I typically don’t do media rants…mostly because I assume that the facts are twisted most of the time which is why I cross-reference most news I read.. But this is a particularly egregious example of lazy reporting and interviewing.
Grosskreutz was interviewed on Good Morning America Thursday and this is what CBS News reported.
“Gaige Grosskreutz, who was shot and wounded by Rittenhouse, said Thursday that it was difficult to watch Rittenhouse testify. Grosskreutz acknowledged carrying a gun that night but denied ever aiming it at Rittenhouse.”
Of course the interviewers never followed up with the obvious question: “That statement doesn’t jive with your testimony.” Nor did they state that during the trial Grosskreutz admitted to pointing his weapon at Rittenhouse.
Add in this gem:
“When asked what the public should take away from the case, Grosskreutz said, “I think the most important thing to remember is that Kyle Rittenhouse was an active shooter, he murdered two men, and he attempted to murder me.”
So they allow Grosskreutz to continue the narrative despite his testimony contradicting the narrative.
