The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra is once again facing scrutiny after berating a woman for suggesting that he stole content and passed it off as his own.
“Identity theft is not a joke, Jim,” Jessica Fletcher said on Twitter, posting side-by-side images of nearly identical Tweets from Saavedra and another user named Logan Hall.

“Identity theft is not a joke, Jim,” is a reference to the television series “The Office.” Fletcher was needling Saavedra over the apparent stolen content.
But Saavedra privately messaged Fletcher to express his malcontent at her suggestion. She posted a screenshot of the conversation in a second Tweet, captioned, “Being a conservative clearly doesn’t mean you respect women.”
In the exchange, Saavedra berates Fletcher, and demands she remove her Tweet:
Fletcher later accused Saavedra of threats.
“Yeah he sent me lots of colorful DMs,” she said. “Threatening my work. Like ok bud.”

It’s likely that Saavedra is touchy over the subject of content theft, given that he has been exposed for such behavior before. He has a history of content thievery, well-known in conservative circles.
Big League Politics reported:
Up next on the list of internet “news” frauds – people with large Twitter followings who aggregate news and “break” stories without crediting the outlets who originally reported the stories – is Ryan Saavedra of Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro’s multi-million dollar GOP establishment-funded blog.
“Virginia Democrat Governor Ralph Northam refused to shake the hand of his black opponent E.W. Jackson during a 2013 debate for the lieutenant governor’s seat. Jackson tries to shake Northam’s hand and Northam wouldn’t even acknowledge his existence,” Saavedra Tweeted.
We broke that story seven hours before Saavedra Tweeted it without giving us credit. It was linked on DRUDGE. This is a habit of Saavedra’s. Nearly every original story that we write ends up on his Twitter feed, without referring back to Big League Politics.
This Tweet was only a few hours after Saavedra called Big League Politics demanding that we hand over a non-watermarked image of the Ralph Northam yearbook photo from the story that we also broke. Of course, we refused, knowing that Saavedra would simply steal our scoop. He hung up in a tizzy after vowing to find the photo himself. (Maybe try that before calling us next time, Ry-guy!)
One can only conclude that Saavedra has no real sources of his own. He simply recycles the original work of others onto his Twitter feed, slaps a “BREAKING” tag on the Tweet, and pretends it’s his own. This is not journalism – it is news aggregation. Exclusive stories by Saavedra, despite the millions of dollars behind the outlet he works for, are few and far between. The same goes for the rest of the Daily Wire crew – a bought-and-paid-for mouthpiece for weak establishment “conservatism.”
Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro did not immediately return a comment request.

CAUCUS CHAOS: Democrat Mouthpieces Try to Downplay Bernie’s Victory Because of Volunteer Shortages
In an effort to downplay the inevitably of Bernie Sander’s victory at the Nevada caucuses, CNN political analyst Laura Barrón-López was reporting about chaos taking place throughout caucus sites in the state.
She first Tweeted, “New: POLITICO has heard from multiple Democrats, campaigns on the ground that there is a shortage of volunteers at caucus sites Story is developing… 1/”
Then she followed up in another Tweet, stating “NSDP party officials are telling campaign representatives that there’s a deficit of volunteers across the state, and so they are asking representatives of campaigns to act as precinct chairs, per multiple sources on ground.”
Barrón-López continued talking about the shortage of volunteers: “Per Dem source: ‘I’m at Spring Valley High School and a lot of the Nevada Dem Party volunteers did not show up. They are worried about the precinct chairs showing up as well.’”
With Sanders winning, the Democrat establishment is clearly on the ropes.
They are trying to pull every rationalization possible to downplay and not recognize Bernie Sanders’ victories.
The Democrat leadership is clearly rattled and they’re starting to come to grips with the reality that Donald Trump will practically be a shoo-in for a second term.
