The same judge who banned MSNBC from the courthouse had no problem leaving Fox News and Tucker Carlson in a safe area to shoot a Kyle Rittenhouse documentary.

MSNBC was banned from the courthouse because a freelancer drove too close to the jury car, but Fox News is given special access to secure areas and the courthouse to make a documentary about Rittenhouse, and the judge has no problem with that.
Given these facts, it is clear why so many Americans believe the Rittenhouse trial was a show trial that the prosecution never stood a chance.
Either way, it looks like the game has been rigged and the scales of justice tipped firmly in the direction of Kyle Rittenhouse.
