Candace Owen Targets Facebook in New Legal Battle

(WatchDogReport.org) – High-profile Republicans are often targets of Facebook and Twitter “fact-checkers.” President Donald Trump has been on the receiving end of this type of shadow censorship repeatedly since the election. Conservative commentator Candace Owens has also been subjected to this treatment, and now she’s fighting back.

On November 17, reports revealed Owens is suing Facebook over the fact-checks. She said she’s going to “fact-check the fact-checkers” and put the company through discovery so she can find out what’s really going on. She plans to sue the social media giant for defamation. Earlier this month she posted a video explaining why she wants to do it.

Republicans in Congress are sick and tired of the way Big Tech is operating, too. They want to amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to strip the companies of some of their liability protections. The idea is that if they continue to unfairly target people, they will be sued and maybe litigation will force them to change their discriminatory behavior.
