USA, pro-Trump journalist Steve Baker arrested: “He participated in the assault on Capitol Hill”.  Him: “I was there as a freelancer”

Steve Bakerjournalist for the conservative US network Blaze Mediawas arrested Friday by the FBI. The accusation against him is that he participated in theassalto a Capitol Hill of January 6, 2021, when thousands of supporters of the former president Donald Trump invaded the headquarters of Congress in Washington to contest the result of the elections won by Joe Biden. According to authorities, Baker took part actively to the raid together with the crowd, remaining in the building for over half an hour before being escorted out by the agents: he also declared live on a local TV that he was “enthusiastic” of what was happening and that he totally approved of the actions of Trump supporters. Through his lawyer, Baker claims that he only participated in the riot freelance journalist and that he remained inside the Capitol for shoot videosthen sold to New York Times and to the network HBO. The reporter, in fact, has started working on a stable basis for Blaze Media only after the events on Capitol Hill, publishing numerous articles that cast doubt on the official version of the assault. He now faces four charges, including housebreaking and “disorderly conduct.”

In a video released by his newspaper, Baker is seen being escorted out of the editorial office by two policemen, with his hands locked behind his back. Identified in front of the court of dallas, was immediately released on bail: the next hearing will be held on March 14. “I don’t appreciate theintentional humiliation to which I was subjected. There was no reason to bring me before a court with my hands tied,” she commented. In the US the arrest has triggered a debate on freedom of the press and its limits and boundaries: second Glenn Beckfounder of Blaze Media and former political commentator for Fox News, “those in positions of power are ready to react when confronted with narratives that deviate even slightly from the official version”. Baker’s defender, William Shipleyspoke instead of a “judicial proceeding selective e targeted against a conservative writer.” The case, however, is not isolated: in recent months two other journalists, David Medina and Owen Shroyer, have been arrested for taking part in the events on Capitol Hill, and the second was sentenced to sixty days in prison.
