A liberal billionaire tweeted out a defense of Kyle Rittenhouse and the media's first response was to ask if his account had been hacked

Nov 13th

Liberal-leaning billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman's defense of Kyle Rittenhouse is worth reading in its entirety, but it's the media's alleged response to it that puts the cherry on top:

Got that?

Just got a call from the media asking if my Twitter account was hacked. That is, the reporter couldn't conceive of the idea that I could believe that Kyle is innocent because I am not a right winger. Crazy.

That is not, at all, hard to believe: The media have been so uniformly lined up against Kyle Rittenhouse for the high crime of defending himself from violent attackers that it's not at all outside the realm of possibility that a reporter would ask such a thing.

No hacking going on here, though; just thoughtfulness and common sense, something sorely lacking among professional journalists.
