CNN Pundit’s Bodyguard Charged with Assault after Removing Reporter Covering Her Speech
Tue, 20 Aug 2019 12:59:00 -0400
CNN Pundit’s Bodyguard Charged with Assault after Removing Reporter Covering Her SpeechCNN pundit April Ryan's security guard has been charged with assault after he forcibly removed a local New Jersey reporter from an event at which Ryan was delivering a speech.Charlie Kravotil, editor of New Brunswick Today, claims that Ryan's bodyguard, 30-year-old Joel Morris, approached him during Ryan's speech at The Heldrich Hotel on August 3 and stole his camera after he refused to stop filming.A video of the incident shows Kravotil, who secured press credentials for the event, following Morris into the lobby of the hotel to retrieve his camera. After the local journalist reclaimed his camera, Morris grabbed his arm, placed it behind his back, and shoved him out of the hotel.Morris has been charged with harassment, assault, and theft in connection with the incident.Kravotil says he was invited to the event and was allowed to film for roughly two hours before Ryan took the stage to deliver a speech, at which point Morris stole his camera but allowed other people in the room to continue filming. He called on Ryan to apologize for the incident in a Monday tweet.“She’s been silent about the unacceptable and illegal behavior of her bodyguard, Joel Morris, and we are still waiting for her comment on this unfortunate incident,” Kravotil said in a video posted to Twitter. “Maybe now that there are criminal charges, we might hear something from her. I hope, sincerely, that she does comment and I hope she does condemn this. This is unacceptable. . . . In our country, we have freedom of the press.”Ryan is a vociferous critic of President Trump and routinely disparages him for his rhetorical attacks on the press, even authoring a book on the subject last year entitled Under Fire: Reporting from the Front Lines of the Trump White House.

Tucker Carlson: Elizabeth Warren Is ‘Cory Booker-Level’ White
Mon, 19 Aug 2019 22:02:59 -0400
Tucker Carlson: Elizabeth Warren Is ‘Cory Booker-Level’ WhiteOn his first night back from vacation following the firestorm of controversy he set off by claiming white supremacy is a hoax, Fox News host Tucker Carlson made another cringeworthy comment when he used an African-American senator’s supposed lack of blackness to make fun of how white another senator is.During Monday night’s broadcast of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson welcomed on frequent guest Mark Steyn—who served as guest host while Carlson was on break—to discuss Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s public apology to tribal leaders over her Native American DNA test snafu.“Like anyone who’s being honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes. I am sorry for the harm I have caused,” Warren said at the Native American Presidential Forum in Iowa on Monday. “I have listened and I have learned—a lot. And I am grateful for the many conversations that we’ve had together.”Tucker Carlson Responds to Critics After Calling White Supremacy a Hoax: ‘Calm Down’After accusing the Massachusetts senator of using her previous claims of Native American ancestry to get ahead in her career, Steyn then took the opportunity to crack a joke at her expense. “As I always say, she is the whitest white since Frosty the Snowman fell in a vat of White-Out,” the conservative commentator exclaimed. “You can’t get any whiter.”Carlson, meanwhile, interjected by taking aim at a frequent target of his—Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), who also is running for the Democratic presidential nomination.“She’s Cory Booker-level,” the Fox News host cackled.Somewhat ironically, while Carlson was out, Steyn made similar comments about the New Jersey senator. “Meanwhile, you have someone like Cory Booker who’s been to Harvard, Oxford, and Yale Law School, the three best universities on the planet, pretending he’s like some homie from the hood,” Steyn said on Tucker Carlson Tonight earlier this month. Fox News Guest: Cory Booker’s ‘Pretending He’s Like Some Homie From the Hood’Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
