MSNBC Miscreant Could Cause Mistrial for Kyle Rittenhouse

While we’ve long blamed the mainstream media for plenty of America’s shortcomings, the latest imbecilic move by MSNBC could bring a whole new level of shame to the infotainment industry.

Attorneys in the Kyle Rittenhouse case are now calling for a mistrial after an MSNBC staff member made what appeared to be an egregious overstep in the case.

The judge presiding over the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial on Thursday banned MSNBC from entering the courthouse after police in Kenosha, Wis., stopped and briefly detained a freelance producer who authorities suggested was following a bus transporting the 12-person jury deliberating the teen’s fate.

The jury concluded its third day of deliberations late Thursday afternoon following the announcement and will resume Friday morning.

Schroeder was absolutely peeved.

Judge Bruce Schroeder said that Kenosha police pulled over a person who identified himself as James J. Morrison on Wednesday night after he ran a red light about a block behind the jury bus. Schroeder said that Morrison told police he was a producer with NBC News and MSNBC and had been instructed by his supervisor, Irene Byon, to follow the bus.

“I’ve instructed that no one from MSNBC News will be permitted in this building for the duration of this trial,” Schroeder said. “This is a very serious matter and I don’t know what the ultimate truth of it is, but absolutely it would go without much thinking that someone who is following the jury bus, that’s an extremely serious matter and will be referred to the proper authorities.”

There have already been a number of unverified rumors regarding jurors’ concerns over retribution for their verdict, which in and of itself could be grounds for a mistrial in the case. MSNBC’s pathetic stunt may just be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.
