Conservative author and commentator, Candace Owens, recently delivered a major blow to “fact-checkers” claiming to be independent.

The political activist challenged and won against Facebook fact-checker, Politifact, for tagging her post as “false” and effectively censoring it from the social media platform.

“Weeks ago, @Facebook censored a post of mine which truthfully stated that @JoeBiden is NOT the President-elect,” the BLEXIT founder wrote.

“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,” she added.

Owens earlier said she launched the case after continuously being flagged on Twitter and Facebook by third-party fact-checkers, who she claims is just out to silence conservative voices on social media.

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

She reportedly retained a pair of lawyers to represent her in the lawsuit including Atty. Todd McMurthy, who was also part of the legal team that represented former Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann  —  when the latter became a victim of a botched media coverage in 2019 of his encounter with a Native American elder near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

“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,” the conservative firebrand said.

Owens, celebrated her first win against the social media behemoths on Saturday.

“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 courtroom,” she said.

“It is my goal to expose these lying ‘fact-checkers’ one by one.@JoeBiden is NOT the President-elect,” she added.

PolitiFact issued a correction on November 25 and also removed its “false” rating on Owens’ post”

“Correction: PolitiFact originally labeled this video false in our capacity as a third-party fact-checker for Facebook,”PolitiFact wrote on Facebook.

“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,” it added.

Owens earlier launched a website called “Fact-Check Zuck” which aims to go after “fact-checkers” of social media giants.

“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 website said.
