The journalist ejected from an event where CNN political analyst April Ryan was the keynote speaker told his tale Wednesday night, saying he was injured by Ryan’s body guard just for filming the event.
“I don’t know what what the misunderstanding was but I was definitely, you know, felt violated,” Charlie Kratovil, an editor for New Brunswick Today, told Fox News.
Kratovil was covering a speech given by Ryan at the 4th annual New Jersey Parent Summit, which focuses on “educating, empowering and preparing parents for our future leaders,” on Aug. 3 at The Heldrich Hotel.
After three hours covering the event “without incident,” Kratovil claims he was approached by Ryan’s security guard Joel Morris who demanded he stop recording, before grabbing the camera and walking out of the ballroom and into the hotel lobby.
As Kratovil and Morris begin causing a scene, Ryan explains to the crowd, “When I speak, I don’t have news covering my speech.”
Interesting, especially after Ryan complained a year ago about the way she was treated during a Trump Newser.
Kratovil of course blasted his removal saying he was injured in the scuffle out the door.
It’s been a bad week for CNN. Hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon both embroiled in their own scandals, and now this one caught on camera.
