Secret Service Agent Throws Photojournalist to the Ground at Trump Event

A United States Secret Service agent choked and threw photojournalist Christopher Morris to the ground at a Donald Trump event in Virginia. It is unclear what provoked this response at this point in time, but it is phenomenally disturbing.

Mr. Morris has spent more than 40 years covering conflicts internationally and is a highly regarded photojournalist who was on assignment for Time.

  1. From what I’ve seen and read, Morris stepped slightly out of the press pen – media members are not allowed to leave the pen until the event is completely over. When the secret service agent confronted him, Morris replied “Fuck you.” He was then assaulted by the agent.

    Trump also recently said that he would “open up” libel laws and make it easier to sue the media.

    Dangerous time to be in the media…
