What happened to equal reporting?
This is typical behavior for the Left these days. If they don’t like your opinion or reporting, you don’t get to have it! This has been seen on college campuses across the country. Conservative speakers have been constantly shut down and not allowed to speak by protests.
Now it seems that reporters trying to cover the special election in Georgia are being restricted. The Washington Free Beacon was immediately escorted out of a Jon Ossoff Event the night before the big election. They couldn’t even get a straight answer to why they were being banned! Scroll down for more details.
“The Washington Free Beacon was told by Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign that it was not welcome to cover remarks that he was scheduled to deliver to supporters on the night before Tuesday’s special election.
The Free Beacon was approached immediately upon entering Ossoff’s Monday night event by Ossoff spokesperson Sacha Haworth, who proceeded to escort the reporter out of the event.

Asked why the Free Beacon was being restricted from covering the event, Haworth said, “Thank you very much for your interest in covering our race.” Asked why the Free Beacon wasn’t being allowed to cover the race despite its interest, Haworth said, “Thank you very much for your interest in covering our race.”
Numerous reporters gathered inside the campaign office for Ossoff’s speech, during which he said that “politics does not have to be about … division,” according to the Associated Press, one of the outlets granted access to the event.
It is unclear whether any other outlets were restricted from covering the event. Ossoff’s campaign declined to answer whether any other outlets had been barred.”
Do you think it was right for the Free Beacon to be blocked? Leave us a comment below
