Conservative firebrand Candace Owens Takes on Netflix’s “Making a Murderer” in New Docuseries
Conservative firebrand Candace Owens is known for fearlessly challenging cultural norms, regardless of political leanings. Her latest endeavor is a 10-part docuseries aimed at deconstructing and debunking the immensely popular Netflix series “Making a Murderer.”
“Making a Murderer” is a true crime documentary that revolves around the story of Steven Avery, a man initially wrongfully convicted of murder before being found guilty of a different murder. The series has faced criticism for its alleged bias in favor of Avery and its portrayal of law enforcement.
Owens, backed by the resources of the Daily Wire, is determined to tackle this subject with the thoroughness it deserves. In a recent interview with the New York Post, Owens and director Shawn Rech wasted no time in calling out the alleged ethical misconduct of ”Making a Murderer” directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos.
“We have recordings of them telling Steven [Avery] that this is his movie — and that they hope it gets him out,” Rech revealed.
Owens also criticized the Netflix documentary for promoting anti-police rhetoric and called for greater accountability among nonfiction filmmakers. She even went as far as demanding that Netflix return the Emmys the show had won.
“You almost got away with this documentary,” Owens asserted. “You made it seem like you were just interested in following facts and then suddenly someone comes behind you and shows how much you intentionally left out — how intentional you were in leaving those bits out. They should be ashamed, they should be embarrassed, they should return their Emmys.”
The new docuseries, titled “Convicting a Murderer,” is currently available for Daily Wire Plus subscribers, with the final episode set to release on October 26, 2023. The first episode is accessible to the general public.
Owens has been actively promoting the series, including a captivating appearance on a podcast where she engaged in a spirited debate with sex workers.
