The US corporate press may have had too much influence on by Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz told RT, warning That media the bias could affect the jurors’ verdict.
Speaking with RT on Wednesday, while the jury continued his second day of resolutions in the Rittenhouse case, Dershowitz argued that media coverage of the proof and an outlet of comment online it would be practically impossible for jurors to ignore, potentially contaminating theirs decision over the 18th-year-the fate of the old man.
“In this case, the jury wasn’t even kidnapped, so they know what happens on outside. He is told not to watch television, but no one believes all jurors really respect him. “ He said.
There is no doubt that the media fiction has the danger of infiltrating in [the trial], and it would be very, very unfair if that were the case.
The law professor also took issue with President Joe Biden – who, as a Democratic candidate for the Oval Office, he tweeted out a video implying that Rittenhouse is a “White supremacist” – saying it might amount to legally prosecutable defamation and likely influenced the trial.
“They are not here prove that he is a white supremacist e indeed could very well quote in judgment the president for defamation if it is provided for by the statute of limitations. you can not just call someone a white supremacist with no evidence “ Dershowitz said.
I think Joe Biden, the candidate, made a serious one mistake by interference on the case and making his opinion heard – if a year after, he still has a flu … on establishing the media storytelling.

Only 17 at the time of the incident, Rittenhouse was charged with first-degree murder and a number of other counts after shooting two people dead and wounding another during protests and riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin last year. Prosecutors argued that the teenager provoked violence during the protests, while the defense insists that he fired his weapon to protect his own life, noting that Rittenhouse was being chased and attacked in that moment of the shootings.
After having suspended the deliberations the day before buy more time, jurors should reach a verdict sooner or later on Wednesday.
