Fox says it did not pay for Rittenhouse film and interview

Kyle Rittenhouse enters the courtroom to hear the verdicts in his trial at the Kenosha County Courthouse in Kenosha, Wis., on Friday, Nov. 19, 2021. Rittenhouse has been acquitted of all charges after pleading self-defense in the deadly Kenosha shootings that became a flashpoint in the nation’s debate over guns, vigilantism and racial injustice. The jury came back with its verdict afer close to 3 1/2 days of deliberation.

NEW YORK — Fox News on Saturday said it did not pay Kyle Rittenhouse for any special access during his murder trial or after his acquittal.

Hours after he was found not guilty in shootings during a Wisconsin protest on racial injustice, Fox announced that Rittenhouse would give his first interview to Fox’s Tucker Carlson and was participating in a documentary being made by Carlson’s team.

Rittenhouse’s lawyer, Mark Richards, said that a Fox documentary crew was embedded with Rittenhouse’s team against his wishes.

Richards told The Associated Press on Saturday that he didn’t think the filming was appropriate and that he had tossed the crew out of meetings several times.
