Department of Homeland Security Sets Up ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ to Fight ‘Misinformation’
The Department of Homeland Security is setting up a Disinformation Governance Board in an attempt to combat “misinformation” online.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas spoke about the “just established” governance board during a congressional hearing on Wednesday, arguing it would help reduce domestic threats to the United States.
The team will focus on irregular migration and Russia, according to a report from Politico’s Daniel Lippman.
Nina Jankowicz, a fellow for the Wilson Center, confirmed reports that she would direct the board, sharing her official government portrait on her social media profile.
