Fake news reporter April Ryan’s bodyguard is charged with assaulting a real reporter.

A bodyguard for a CNN fake news reporter is facing criminal charges after he reportedly took a journalist’s camera and twisted his arm violently as he removed him from an event in New Brunswick, New Jersey earlier this month.
The event took place at the NJ Parent Summit in the Heldrich Hotel on Aug. 3 where CNN’s White House correspondent April Ryan was addressing the audience. Charlie Kratovil of New Brunswick Today alleges he was violently accosted by 30-year-old Joel Morris, who was working as Ryan’s security detail, for trying to record the event.
The video footage can be seen here:
Kratovil filed a criminal complaint accusing Morris of harassment, assault and theft. He alleges that Morris injured his arm and shoulder while grabbing him and forcibly removing him from the facility before taking the camera. Kratovil was later able to retrieve the camera.
Kratovil claims he was invited to the event by a public relations firm, and recorded other speakers for two hours without any problems until Ryan took the stage. She was apparently the only speaker who didn’t want her words to be heard by the public, and she seemingly sent a thug to do her dirty work and hurt a real journalist for putting her on the record.
“What I will say, when I speak, I don’t have news covering my speeches,” Ryan declared to the crowd, asserting that she is above scrutiny.
The Society of Professional Journalists released a statement in favor of Kratovil and against the CNN fake news hack Ryan.
“While journalists may have no special rights superior to members of the public, they do not have fewer rights than others,” they said in a statement.
“A no-photography policy should apply to everyone. Nor should the perceived viewpoint of a news organization be regarded as grounds to deny admittance to a member of the media; people who make news do not have a license to dictate how and by whom they are covered,” they added.
Ryan has refused to comment about why she was so desperate to deny Kratovil the ability to cover her speech.
“Her silence is deafening at this point. It’s been more than two weeks,” Kratovil said. “Anybody who’s a journalist should be condemning this.”
Ryan has frequently cried and complained about President Donald Trump’s treatment of the media, claiming she has been the victim of death threats. She released a book, “Under Fire,” last year whining about how tough she has it as a corporate news reader in the age of Trump.
“There are people out here who really are concerned with my safety, and there are people out here [who] really could care less about my safety. I don’t like talking about it anymore, but it’s real, and it’s a turning point,” Ryan said while promoting her book in an NPR interview last year.
As usual, the CNN hack was projecting completely. If anyone is a threat to real news reporting, it is Ryan and the rest of the professional deceivers who she works with at the fledgling cable news station.
