BREAKING: Rebel News Reporter ‘Threatened’ by CNBC Official During Ambush Interview at WEF (VIDEO)

CNBC’s managing editor allegedly threatened a reporter for the conservative Canadian website Rebel News after the reporter asked simple questions during an ambush interview at the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Avi Yemini, the chief Rebel News Australia correspondent, traveled to Davos, Switzerland, to cover the WEF’s annual meeting with the elites and globalists.

Yemini wrote on his Twitter account that he was threatened by a CNBC official.

“I was just THREATENED to be “punched out” by CNBC’s Intl. Managing Editor for politely asking him simple questions,” Yemini wrote.

“These are the THUGS that want to control the world. But he doesn’t scare me,” he continued.

The CNBC official was later on identified as Patrick Allen, the Vice-President and International Managing Editor of CNBC.

According to the WEF’s website, Patrick Allen:

BA in Economics. Former mini-cab dispatcher. Currently, Head of News and Programming, CNBC EMEA; responsible for CNBC business day programmes in the EMEA region; leads CNBC journalists, sets news agenda, manages key external relationships, budgets, live coverage and outside broadcast work. Interests: global markets and business, with a keen interest in finding solutions to youth employment.

“Sir, can I ask you what CNBC is doing here?” Yemini politely asked Allen.

“No, don’t put the camera on my face. Thank you,” Allen responded.

“Really, but you’re here as an invited guest and you’re an editor for CNBC. Don’t think there’s a bit of a conflict of interest,” Yemini replied.

“I’d like you to go away. I haven’t agreed to an interview,” Allen said while shoving the microphone away.

Rebel News reporter:  Don’t touch the mic. You’re meant to be speaking truth to power. Are you here just to take your marching orders? Is that what you’re here for?

CNBC: Do you want to go away?

Rebel News: Not really. I’m here to do what you should be doing.

CNBC: I can have you escorted off by security.

Rebel News: All right, do that. There you go. CNBC. Their job is supposed to be doing what he’s complaining I’m doing, and they’re calling security to escort me off the premises.

CNBC: You’ve been very rude to me this morning. So, I’d like you to take the camera off me.

Rebel News: I’ve literally asked you questions politely, which should be your job. That’s your job, sir. I’m doing your job. I’m just not getting paid for by Klaus Schwab.

Avi Yemini talked to Callum Smiles, another Rebel News UK reporter, about what Allen said as he walked into the building.

“You were inside as he walked in, a bit upset. What did you hear him say?” Yemini asked.

“I heard him say, I’m going to paraphrase it because I have the exact thing. But he came in sounding quite angry, saying, I’m going to punch him out. Paraphrasing there, right. Didn’t know it was about you until I came out, and then I heard somebody else complaining about you to your face. At that point, I realized Avi had a word of him,” Callum said.
