Former Misinformation Czar Nina Jankowicz created a GoFundMe to help her raise funds for lawyers so she can sue Fox News.
Nina’s Mad About Her Critics
Nina Jankowicz, the former czar of the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board, registered as a foreign agent to combat unwanted speech overseas a few months ago.
She has now resurfaced and seems eager to control conservative voices once again. On March 2, she created a GoFundMe page, soliciting funds to finance a defamation lawsuit against Fox News.
Claiming that her critics at the network used her “as a punching bag” and made “malicious and reckless false statements,” allegedly prompting her to resign her position, Jankowicz noted that she now intends to hold Fox News to account.
Biden’s Appointed Jankowicz
Jankowicz, known for highlighting that “freedom of speech does not guarantee freedom of reach,” was selected by President Joe Biden to lead the Disinformation Governance Board at the DHS, as announced on April 27, 2022.
However, her tenure as executive director was short-lived. The board was met with strong resistance and was even compared to the “Ministry of Truth” in George Orwell’s “1984” due to its controversial nature.
The board was “paused” three weeks after its announcement, culminating in its demise and with Jankowicz’s resignation on May 18.
Pursuit to Sue Opinions From News Broadcasters
Jankowicz requested $100,000 in her GoFundMe campaign, where she mentioned that shortly after her public nomination by President Biden, unfounded allegations emerged on social media that the Board was an Orwellian “Ministry of Truth,” and that she was “President Biden’s chief censor.”
Despite the Board having no role in speech arbitration or restriction. The following day, Fox News initiated highly personalized, misleading, and inflammatory coverage of her, spreading online conspiracy theories to millions of Americans.
“After all those years of advanced education, Nina Jankowicz became an internationally recognized expert on disinformation and not only that, she can’t even rhyme very well,” Tucker Carlson said in April 2022, referencing Jankowicz’s “Mary Poppins of disinformation” video:
In the video accompanying her request for money, Jankowicz highlighted other unacceptable opinions expressed on the network, such as when a cohost on “Fox & Friends First” said, “[T]his disinformation czar thinks it’s okay for her to edit your speech,” and on another occasion when Sean Hannity claimed, “Jankowicz is a conspiracy theorist who wants all Americans to believe her twisted opinions and lies are facts.”
