Biden Admin. ‘Pauses’ Disinformation Governance Board

Gage Skidmore from Peoria, AZ, United States of America

The Biden administration put its plans for the Disinformation Governance Board on hold after receiving an onslaught of backlash.

The New York Post reports:

The Homeland Security board was set to be led by director Nina Jankowicz and had a mandate to fight the spread of “disinformation” that “can affect border security, Americans’ safety during disasters, and public trust in our democratic institutions.”

But following a backlash from Republicans and some liberals, who likened the board to an Orwellian “ministry of truth,” the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that the initiative has been put on hold.

The DHS decided to shut down the board on Monday and Jankowicz had written a resignation letter by Tuesday, according to the report. DHS officials then reportedly gave Jankowicz the opportunity to stay on and she is currently evaluating her options, the Washington Post reported.

Jankowicz raised eyebrows by suggesting some “verified” Twitter users should be able to “edit” other accounts’ posts.

“Verified people can essentially start to ‘edit’ Twitter [in] the same sort of way that Wikipedia is so they can add context to certain tweets,” Jankowicz said.

Elon Musk, who may be purchasing Twitter also said that Jankowicz’s comments are concerning.

It may be on “hold” for now, but they WILL activate it when they create another significant distraction. NEVER trust a demoRAT!

The fact that this even came to light tells you everything we need to know about its intentions.
Should be disbanded forever not for us to hear about it ever again. This should have scared everyone to the core!
