“Rightists have spent the last couple of days freaking out and invoking Orwell’s 1984 in response to something their political enemies are doing in America, and for once it’s for a pretty good reason. The Department of Homeland Security has secretly set up a ‘Disinformation Governance Board,’ only informing the public about its plans for the institution after it had already been established. The disinformation board, which critics have understandably been calling a ‘Ministry of Truth,’ purportedly exists to fight disinformation …. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, in her patented ‘You’re such a crazy idiot for questioning me about the White House’ manner, dismissed alarmed questions about what specific functions this strange new DHS entity was going to be performing and what its authority will look like.” (04/30/22)
