The Police Issued One Arrest Summons That Is Devastating for CNN


https://blackeyepolitics.com






Article:

CNN has a lot of problems.

Their ratings are going down the tubes, with layoffs becoming a regular occurrence.

And now the police issued one arrest summons that is devastating for CNN.

CNN loves to complain about President Donald Trump calling them fake news.

They claim he is attacking the free press when in reality, he is fighting back against a biased network that lies about him on a regular basis.

But for all their virtue signaling about the free press, CNN themselves couldn't care less.

Earlier this month, a bodyguard for CNN anchor April Ryan was caught on video attacking a local reporter in New Jersey.

While Ryan was at the New Jersey Parent Summit, a credentialed reporter for a local paper was caught in the crosshairs of Ryan's bodyguard.

The reporter, Charlie Kratovil of the New Brunswick Today, was a credentialed reporter who had every right to be in the hotel.

But after what video appears to show a brief disagreement, Ryan's bodyguard Joel Morris smacked Kratovil's camera.

The bodyguard then forced the reporter out of the hotel, physically pushing him out.

While Ryan has been silent on the incident, the New Jersey Police haven't.

This week, a New Jersey Court issued a summons for Ryan's bodyguard for the alleged assault.

The charges come after Kratovil spoke out against his treatment.

"This was more than just an assault on me," Kratovil said in a statement. "This was an assault on freedom of the press, and April Ryan should have immediately condemned the use of violence against a journalist."

Kratovil also went about Ryan for refusing to stand for his First Amendment rights and is planning to pursue legal action against her.

"Because Ms. Ryan has failed to publicly address or apologize for her role in this ugly incident, I am now seeking legal counsel to initiate proceedings that will hold her accountable for the unacceptable and illegal behavior of her employee," he said.

This lawsuit will be another blow to CNN, which continues to face a myriad of problems.

Yep, good for them, he assaulted that reporter. He has no right to deny people access to private property.

The article only tells HALF the story. As such, it is not just a half-truth, but a half-lie as well. What the article omits is that the "brief disagreement" was over Kratovil videotaping Ryan's speech against the rules of that event.

No reporter has an absolute "right" to be at a private function on private property. He had a privilege to be there, by virtue of his credentials and/or invitation. As long as he followed the rules. Violate the rules and they had every right to throw him out on his keister.

The legal question would be, did they first give him the opportunity to "leave quietly" (whilst also temporarily surrendering his camera to be erased)? And did he refuse? If the answer is "Yes", then at that point it became "Trespassing" and the bodyguard had every right to use "as much force as (reasonably) necessary" to effect his removal.

As for the headline - "Devastating for CNN"? Oh, puh-lease. I'm no fan of CNN but this is hardly devastating. Whatever happened to an article telling a story - the WHOLE story - without out hamming it up for the headline? Why does every article these days have to be written as if it's for The National Enquirer?

From other articles I've read on this, the reporter claims he was invited there. And was there for all speakers until Ryan. http://www.rightnation.us/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/erst060.gif
