Biden’s Former ‘Disinformation’ Chief Nina Jankowicz Returns to Demand ‘Transparency,’ Refuses to Disclose Funding

Democrat President Joe Biden’s former “Ministry of Truth” chief Nina Jankowicz is now leading a shadowy new group demanding “transparency” and “accountability” for so-called “disinformation.”

However, Jankowicz is refusing to disclose the funding behind her new “counter-disinformation” group.

The Biden admin’s former “disinformation czar” was ousted after an apparent attempt to create an Orwellian anti-wrongthink group within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

She has now launched a new nonprofit that declares criticism of “disinformation researchers” such as herself is a major threat to America.

“The campaign against counter-disinformation work is the greatest threat to freedom of expression and academic integrity since the McCarthy era,” Jankowicz said in a press release.

She continued by pledging that her group would not “allow it to continue.”

“Once researchers are free to conduct their essential work, the American people will gain a better understanding of the nature and severity of the disinformation threats we face,” she said.

“Disinformation knows no political party.

“Its ultimate victim is our democracy.”

The group, the American Sunlight Project, was announced as a bipartisan advocacy organization founded by Jankowicz.

Jankowicz claims the group was “launched to expose and oppose efforts to weaponize disinformation in the United States.”

“The organization will investigate the networks and money driving disinformation and educate the public about the threats disinformation poses to their daily lives,” it says.

“The first step in the group’s program will involve countering the organized campaign currently challenging the work of disinformation researchers.”

The group’s advisory board consists of Katie Harbath, a former Facebook executive, Emily Horne, a former National Security Council official, Ineke Mushovic of the gay advocacy group Movement Advancement Project, and Ben Wittes of the left-wing Brookings Institution.

Wittes was once described as the “bard of the deep state.”

Carlos Álvarez-Aranyos, the group’s co-founder, claims that “organized campaigns are preventing us from researching and understanding the threat of disinformation and organization an appropriate national response,” promising to “break the deadlocks holding us back.”

Despite the American Sunlight Project’s claimed pro-transparency agenda, the group refuses to disclose its funding.

This comes despite the group reportedly raising millions of dollars in funding.

In 2022, Jankowicz was appointed by the Department of Homeland Security to lead an ill-fated body called the Disinformation Governance Board.

An uproar over civil liberties ensued, including from 20 state attorneys general.

The Biden admin ultimately scrapped the idea.

Unsurprisingly, Jankowicz says the criticism of the board was, itself, “misinformation.”

Jankowicz had posted bizarre videos of herself singing about “disinformation.”

She also refers to herself as the “Mary Poppins of disinformation.”

WATCH:

“Misinformation” groups often purport to rate news outlets in the name of transparency.

They assign failing ratings to center-right news outlets and then refuse to share their data with journalists who want to check their methodology.

Conveniently, left-wing outlets, even those known to publish fabricated stories, are also celebrated as “trustworthy” sources.

In the past, they have been subsidized by the government and served to enforce government-sanctioned lines in the media.

Such narratives include claims that Covid did not leak out of a Chinese lab or that the vaccines are “safe and effective.”

“Anti-misinformation” efforts often hold only the barest pretext of being anything other than partisan enforcers.

They claim to rescue people from early warning signs that they believe could head down a path to extremes, which often amounts to a belief in center-right ideas.

Meanwhile, they actively advocate for left-wing falsities such as the New York Times’s debunked 1619 Project.

Even as they make a living criticizing others, “misinformation researchers” have played the victim as soon as people do not react to their work the way they hoped.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) called the scrapped Disinformation Governance Board an “un-American, anti-democratic, and a dangerous escalation of the Biden Administration’s embrace of government-endorsed censorship.”

Jordan said Americans should not trust Jankowicz to act “as the Biden Administration’s arbiter of truth.”

The new “sunlight” group wrote to the Committee faulting it for releasing excerpts from “misinformation experts” own testimony.

The group claims it has made them “targets for harassment.”

Jankowicz and her comrades lamented that “dozens of AI-generated images of former President Trump posing with black voters have circulated online.”

They insist that such images “are real, present-day threats to American democracy.”
