Conservative author and commentator Candace Owens challenged left-leaning fact-checking site PolitiFact, a partner with Facebook, over a “false” rating — and won.

Not only did PolitiFact remove their “false” rating and retract an article on why Owens’ video was allegedly false, but the site offered an added “correction” admitting their fault.

The article goes on to state the following:

Owens’ video, which was posted on Nov. 12, offered commentary on the 2020 presidential election, and was captioned, “Joe Biden is literally and legally not the President-elect. So why is the media pretending he is?”

The video was rated false and every user who shared the video received an alert for sharing ‘false’ content.

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

PolitiFact’s response stated:

Correction: PolitiFact originally labeled this video false in our capacity as a third-party fact-checker for 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.

“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,” Owens said in in response to the correction. “It is my goal to expose these lying ‘fact-checkers’ one by one. [Joe Biden] is NOT the President-elect.”

Owens says she reached out to PolitiFact on Nov. 20 with legal representation and immediately heard back.

According to Owens, the response read as follows: Upon first glance, this video from Ms. Owens was labeled false from PolitiFact in error. We already have removed the label from the video and you should now be able to see it unobstructed. As we’re about 25 minutes into this, we still don’t know how or why the post was labeled ‘false.’ We are investigating and hope to share more information with you formally on Monday.

“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 regarding the retraction.

PolitiFact issued the correction with pressure from Owens’ legal representation, which she shared with the public on Saturday. The “major win,” she said, was PolitiFact essentially admitting “that Joe Biden is not the President-elect.”

Owens is currently suing fact-checkers from USAToday and Lead Stories, who allegedly flag opinions as “misinformation.”

“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.

Owens noted that the fact-checking led to her Facebook page being demonetized.

  4. They censor the truth, denying us the soapbox. They steal our election, denying us the ballot box. They dismiss our lawsuits with prejudice, denying us the jury box. What remains? Only the ammo box!

    Sue the “fact-checkers.” Reject the phony election results. Take our cause to the Supreme Court. And if all those still fail, LOCK AND LOAD!

  5. Candace Owens has got it going on !!! If our coward Republican elects weren’t so busy crawling on knees with mouth open they could learn a thing or two from this great woman. Candace Owens does not play the racial game, she is a true American.
