Biden says democracy is in danger. He’s right.
According to Fox News:
The leading Republican lawmakers on the House and Senate Homeland Security Committees are criticizing the Department of Homeland Security for further “politicizing” itself in the name of dispelling “disinformation.”
The rebuke from Rep. John Katko, R-N.Y., comes after an investigative report published leaked DHS documents detailing how the agency is still working with Big Tech to combat disinformation on social media on a variety of topics.
The documents, first reported by The Intercept Monday, revealed that while DHS disbanded its controversial “Disinformation Governance Board” this year, the agency is still working to combat misinformation on a range of topics including COVID-19, vaccines, racial issues, the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan and Ukraine aid.
“Reports of DHS’s involvement in efforts to be the arbiter of truth on wide-ranging topics are extremely concerning,” Katko fired back Tuesday in response to the report.
