Reporter dragged for posting himself at home of paramedic who gave $10 to Rittenhouse defense

Giving a whole new meaning to getting ratioed, ABC4 Utah investigative reporter Jason Nguyen was dragged unmercifully when he posted a photo of himself on the doorstep of a local paramedic who made a $10 donation to the defense fund of Kyle Rittenhouse.

And the corrupt media establishment doesn’t understand why so many Americans see them as the “enemy of the people”?

One thing seems certain, that there are several troubling angles to the story that pretty much confirm there are two distinct sets of rules in America — one for the right, and one for the left, that is far more forgiving.

Rittenhouse is the now-18-year-old who stands accused of murdering two protesters in Kenosha, Wisc., last year, though he claimed he fired his weapon in self-defense — video of the shootings appears to support the claim.

“A Utah paramedic donated to the defense fund of Kyle Rittenhouse,” Nguyen tweeted. “It was first reported in the @guardian this morning. Rittenhouse is accused of killing two protesters in Kenosha, WI. I tried to get the paramedics (sic) side of things.”

Of the many troubling angles here, the quest to forgo due process in America may be the most alarming. Rittenhouse has been called a vigilante, a murderer and a trigger-happy white supremacist — there’s zero evidence to support the claim — by the left.

The second is posting images of a private citizen’s home, which Twitter apparently considers taboo — at least, when coming from the right.

By the way, the day after posting the tweet above, Nguyen shared this:

Just as troubling is the fact that the reporter is acting on hacked information, as The Guardian cited a data breach at a Christian crowdfunding website GiveSendGo as the source of the names of cops and other public officials who donated to Rittenhouse’s defense fund.

Needless to say, in the eyes of many, none of the above is appropriate:

BizPac Review reported on The Guardian’s actions, although the names of the individuals outed by the British newspaper were not disclosed.

You may recall Twitter (and Facebook) banning a damning New York Post report on President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in the run-up to the 2020 election because the story allegedly used hacked information from his laptop — Twitter featured The Guardian article atop its “trending” section.

Rittenhouse’s trial has been delayed until November, but the teen traveled from his home in Illinois to reportedly help protect Kenosha businesses during the rioting over the police shooting last year of Jacob Blake.

Following a familiar script, Blake was resisting arrest and attempted to get back in his vehicle — very similar to the events last week in Brooklyn Park, Minn. — when he was shot in the back. The shooting left him paralyzed from the waist down.

With chaos in the streets of Kenosha that night, an armed Rittenhouse shot one man who appeared to be chasing him, just as a gunshot went off nearby. The other man he killed had attacked him with a skateboard as he was trying to leave the area. A third protester involved was wounded by Rittenhouse. The established narrative is that the protesters were trying to disarm Rittenhouse.

Regardless of your take, the teenager has a constitutional right to due process and is innocent until proven guilty. That’s the very bedrock of American law.

As for investigative reporter Jason Nguyen, social media users didn’t need a trial to declare him guilty in the court of public opinion.

Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
