Ana Kasparian, far-left co-host of progressive news program “The Young Turks,” admitted she was “wrong” for assuming Kyle Rittenhouse chased Joseph Rosenbaum before fatally shooting him last year amid rioting and protesting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following the police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake.
In reality — and according to videos TheBlaze examined just two days after the incident — it was quite clear that Rosenbaum was the aggressor and was, in fact, chasing Rittenhouse that night.
It isn’t so clear why Kasparian assumed the opposite all this time — though even the prosecuting attorney in Rittenhouse’s murder trial last week falsely implied the Rittenhouse-chased-Rosenbaum narrative. But hats off to Kasparian for admitting she was wrong.
“Initially I was under the assumption that Rittenhouse was the person who was chasing after Joseph Rosenbaum — that’s how it had started,” Kasparian said on camera. “But I was wrong about that.”
She also said she wanted “to correct the record: I was, in fact. wrong about that. Look, these details matter, because if you’re gonna make an argument that you acted in self-defense, there needs to be some proof that there was an imminent threat.”
Kasparian added: “Now, what really mattered to me was how all of this unfolded. What was the thing that sparked it? What started all of it? And to show you the evidence to reinforce that I was wrong about that, I wanna go to this video that shows how everything really started.”
She interrupted her commentary with the video report breaking down the timeline that night, first showing a very angry Rosenbaum hollering “Shoot me!” at rifle-toting folks in Kenosha there to protect businesses from looting and arson.
