Ron Skeans, a BBC cameraman, was shoved on the media platform by a Trump supporter who then hurled explicit insults at the press at President Trump's rally in El Paso, Texas on Monday, the BBC reports.
Driving the news: Per Bloomberg, BBC Washington correspondent Gary O'Donoghue told BBC Radio 4's "Today" that it was "an incredibly violent attack," adding that Trump's anti-media rhetoric is "a constant feature of these rallies." In a statement, the BBC said that Trump "could see the incident and checked with us that all was okay. It is clearly unacceptable for any of our staff to be attacked for doing their job."
Watch video of the incident, posted on Twitter by O'Donoghue:
