The Moral Of This Story Is: When Liars Lie And Get Caught In Their Lies - By Snopes.com

CLAIM: Angry Bernie Sanders supporters threw chairs during an adversarial Nevada Democrat convention in May 2016.

UNPROVEN

WHAT'S TRUE: Video captured during the Nevada Democrats' convention depicts a man briefly picking up a chair before placing it back down without throwing it.

WHAT'S FALSE
: Despite extensive YouTube, Periscope, and photographic documentation captured by supporters of both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, no available images document anyone's throwing chairs at the Nevada convention.

EXAMPLE:


We're there chairs thrown during the chaos at the DNC convention in Nevada ?

Supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders during the Nevada Democratic Party’s convention at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel on Saturday.
From Bernie Sanders Supporters, Death Threats Over Delegates

The senator’s supporters were incensed at a state convention they believe epitomized a rigged political system, with some threatening officials online.

ORIGIN:On 14 May 2016, Democrats held a third-tier convention in Nevada, the events of which were, by all accounts, adversarial. Supporters of Bernie Sanders claimed that rules were adjusted and schedules changed without notice, while supporters of Hillary Clinton claimed Sanders supporters were violent and obstreperous and resorted to throwing chairs.

Much of the initial reporting came from local journalist Jon Ralston, who live-tweeted events as they occurred at the convention on 14 May 2016. While Ralston didn't report at the time that chairs were being thrown at the convention, he later tweeted that:

The chair-throwing claim was repeated across election coverage. In an interview with MSNBC's Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz repeated, in concert with video footage of a man holding a chair aloft, the refrain that Sanders supporters had been throwing chairs at the convention:

The video shown during that segment was credited to the YouTube account of a "Bud Meyers," but we viewed Meyers' uploaded footage from the 14 May 2016 convention and were unable to locate the clip that included the image credited to him by MSNBC. The only relevant video we could locate on his YouTube account was a clip mocking (rather than confirming) the chair-throwing rumor:

The only intact footage that matched MSNBC's claim and imagery shows a man of unknown affiliation briefly lifting a chair before placing it back down without throwing it....

So, is all of the liars: Starting with Jon Ralston, Roberta Lange, DWS, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, "News" Readers at CNN and MSNBC (you'll know who) will APOLOGIZE to:

1). Bernie Sanders
2). His Nevada Delegates
3). The Chair That Was Never Thrown
4). The Pope (for forgiveness -- for they knew not who they thought would prove their lie FALSE -- Bernie Supporters that is)
5). Anyone in the USA and Around World That Believed Temporarily They Were "non-bias" or "journalists at all"
6). Ohio State Senator and Sanders Surrogate Nina Turner who said on DAY ONE #NoChairWasThrown
7). Whatever else you might like to throw (not being a chair) in...

MUST READ/MUST SPREAD: Counterpunch - The Faux Fracas in Nevada: How a Reporter Manufactured a Riot

Jon Ralston, the dean of political reporting in Nevada, has spread nothing less than a pack of lies about what went down at the state’s Democratic convention on Saturday. And the fact averse oligarchic national media has run completely riot with the provable falsehoods. No chairs were thrown at the convention Saturday. No death threats were made against the chair of the convention Roberta Lange. And Bernie Sanders delegates were not simply mad because their louder shouting was ignored.

Ralston has been the culprit behind each of these falsehoods; and the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, and a dizzying array of other outlets have swallowed them whole then regurgitated them for their much more massive audiences.

While as late as 2012 Ralston could be counted on as someone with a known Liberal establishment bias who would nevertheless stand firm where it came to truth and journalistic integrity, his ethics began to slip in the years since. (And let’s be clear, refusing to write for an outlet anymore that pulled a column unfavorable to Harry Reid is honorable; waiting over two years to reveal that fact is a bit dastardly.)

Here are the details of the lies originating or spread by Ralston, followed by how they spread among the chattering elite who attempt to pass themselves off as unbiased media:

Ralston reported live from the convention for most of the day, but decided to leave before tensions boiled over. Nevertheless, it was taken as a simple fact that he had observed Sanders supporters throwing chairs when “Roberta’s Rules” were enforced with finality at the end of the proceedings.

As it turned out, Ralston finally admitted last night that he hadn’t seen this himself but was relying especially on local reporter Andrew Davey. Davey first said he had still frames showing the chair throwing which he would publish. He has not produced the stills in question, but did retweet a still image of a chair held high that was initially posted on Reddit. I spoke with the person who posted it to Reddit and confirmed that it was grabbed from the video now widely seen which shows that other Sanders supporters quickly took away the chair in question. I asked Davey by Twitter if he still had photos to publish, then criticized him for retweeting the Reddit image instead. He blocked me.

Also, this tweet is from SATURDAY, May 14 around 8:13 pm ET -- Screenshot by us at Independent Underground Radio LIVE by Jon Ralston, showing his clear bias and intent to start the "train" of blaming Bernie Delegates only --- over any facts --- for what happened in Vegas last Saturday.



Jon Ralston should be called out for this type of Ratf***ing type of reporting. It is flat out disgusting and sad for a so-called "Journalist".

This is a MUCH WATCH video as this much truth telling may never be seen in corporate media, again.

Have To Come to The Conclusion....

The media is full of s**t.

So is whatever establishment politics means. Full of it.

They want to control our minds, thoughts and free will. So full of s**t.

Guilt us into their thinking. Guilt us into a vote. Oh, so incredibility full of it.

As if we don't have free will....

To believe in what is right, To Believe in OUR conscious. To Vote **** No Matter Who We Are Voting For. How full of it can they be?

Beyond the point of common understanding that if we believe their s**t, we are no better than blind sheep. Blind sheep you say?

Yes, to the point we just do, instead of think, question, question again and ponder -- then decide what is best or best left alone.

Why do WE keep falling for the same, stale, overly used up s**t?

Have you asked yourself why -- really why?

Are you scared? Are you afraid? Are you trying to get it to fit in? Do you think maybe one day if you wish hard enough -- the s**t will change?

Absentia!!!

Google it!

If you are sick and tired of the s**t, do what YOU THINK is right. Not because of guilt, or a demand but because in the end - we are born ALONE and will die ALONE.

Because what you do in the voting booth or don't do is up to you.

Because you don't have to check every section of a ballot.

Because in some states, you can if you want, write in "Mickey Mouse". It probably won't count but if you feel better afterwards...

Because you don't have to keep falling for the s**t.

And while you at it, find New Media. The Alternative Type Like "Independent Underground Radio LIVE" and tell to s**t to take a long hop off a short pier.

Now, don't ya feel better now.

Things Are Not As Bad As the Propaganda Machine Make Them Out To Be In NY!!

First, LOOK AT THIS:



Want Some BETTER NEWS FOLKS.....

DRUMROLL.....

"Bernie has won he won 50 of 62 counties in New York. Guess what that means! By PROPORTIONAL DELEGATION by CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS - it is a possibly Bernie might WIN more Delegates or Hillary's overall gain might be 15+ or LESS".

Before folks are throwing themselves at the heels of the Clinton News Network and MSNBillClinton -- They Would Be WISE to Remember How the PROPORTIONAL DELEGATION by CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS thingy, works.

Thank You the 50 Counties outside of NYC for CARRYING THE NIGHT for Bernie Sanders​! You Gave Our Guy The Fighting Chance He Needed Tonight!

Oh and Buffalo (Erie County) is within a 300 vote margin.

Bernie Sanders Just Filed Paperwork To Sue The DNC. Here’s Why.

Source: Think Progress

Late in the day on Thursday, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) filed paperwork to continue an ongoing lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee. The reason surrounds an incident with the Hillary Clinton campaign that occurred more than three months ago.

The lawsuit argues that the DNC unfairly barred Sanders from accessing critical voter information — specifically, a 50-state “voter file” containing information about how to reach potential voters. The DNC briefly suspended Sanders’ access to that file in December, after one of his staffers improperly accessed Clinton’s voter data.

At the time, Sanders’ campaign officials admitted that their staffer did improperly look at Clinton’s data. But they contended that it was also the DNC’s fault, because a DNC software vendor allowed a glitch in the system which ultimately made Clinton’s data available. The glitch also made Sanders’ data available to the Clinton campaign — though no one on Clinton’s staff looked at it.

More complications arose. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz accused the Sanders team of exporting and downloading Clinton’s voter data to use at a later date. Sanders campaign officials denied this charge, and said they did not do anything with the information. “We did not gain any material benefit,” said Sanders’ former national data director Josh Uretsky, who was later fired over the incident.

Eventually, the DNC suspended Sanders’ access to the voter file. One day later, the DNC and Sanders came to a deal, and Sanders’ access to the voter file was restored.

Still, the Sanders’ campaign sued, arguing that the DNC overreacted by suspending their access, and had harmed their ability to campaign on an equal playing field with Clinton. Moreover, Sanders’ attorneys argued that the DNC broke its contract with the campaign, which stated that the DNC must give notice before suspending access to information. The campaign is seeking $75,000 in damages.

“The DNC, in an inappropriate overreaction, has denied us access to our own data,” Sanders campaign Weaver said at the time. “In other words, the leadership of the Democratic National Committee is actively trying to undermine our campaign.”
