Daily Wire’s Saavedra Berates Woman for Pointing Out Stolen Content

Ben Shapiro’s viral Tweet guy was caught stealing content yet again, and melted down when he was exposed for his racket.

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.
