Nothing to See Here: WashPost Tells Readers to ‘Ignore Hysteria’ on Biden’s Disinfo Board

The Washington PostIn a tone-deaf article, the Editorial Board attempted deflect criticisms about the Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board.

The Post, in an editorial headlined, “Ignore the hysteria over the Disinformation Governance Board,” made clear it supposedly sees no serious problems with the blatantly pro-censorship board, despite evidence to the contrary; “Despite what some in the Republican congressional leadership might tell you, the Department of Homeland Security is not starting up a ‘Ministry of Truth.’”  Sure, the rollout was “ham-handed,” but the board could actually do a “great deal of good,” the editorial board bleated. Since its announcement by Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas of the Department of Homeland Security, (DHS), the Disinformation Governance Board has been under attack.

The Post tried to put a positive spin on the idea of sharing data with “government actors” to target alleged “viral lies and propaganda … This is an effective function if done right. However, multiple members or advisors of the censorship board have themselves pushed disinformation in the past, including self-proclaimed “Mary Poppins of disinformation” and current DGB executive director Nina Jankowicz. Furthermore, MRC Business and MRC Free Speech America exclusively revealed that a co-leader of the board, Jennifer Daskal, has multiple ties to leftist billionaire George Soros. 

Also, President Joe Biden and his White House have urged or worked with social media companies to increase censorship more than once, leaving little doubt as to the DGB’s nefarious designs.

The Post dismissed the board’s issues as a mere a lack of transparency in detailing the board’s function, in conjunction with the “Soviet-sounding” acronym “DGB”: 

“As long as fair-minded observers have to guess at what the board’s role is, players who have more nefarious agendas will have ample opportunity to, yes, spread disinformation.” 

It is obvious that any critic of the censorship boards established by and controlled under a left-leaning administration would be disinformation.

MRC Free Speech America found previously that Republican legislators were censored by 54 to 1 more than their Democrat counterparts. An additional MRC Free Speech America survey found that Big Tech platforms had censored Joe Biden 646 times during a 2-year period.
