Fact Checkers. Who Are They?

Censorship is common nowadays among the media and big tech and you hardly even notice it anymore, but you should. Controlling what you hear and what you say seems like a scene from the Twilight Zone, but it is rather sinister and a lot like brainwashing. We just take the first amendment for granted so it seems unthinkable that big tech will decide what we are allowed to read or say. So who are these so-called fact-checkers, why do they care what we say, and what options do we have?

The fact-checkers are part of a large network many of which are funded by left-wingers George Soros and Hillary Clinton.
