said.

He was quite critical, and deservedly so, of Rittenhouse’s former attorneys, who seemed to be in it for the fame and glory, not for the kid. This guy was in it for the kid. I like that about him.
