Renowned journalist April Ryan made the claim that the United States is not safe for journalists during a discussion of a Washington Post columnist who was killed in Turkey.

The remarks came during a discussion on the murder of Jamal Khashoggi  at Politicon Sunday evening and featured Axios’s Jonathan Swan and Breitbart’s Alex Marlow.

“It’s infinitely safer here [in the US] for a journalist,” said Swan.

“It’s not safe here for journalist,” replied Ryan, leading Swan to ask “You don’t think it’s safer here than Saudi Arabia or Turkey.”

Marlow then mocked Ryan’s comments by saying she was “a character of Breitbart,” which sparked a fierce back-and-forth between the two.

Politicon is an annual convention in Los Angeles featuring various journalists, pundits, and politicians. The event took place Saturday and Sunday.
