Ex- Seattle TV journalist, Jonathon Choe, was barred from a media tour of a new homeless megaplex because the King County Executive's communication team told him he's "not a member of the media." He currently works for the Discovery Institute, a public policy think tank. Choe was fired from KOMO after his coverage of a Proud Boy's rally (he was called a white supremacist though he is Asian).
