The reporter’s name is James Morrison and the MSNBC producer is named Irene Byon. Morrison claimed that he was told to follow the vehicle under the supervision of a producer based in New York named Irene Byon according to Schroeder.
Judge: “I have instructed that no one from MSNBC will be allowed into this building for the duration of the trial. This is a very serious matter and I don’t know what the ultimate truth of it is, but absolutely it would go without much thinking that someone who is following the jury bus – that is an extremely serious matter and will be referred to the proper authorities for further action.”
The Kenosha Police Department announced this morning that they took a suspect into custody last night.
The person was working for a national media outlet and was suspected of trying to photograph jurors.
The suspect was from MSNBC — what a shock.
Earlier this morning, the courthouse media coordinator asked if there was anyone from MSNBC/NBC here to confirm the identity of that person. That person was NOT with any media outlet.
