John Stossel Sues Facebook Alleging Defamation over ‘Fact-Check’ Label

Former TV journalist John Stossel has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Facebook seeking at least $2 million in damages, alleging that the company defamed him by adding “fact-check” labels to two videos he posted related to climate change.
