NEW YORK (AP) — 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, 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.
