Daily Wire Reportedly Takes Legal Action Against Candace Owens

C’mon, Ben Shapiro. What’s the deal?

Trying to avoid a debate, eh?

By now, most of you readers should know this phrase:

Truth fears no investigation.

And a debate is similar to an investigation, if not the vocalizing of what one has found in their investigation to prepare for the debate.

It all boils down to truth.

So, why the gag order against Candace Owens?

Is truth not on your side, Shapiro and your cohorts at the Daily Wire?

New York Post reports:

The right-leaning news and commentary site Daily Wire obtained a gag order against former host Candace Owens despite co-founder Ben Shapiro claiming he wanted to publicly debate her about Israel and antisemitism, according to a report.

The Daily Wire secretly sought to muzzle Owens through a private arbitrator after she left the company in March, wrote Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald in his Locals newsletter on Thursday.

The gag order was approved as Shapiro and Daily Wire CEO Jeremy Boreing were publicly negotiating with Owens on an agreed-upon venue, date and time for a debate that had been widely anticipated by readers and viewers on social media.

Boreing told Greenwald that his report “is inaccurate to the point of being false.”

He did not elaborate.

“I’m sure you can appreciate how fraught a high-profile break-up like this is. For that reason, we are trying to resolve our issues with Candace privately,” Boreing is quoted as telling Greenwald.

Owens told Greenwald she “can neither confirm nor deny” his report.

“I wish I could comment on this but I can’t.” she said:

The Post has sought comment from Daily Wire and Owens.

According to Greenwald, the gag order bars Owens from making any comments that could disparage Daily Wire or be perceived as harming its reputation.

An arbitrator agreed with Daily Wire’s contention that Owens’ social media posts on X challenging Shapiro to a debate while questioning his views on Israel were “disparaging,” Greenwald reported.

Prior to her departure from Daily Wire, Owens was one of the site’s most popular hosts.

She joined the Daily Wire in 2021 after having come to prominence as a black conservative who was urging African-American voters to “BLEXIT” — a term meant to connote the abandonment of the Democratic Party.
