MSM reporter asks conservative WH correspondent: ‘Are you a racist?’ — Video

April Ryan Wintrich racistOn Friday, Lucian Wintrich, the White House correspondent for the conservative pro-Trump Gateway Pundit, said he was accosted and harassed by Fox Radio’s Jon Decker, who accused him of hating blacks, Jews and Hispanics and writing for a Nazi website.  After the incident, April Ryan, the White House Correspondent and Washington Bureau Chief for American Urban Radio Networks, held an impromptu interview with Wintrich and actually asked him, “Are you a racist?”

Here’s the video, tweeted by Chris Sheridan, Senior Producer for Al Jazeera English.  The question comes at about 34 seconds into the interview.

One person responded:

Sheridan said Wintrich was not assaulted:

Lee Stranahan said he wasn’t present at the briefing, but was told by multiple witnesses that Wintrich was harassed:

“Multiple people told me he approached Lucian and started calling him a Nazi and says he works for a white supremacist. Lucian’s a reporter for Gateway Pundit, run by Jim Hoft, a gay conservative. Not a white supremacist, not a white supremacist website.

What is true is that Decker accosted him, now here’s my opinion on that. It’s completely inappropriate…I didn’t see it myself but I talked to multiple people who did… Decker is a Fox News Radio reporter. It’s completely inappropriate

Lucian claims that he was assaulted and grabbed by Decker. I have not been able to confirm that independently. I have been able to confirm that there was some physical contact. I’m not going to get into the degree of physical contact…”

I guess Decker should be reprimanded or something like that…probably not let back in. If they want to give me his seat that’s ok but they’ll probably give it to Lucian. They should apologize, they should apologize. It’s serious, it’s serious.”

And adding insult to injury, a so-called “reporter” actually asked Wintrich — whose ancestors fled Nazi Germany — if he’s a racist.
