Earlier this month, conservative author and commentator Candace Owens announced that she’s connected with big-name lawyers to sue Facebook fact-checkers, who allegedly flag “misinformation.”
“It is time to fact-check the fact-checkers,” Owens said in a video posted to Twitter. “I’m going to put these suckers through discovery and figure out what the relationship is that they have with Facebook.”
Giving an example of the censorship, Owens said one of her “opinions” concerning coronavirus, which was initially shared by a doctor, was “fact-checked” by the platform’s third party arbiters.
“Quite literally a doctor gave his opinion about COVID-19, which I shared, and Facebook issued a strike on my account because they said only information that they agree with about COVID-19 … was acceptable,” she said, as reported by Fox News.
