| Breaking News Updates | abc News

CBS’s “Face the Nation” had to issue a correction after a reporter claimed Sunday that Kyle Rittenhouse had crossed state lines “armed for battle” before his deadly meeting in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

In the initial report, reporter Mark Strassman suggested that Rittenhouse had crossed state lines from Illinois to Wisconsin with a weapon in his possession. However, testimony in court and interviews with police revealed that the Smith & Wesson M&P 15 Rittenhouse rifle used during the Kenosha riots was already in the town before its trip.

“Lots to unbox here, the current moment of this country of racial reckoning, self-defense, and self-defense claims by armed people replacing themselves,” Strassman added.

Defense attorney Mark Richards recently probed about the reporting that took place during the trial.

Insider reported that the idea that Rittenhouse traveled from Illinois to Wisconsin with the rifle in his possession was one of the main “myths” surrounding the case.

Rittenhouse claimed in court he was acting in self-defense during the Kenosha riots in August 2020 when he shot dead two men, Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and injured a third man, Gaige Grosskreutz.
