Objectivity 4.3 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

Secretary Mayorkas announced Wednesday that the Department of Homeland Security created a Disinformation Governance Board to combat online disinformation. Federal and state lawmakers are expressing concerns with this new misinformation board, which they say is the Biden administration’s attempt to stifle free speech. Sen. Tom Cotton said in a tweet, “The Federal Government has no business creating a Ministry of Truth. The Department of Homeland Security’s “Disinformation Board” is unconstitutional and unamerican, and I’ll be introducing a bill to defund it.”
