MSNBC and NBC Banned From Rittenhouse Trial for Violating Judge’s Orders

Share this story:

The leftist duo of MSNBC and NBC has been banned from the Kyle Rittenhouse trial courthouse, Judge Bruce Schroeder announced from the bench.

The ruling came after police had detained a man who was following the jury bus, trying to photograph jurors. The man was later reported to the judge as “James J. Morrison,” who claimed to be a producer for NBC News.

The jurors are anonymous by order of the court. They have been riding in a bus with its windows covered to keep them from seeing any signs about the case.

Schroeder said the person who followed the jury bus had been told by his boss in New York to do so. “The matter is under further investigation at this point,” he said. NBC officials said he was a freelancer working for the network.

The judge called it an “extremely serious matter” and said it will be “referred to the proper authorities for further action.”

The egregious actions of MSNBC/NBC add to a growing count of incidents that has seen Schroeder’s directives and rulings ignored, most notably by members of the prosecution. 

Jurors in the case continue deliberations, even as a defense motion for mistrial, in response to prosecutor’s withholding video evidence, is under consideration.
