NY police comes down on RT correspondent
She was prevented from broadcasting and denied the use of her phone, but was later told she had done nothing wrong.
However, a live broadcast associate was told that our correspondent still could not broadcast live from outside the UN. Eurovision New York Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the company managing the site Ã¢â‚¬â€œ put out the following statement through its senior producer, Ian Johnson:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Your correspondent got into a confrontation with the New York Police Department and they have denied her access to our stand-up position outside the United Nations as a result. She has attempted to go back, and the police have again denied her access.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have been warned by the NYPD that our operation will be shut down if they see her involved in a live shot from our position,Ã¢â‚¬Â the statement says.
