“[W]e have concluded that there is no need for a Disinformation Governance Board,” DHS’s Homeland Security Advisory Council’s Disinformation Best Practices and Safeguards Subcommittee says in its final interim recommendation, released Monday.
The report signals that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) may be ready to abandon plans to reinstitute its infamous board, which was dissolved earlier this year, due to public backlash and fears that the Biden Administration was attempting to create an unconstitutional “Ministry of Truth,” a la George Orwell’s classic novel, “1984.”
But, it’s not over, yet:
- Since Monday’s release is only an “interim” recommendation report, the subcommittee’s conclusion in its final version, due in August, might change.
- The report qualifies its conclusion by saying that a DHS disinformation governance board is not necessary “at this point.”
The report suggests that DHS will be provided with recommendations by the advisory group on how to police disinformation.
The text of the interim report’s conclusion is presented below:
“We have now had briefings on the relevant disinformation-related activities of the Department. We are not ready, as of yet, to provide recommendations on the Department’s most effective approach to disinformation threats, including commitments to increase transparency and protect civil rights, civil liberties, and privacy.
“However, at this point, we have concluded that there is no need for a Disinformation Governance Board.”
