An RT reporter was threatened by capitol police and the Senate Relations Committee after asking Rand Paul about his endorsement of Mitt Romney. †The police threatened to remove all of RTís press passes for all of their reporters and arrest the journalist in question.
Luke Rudkowski talks with Abby Martin of MediaRoots.org and RT about U.S. Senator Rand Paul's attempt to get her arrested and stripped of her press credentials for asking him tough questions in the Capitol building. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtO5INu-VY4
A week after our video with Abby Martin came out on YouTube, the RT office, where Abby works, got an ominous phone call from the Senate Media Relations Committee. The Committee was acting on behalf of Rand Paul and threatened both Abby and the entire RT news organization. The threats included ambiguous "charges" for violating the rules of the Committee floor, Abby's possible arrest and the termination of her and the entire office's press credentials.
After a month of meetings and deliberation, the Senate Media Relations office backed down and did not make good on any of their threats.
