Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial for fatally shooting two while injuring another at the Kenosha protests last year came to an end. Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges, and he was thankful for the change to start over. FOX News had a special interest in the proceedings of the case.

Rittenhouse’s win followed up with great appreciation for the verdicts from the conservative audiences. FOX News’ Tucker Carlson revealed just hours after the verdict for the Rittenhouse Trial came that he would personally interview Kylie Rittenhouse.

FOX News had their own crew following Kyle Rittenhouse during the trial and following their every move. The crew intended to get as much footage as possible in order to make a documentary on it. However, they had a strong blockade in the way.

Mark Richards, who was part of Rittenhouse’s legal team, stated that he pushed back the FOX News crew several times. He revealed to CNN that he found it inappropriate for the crew to be following them around. Richards said that for a trial where so much was at stake, it was completely off limits for the crew to cover everything. He added that the crew’s presence was “a definite distraction.”

I did not approve of that. I threw them out of the room several times. I don’t think a film crew is appropriate for something like this.

FOX News & FOX Nation were asked for comments, on which they didn’t follow up. However, they announced later on that the documentary will release next month on FOX Nation. The documentary is said to include “additional portions of the [Rittenhouse] interview as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Rittenhouse and his defense team” by FOX News.
