This is not to absolve the security guard for what he did, just to explain things better. These security guards sometimes think they have way more authority than they really have. (After my time in TV news, I then worked in security some)
Silly question: Can Paul Blart actually arrest you?

Sorry not liking the narrative.

Security guys are NOT cops. Period.

Conclusion - they really don't don't care about press freedom. They only want what works for them.
Ryan has other professional roles outside of CNN, no? Does CNN represent the majority of her professional work today?


You seem to be conflating Ryan as an individual with CNN as an organization. Has Ryan made "freedom of the press" a personal crusade? I have no idea.


It's obvious what your intent is here. If this was a Fox contributor you wouldn't be saying anything.


Just because Mark Levin shows up on Fox, is Fox responsible for anything and everything he might say and do? No.

On one post I worked on, we had the power to arrest people in the neighborhood we patrolled. I never did. We were always told to call the sheriff's department when we needed someone with actual authority.

Agreed. A lot of security guards think they are though. Some were denied the chance due to various reasons. I don't know anything about April Ryan's bodyguard, but it sounds lke he thought he had authority he did not have at the hotel.

So you all think that credentialed journalist should be allowed to cover the news and events, and should not be barred from events? You support freedom of the press in this context?

That is so interesting. I agree. Does that apply to the POTUS too? Should he be able to prevent credentialed journalist from covering his events? Asking for a friend...

Go back to post #6. He was invited by the organizers to cover the event.

Did the organizers of the event have the OK from the hotel to invite him?

Why are you defending their hypocrisy? The hotel did not put him out - Ryan's bodyguard put him out.
