Biden to accept nomination for president, closing out Day 4 of DNC

first_imgOLIVIER DOULIERY/AFP via Getty ImagesBy LIBBY CATHEY, ABC News(MILWAUKEE) — In his third campaign for president, former Vice President Joe Biden — who found his “comeback kid” moment in South Carolina on this year’s primary trail — will formally accept the Democratic Party’s nomination for president in a speech Thursday — 33 years after he made his first bid for the White House.Under day four’s theme of an “America’s Promise,” Biden will finally assume center stage at the Chase Center in Delaware — more than 800 miles away from Milwaukee, where the speech was slated to take place in person before the coronavirus pandemic upended the committee’s plans and forced a shift to a mostly virtual format.Thursday is the Democrats’ last night to make their case in primetime before Republicans take the spotlight next week and President Donald Trump accepts his party’s nomination from the White House.“Being president doesn’t change who you are, it reveals who you are,” the Democratic National Committee said in a release. “On the final night of the convention, we will hear from those who can speak to Joe Biden’s leadership and character. Joe Biden will speak about his vision for uniting America to move us forward out of constant chaos and crisis, and for delivering on that promise for all.”Thursday’s primetime programming includes speeches from four of Biden’s former opponents in the race for the Democratic nomination — Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and Andrew Yang — along with two officials who were on his shortlist for running mate: Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.While Trump has slammed Democrats this week for airing pre-taped DNC speeches, Biden said he doubts the party will ever return to conventions of the past, deeming the new format provoked by the pandemic landscape “inclusive,” “creative” and “a template for the future.”Here is Thursday’s lineup of speakers:Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J.Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete ButtigiegCalifornia Gov. Gavin NewsomAtlanta, Georgia, Mayor Keisha Lance BottomsSen.Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis.Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill.Sen.

Fact Check: This man in orange T-shirt has nothing to do with West Bengal violence

first_imgA video of a man bleeding profusely, held by two policemen and being interrogated by a Rapid Action Force (RAF) personnel, is doing rounds on the social media.The man is wearing an orange-coloured T-shirt and according to the claim made by a Twitter user, he sports a tilak on his forehead. By giving this description along with the video, the user tries to imply how the TMC goons in the garb of “bhagwa goons” were involved in the violence that broke out during the roadshow of BJP president Amit Shah in Kolkata on May 14.Real Name – Mohammad NisarOrange T-shirt,Tilak on ForheadNow you can understand many thingsYou can also connect this to the so called “Bhagwa Goons” doing Violence during Amit Shah Road Show in Kolkata,They were all TMC Goons pic.twitter.com/AkkRZNnJwF ravi singh (@mitthu) May 16, 2019Most social media users took the video literally, believing that the video was from the recent Kolkata violence. At the time of filing this story, this tweet gathered more than 7,500 retweets and around 8,400 likes.India Today’s Anti-Fake News War Room (AFWA) has found that the video is about a week-old and is from Jharkhand’s Jamshedpur, not West Bengal.The archived version of the post can be seen here.Twitter user Ravi Singh uploaded the video with the caption, “Real Name – Mohammad Nisar Orange T-shirt, Tilak on Forhead (sic). Now you can understand many things. You can also connect this to the so called ‘Bhagwa Goons’ doing Violence during Amit Shah Road Show in Kolkata, They were all TMC Goons.”advertisementAs his tweet attracted controversy followed by the blame game between the TMC and BJP, Ravi defended saying he had never claimed that the video is from Kolkata.DONT BE A FOOLI haven’t said this video from KolkataThis is just an example, Orange Tshirt, Tilak doesn’t mean Hindu or a worker of BJP-RSSits easy nowdays to defame Hindus, Hindu organizations with fake hindu getup, many Left secular organizations and jihadists doing this ravi singh (@mitthu) May 17, 2019The video is also viral on Facebook.We spotted a comment in the Twitter thread by a user @madhu_ganeriwal. He mentioned that the video is of the incident that took place in Jamshedpur on May 12 when two groups got into a scuffle over elections. Chowikidar Madhu (%follow back) (@madhu_ganeriwal) May 17, 2019To confirm the incident, we ran a search on the internet and found a news bulletin video of News18 which reported about the clashes in Jamshedpur’s Jugsalai. At 2 minute and 19 second, the same man can be seen detained by police. On the May 12 voting day, a scuffle broke out in Jugsalai and local police had to fire tear gas shells and lathicharge to control the situation.We also found the news report in Times of India according to which the clashes broke out between the BJP and Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) workers outside the polling booth in Jugsalai. Two accused were also arrested. Boomlive also debunked the claim.Hence, it is clear that the viral video is not from West Bengal but Jamshedpur.Also Read | Fact Check: Misleading picture of cow deaths goes viral again on social mediaAlso Read | Fact Check: Video of street play claiming to be of TMC candidate goes viral INDIA TODAY FACT CHECK ClaimThe man in the video is a TMC goon who was involved in the violence that broke out during the roadshow of BJP chief Amit Shah in Kolkata.ConclusionThe viral video is from Jamshedpur, not West Bengal.JHOOTH BOLE KAUVA KAATEThe number of crows determines the intensity of the lie.1 Crow: Half True2 Crows: Mostly lies3 Crows: Absolutely false If you have a story that looks suspicious, please share with us at [email protected] or send us a message on the WhatsApp number 73 7000 7000last_img read more
