Accuracy in Media

On Monday, February 11, an unidentified man wearing a tan coat and a Make America Great Again cap violently shoved journalists and camera operators on the risers designated for press.

The unidentified man shoved BBC’s Ron Skeans and screamed, “F**k the media,” before being restrained by a blogger also wearing a Make America Great Again cap. The unidentified man was removed by security within seconds.

Moments later Skeans ended up gesturing a thumbs up when President Trump asked, “You alright? Everything okay, please? Okay, thank you.”

A Trump staffer suggested the man was drunk.

Today, BBC producer Eleanor Montague confirmed via Twitter that Skeans was okay.


In response, BBC contacted White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders asking for a “review of security arrangements” for rallies were the media will be in attendance.

“It’s clearly unacceptable for any of our staff to be attacked for doing their job,” said a BBC spokeswoman.
