Accuracy in Media

Some of the protesters are the same ones in the Cliven Bundy standoff with the federal government in Nevada in 2014, including one of his sons, Ammon:

The protestors have said they stormed the federal land in a remote area near Burns, some 280 miles southeast of Portland, to protest the prosecution of a father and son facing jail time on an arson charge for burning 130 acres of land.

Dwight Hammond Jr., 73, and his 46-year-old son, Steven, have claimed that they lit the fires in 2001 and 2006 to reduce the growth of invasive plants and protect their property from wildfires. However, prosecutors said the fires were set to cover up poaching.
