DHS Pauses Disinformation Governance Board
The Disinformation Governance Board launched by the Department of Homeland Security lasted three weeks. The Board was part of President Biden’s administration's efforts to address false information and fight disinformation. NPR interviewed the Board’s leader, Nina Jankowicz, when she resigned after relentless attacks from conservatives. “I'm coming out of this experience pretty pessimistic but, again, still committed to the work because I don't want my son to grow up in a world where you can't tell truth from fiction and where you can't trust anything anybody says. That's not something that I'm going to abide. And I'm going to keep working on it as long as I have the energy to,” says Jankowicz.
