Thursday morning on NBCNews.com, Russian collusion-obsessed reporter Julia Ainlsey filed a story that alleged a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo demanded officials “make public comments sympathetic to Kyle Rittenhouse” after the Kenosha riots. Across the interwebs and on TV, it was offered with implication of basic, collusion, falsehoods, and the encouragement of vigilantism.
But as it turns out (and like we saw with Ainsley’s golden calf in the Mueller probe), the hubbub was all for naught. In actuality, a basic reading of the article and memo obtained by NewsBusters revealed what Ainsley peddled was fake news and charged DHS officials with complying what was known about Rittenhouse’s case using — get this — news reports.
At the time of this blog’s publication, this hitjob and disgust with a government document offering facts fetched 22 minutes and 11 seconds across CBS, MSNBC, and NBC programs.
