Daily Signal: Breitbart Reporter Covering N.H. Senate Race Ordered to Leave Democrat's Press Conference

Breitbart News reporter Matthew Boyle was removed, without explanation, from a campaign event for Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in Exeter, N.H., yesterday despite the event having been advertised as a press conference open to media.

According to Boyle’s account, campaign staffers for the Democratic senator checked Boyle in and directed him to the back of the room where he gathered among other reporters.

Soon after, Boyle was approached by a staff member and the owner of ReVision Energy, a local renewable energy company at which the event was held, who asked Boyle to leave and claimed the event was not open to the public.

Breitbart News editor in chief Alex Marlow says the decision to block Boyle demonstrates hostility toward a free press.
