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.
Since the release of Robert Mueller’s report proving Trump didn’t collude with Russians to win the 2016 election, they continue to lose viewers every month.
They are now the lowest ranking of the major news outlets, only having an average of 744,000 viewers.
Even the left appears to be realizing that they are fake news, and are tuning out en masse.
Now there is evidence of one of their reporters suppressing the free press.
If it had been a Fox News reporter doing the same, the left-wing media would be up in arms, demanding their firing and prosecution.
But the left-wing media will continue to ignore this egregious attack on the press.
Instead, they will attack President Trump and his supporters, claiming that calling them “fake news” is the real threat.
