Candace Owens is Suing Facebook’s Fact-Checker Claiming They are ‘Activists for the Left’

There has been a lot of talk about big tech censorship following the permanent Twitter ban of President Donald Trump and the loss of thousands of conservative voices during the subsequent “Twitter purge.” While many social media users are looking for new apps to migrate to that are more friendly to free speech, Candace Owens doesn’t appear to be going anywhere.
