Don’t Mention ‘Disinformation’: Networks Bury Biden’s Orwellian New Board

Here at NewsBusters, we’re keeping a continuing, day-by-day watchThe network attempts to conceal every detail about the Hunter Biden scandals. It’s time for different monitoring alert: “Disinformation Watch.” Last Wednesday, it was revealed that the Joe Biden administration has created a “disinformation” board that will be run by a partisan Democrat. As we approach the midterm elections, all of this is happening. 

The Orwellian attempts to muzzle free speech have been ignored by all the news media networks since last Wednesday. The only exception same on NBC’s Sunday chat show Meet the Press. Chuck Todd, the host, discussed this for one minute 23 seconds with Alejandro Mayorkas (Department of Homeland Security). 

He kindly tossed Mayorkas this softball: “Let me ask about a different concept. You have concerns about disinformation and misinformation within the DHS department. There’s some people that look at it and it looks like policing of speech. Could you please explain the purpose of this program?” 

 

 

Can you imagine the “Democracy Dies in Darkness”-style outrage if Donald Trump had done such a thing? Todd is not as polite. 

Mayorkas assured Todd that the new board “does not infringe on free speech, does not infringe on civil liberties.”

Nina Jankowicz is a partisan Democrat and has actually been involved in disinformation. This is what it looks like The Hill Report on Saturday 

She has been ridiculed for pushing the false “Russian disinformation” claim about the original reporting on Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop, stressing that “we should view it as a Trump campaign product.” She continued to spread that disinformation, including tweeting a link to a news article that she said cast “yet more doubt on the provenance of the NY Post’s Hunter Biden story.”

Jankowicz was also known for posting bizarre and funny moments to her Twitter account, like when she mocked a comedian. Mary Poppins, singing, “Information laundering is really quite ferocious. It’s when a huckster takes some lies and makes them sound precocious, by saying them in Congress or a mainstream outlet, so disinformation’s origins are slightly less atrocious.”  

But rather than mention any of that, the timid Todd on Sunday simply asked: “Do you think the person you chose to head it expressed too much politics on their Twitter feed, and it`s caused some consternation?” 

These are our current totals.

CNN did a good job of pressing Mayorkas even harder on Sunday. Dana Bash demanded, “Republicans are calling it Orwellian and comparing it to the ministry of truth in the novel 1984. Could you please clarify? How will it monitor American citizens?” Will it monitor American citizens?”

CHUCK TODDYou might be interested in another idea. You have concerns about disinformation and misinformation within the DHS department. There’s some people that look at it and it looks like policing of speech. Could you please explain the purpose of this program?

MAYORKAS : Yes. So we created, basically, an internal work group. It was possible, but we couldn’t communicate it better. It’s a working group that takes best practices with respect to our work that has been going on for years, best practices on how to do that work, the work of addressing disinformation that presents a threat to the security of our country, how to do that work in a way that does not infringe on free speech, does not infringe on civil liberties. The working group gathers the best practices, and then disseminates them to the operators.

TODD: Are you concerned that the person who was chosen to lead it displayed too many political views on Twitter? It’s caused some confusion.

MAYORKAS is an eminently qualified individual who has been recognized as an expert on countering the disinformation threat that poses a threat our national security from Russia, China, Iran and the cartels.
