Trump supporter 'violently attacks' BBC cameraman at rally after US president whips up anger over media
Mr O'Donoghue posted footage from Mr Skeans' camera on Twitter, writing: "This is the shameful moment when my cameraman Ron Skeans was attacked by @realdDonaldTrump supporter in El Paso - after the President repeatedly goaded the crowd over supposed media bias."
A BBC spokesperson said: "Ron Skeans was violently pushed and shoved by a member of the crowd while covering a President Trump rally in Texas last night. The man was removed by security and Ron is fine. The president could see the incident and checked with us that all was ok.
