A BBC correspondent shared on social media a video of his colleague being attacked at President Donald Trump's rally in El Paso, Texas Monday night, laying blame with the increasingly anti-press rhetoric the president spouts at his public appearances, including at this one.
A campaign official for Mr Trump later suggested the attacker was drunk, according to BBC News. Chants of "let him go" can also be held ringing out from a small section of the rally, where earlier the president had repeatedly cast aspersions on the media.
BBCWashington correspondent Gary O'Donoghue said the attack was "incredibly violent" and "was a constant feature of these rallies - a goading of the crowds against the media".
According to a BBC report, the man had been attacking various news crews, but Skeans got the worst of it, the blow so blindsiding him that the camera dipped to the floor and swung around crazily until the man was restrained.
The BBC'sWashington editor Eleanor Montague the crowd had been "whipped up into a frenzy" before Mr Skeans was assaulted.
"It is clearly unacceptable for any of our staff to be attacked for doing their job", he added.
