August 3rd surveillance footage from the The Heldrich Hotel shows New Brunswick Today editor, Charlie Kratovil, being forcefully removed from The 4th annual New Jersey Parent summit. Kratovil was scheduled to cover keynote speaker April D. Ryan, a CNN political analyst and White House correspondent. Kratovil says security guard, Joel Morris, stole his camera equipment in an attempt to prevent a video recording of Ms. Ryan’s speech. The situation escalated, leading to a confrontation in the lobby, where camera footage shows Kratovil being forcibly pushed out the door.
Kratovil gives his entire take on the altercation in a Twitter thread:
There has been no response from the CNN contributor and she is allegedly blocking those on Twitter who bring up the incident.
