Facebook’s fact-checker gets fact-checked

We reported recently how Candace Owens’ Facebook post/video was labelled as false information by an organization used by Facebook to fact-check content. Of course, Candace Owens is a popular Black Conservative commentator, which some allege is the real issue.

Owens’ video stated at the time that Biden was “literally and legally not the President-elect” which he isn’t until he is approved by the electoral college. However, Facebook’s fact-checker declared her video as “false” and the same message was given to everyone who shared it.

So, Candace got a lawyer, and the fact-checker was quickly fact-checked.

The Daily Wire explains:

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. […]

“Weeks ago, [Facebook] censored a post of mine which truthfully stated that [Joe Biden] is NOT the President-elect. So I got lawyers involved,” she 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.”
