"EPA Video Shows Security Guard Shove Reporter Out Of Building"

"Security footage shows an EPA security guard push an Associated Press reporter out of the agency's headquarters last year.

The video, obtained by E&E News under the Freedom of Information Act, shows AP reporter Ellen Knickmeyer inside the William Jefferson Clinton Federal Building for roughly five minutes on May 22, 2018, before a female guard pushes her out with two hands on her shoulders.

Knickmeyer was trying that morning to cover then-Administrator Scott Pruitt's high-profile summit on the agency's plans to confront PFAS — for per- or polyfluoroalkyl — chemicals found in drinking water."

Timothy Cama and Kevin Bogardus report for Greenwire February 26, 2019.
