Reporter Arrested While Covering News Conference

From a New York Times story by Eduardo Medina headlined “Reporter Arrested While Covering News Conference in Ohio”:

A reporter who was covering a news conference on the train derailment in Ohio that led to the release of toxic fumes was arrested following a live shot on Wednesday, after officers told him to be quiet while the governor spoke, according to the cable channel where he works, NewsNation.

The reporter, Evan Lambert, had been waiting for the news conference in East Palestine, Ohio, to start at 3 p.m., but it was delayed until about 5.p.m. The later time coincided with when he was scheduled to do a live shot for the show, Mike Viqueira, the Washington Bureau Chief of NewsNation, said in an interview on Wednesday night.
