Facebook Forced to Issue Correction After Humiliating Challenge

After censoring another Conservative voice, Facebook was forced to issue a stunning reversal.

Political commentator Candace Owens challenged a “false” rating from a third-party Facebook fact-checker and she won.

Earlier this month, Owens announced that she was taking legal action against the fact-checkers used by social media platforms. Owens brought the case because she became tired of being censored on Twitter and Facebook by third-party fact-checkers, as well as seeing fellow conservatives being silenced on social media.

Owens retained a pair of lawyers to represent her in the lawsuit, including attorney Todd McMurtry, who was part of the legal team representing former Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann. Owens is reportedly suing fact-checkers from USA Today and Lead Stories, according to the Daily Wire.

“It is time to fact-check the fact-checkers,” Owens said. “I’m going to put these suckers through discovery and figure out what the relationship is that they have with Facebook.”

Owens launched a website titled “Fact-Check Zuck,” which says, “Our freedoms are being stripped away. The overlords of Big Tech are determining what Americans can and cannot say, share, like, and post.”

“Support our legal efforts today as we fight back against Facebook’s fact-checkers, confronting those who are suppressing free speech, thought, and expression across our great country,” the site says.

“I wanted to show that these fact-checkers just lie, and they usually go unchecked because most people don’t have the money, don’t have the time, and don’t have the platform to go after them — and I have all three,” Owens said.

Owens celebrated her first victory in the case against the social media behemoths on Saturday.

“Weeks ago, @Facebook censored a post of mine which truthfully stated that @JoeBiden is NOT the President-elect,” Owens wrote on Saturday. “So I got lawyers involved. Conclusion? @PolitiFact uncensored the post & admitted that they LIED by rating my post false. The fact-checkers are lying for Democrats.”

“At 8 Months pregnant, I unfortunately cannot fight on the ground alongside patriots like I am used to, but I am taking every measure to fight these communists in the court room,” the conservative firebrand added. “It is my goal to expose these lying ‘fact-checkers’ one by one. @JoeBiden is NOT the President-elect.”

PolitiFact issued a correction and removed the false rating.

“Correction: PolitiFact originally labeled this video false in our capacity as a third-party fact-checker for Facebook,” PolitiFact wrote on Facebook on Nov. 25. “On Nov. 20, an appeal to that decision was made on behalf of Ms. Owens. PolitiFact approved the appeal on Nov. 20, determined that a correction was appropriate, and removed the false rating.”

Owens argued that Joe Biden is not technically the president-elect as of yet, he was only named as the president-elect by media outlets, which is not authorized to name the president-elect. Biden is projected to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election, but the president-elect will not officially be named until the Electoral College cast its votes on Dec. 14, once all states have officially certified their results.

President Donald Trump is currently challenging the results in the election and has filed several lawsuits in critical swing states.

    • Candace is such a great woman and she should run for president in a few years. The senate is disgusting they bring Zuckerberg and that twitter jerk to testify and they never punish these creep. These companies need to be busted up and these CEO should be arrested.

    • Wish I had a law degree. Would make it my life’s mission to try to sue the evil out of what social media has become today. Sue for a correction & several million $ at a pop for defamation of character…keep ’em in the game as long as I can.. Would take cases for others pro bono…just for the love of seeing the “demonic advocates” squirm. Keep ’em in court forever

  1. How much were they fined ? My bet is zero . At best they may have had to pay lawyer fees, but for what they are doing they should have paid a heavy fine, or have been shut down. They are NOT making mistakes, they are lying, and doing so for a purpose.

  2. It’s called the “brown wall syndrome”, they keep throwin sh*t against the wall and see what sticks! Even after the half as*ed apology or “correction, the damage is done. Almost like the way they planned it, eh?

  3. revealed on Glen Beck Zuck paid 350 million to pay off officials to make sure Democrats win the election. I AM PISSED

  4. About time someone with the platform, time and money pushes these liars against the wall! Mr. Suckerberg and his palls (Twitter, Google, the MSM should all be sued and held accountable for their illegal actions! Break them up. Fine them billions. Then, throw them all behind bars and lose the keys!

  5. Having been banned for 6 times, 3 times 30 days each, I value the truth Mrs Owens is depending on.
    It is time for the NAZIS and TYRANTS of fakebook, twats, and gogle /yourtube to be dethroned and thrown to the depths of the oceans.
    I went on to Parler/ Rumble. Although there are some difficulties, it is so much better. I can say anything I want to put down the DEMONRATS and their minions who refuse to accept the truth.
    Winston Churchill said it best
    TRUTH IS INCONTROVERTIBLE.
    PANIC MAY RESENT IT.
    IGNORANCE MAY DERIDE IT
    MALICE MAY DISTORT IT
    BUT THERE IT IS!
    It will always be the truth!

  6. These social media website owners keep getting caught, appear before congress, apologize, then go right back to repeating what they’ve always done. Big financial consequences would make them ‘hear’ better. Stop accepting their apologies and take legal/financial action against them. Now.

  7. Hi Candace bravo!
    I was in France when the President was tested positive with Covid-19, I sent a message to support him and First Lady by clicking on a link. I received a message by censors “saying my answer is a scam”. So I supposed that my mail never reached the President.

  8. Good for Candice Owen! Good for the U.S.. ! I get told in wrong every time someone does a fact check & believes it’s the truth. Bravo Candace & bravo to the Judge who heard her case. We need the honest Judges to stand up against the injustice being done to the citizens of the USA

  9. I agree, along with Candace Owens, that Free Speech should not be edited or fact checked except with direct contact with the writer. I have had my replies and comments edited and written up as not acceptable to unknow, un-named “Fact-Checkers.” It is not a good American FAIR Business.

  10. Zuckerburg reminds me of the Dork in school that would get a wedgy every day because he is a dork and a jerk
