I just read the entire account and the reporter seems legit, the one who claims he was assaulted by the bodyguard. I hope the photojournalist was rolling when he was approached. The "photog" part of my nick here is short for photographer. I used to shoot for TV News and the times this has happened to me, I was always rolling, or recording. It boggles the mind that this CNN reporter told the bodyguard, who evidently was working for her, to physically stop the man from recording. If the facts bear out that she did, she deserves to lose her job

If it is a private event, yes you can. Perhaps they had a restriction against unauthorized filming of their event.

Kind of self explanatory, why can’t you understand that? By the I’m far from a Trump fan.

The POINT is that all the Trump fans are claiming being dragged / pushed out is ASSAULT.
So whether it's a security guard or a bodyguard or anybody else, you have to decide whether it's assault or not. The title of the person doing the pushing / dragging is immaterial. It does not change whether you regard it as assault or not.
Kind of self explanatory. Why can't you understand that?

If it's assault here, it's also assault when it's at a Trump rally.

I believe at this point we are getting away from what happened or didn't happen in this video. If you want to discuss security at Trump's events, maybe it's time to start a new thread.

The first thing I note is that the OP is trying to place the blame for this on CNN. He even calls April Ryan a "reporter" for CNN when actually she is a political analyst. She is paid to give her opinion. She is not a reporter for them. I am guessing the bodyguard is not connected in anyway to CNN, so it seems a stretch at best and a lie at worse to lay this at their feet.

I say CNN cuts ties with her pretty quickly if what is alleged actually happened the way it appears to have happened.

Sounds like you need to research when it is legal for security(also considering the difference between private and event) to go hands on, there are cases where it is legal, and cases where it isnt.

No way will CNN cut ties with her if it turns out the guy that was assaulted was conservative. CNN has been openly supportive of Antifa. They support assaulting non-liberals.

The issue is whether the act was illegal. If the reporter had been forcibly removed from the event
Because he refused to leave and was removed by security, then no law was broken. In this case, the reporter was in the public area and forcibly removed by someone who was not employee security of the hotel.
