Lying tweet from People magazine about Market Basket protests

People ragazine has sunk to outright lying. (It may have been doing that for a long time; I don’t pay much attention to it.) It tweeted:

Market Basket grocery chain workers are rioting – because they want their beloved fired boss back

There has been no rioting or violence. The worst that’s happened is one incident of possible reckless driving, which ended in a dismissal of charges, and some unnecessary rudeness to people applying for jobs. The new management says job applicants have feared for their safety, but as far as I can tell they haven’t substantiated this claim. I have been at two of the rallies and haven’t seen anything remotely resembling a riot.
