Special Edition: Protecting or Threatening America? ‘Disinfo Board’ Explained

The NewsWorthy

Earlier this week, we told you about the Disinformation Governance Board. It’s a new group within the Department of Homeland Security. Officials say it will fight the spread of misleading or false information that could have real-life consequences, especially when it comes from the Russian government or human smugglers. 

But there’s not a lot of information yet about how it will work. Some even worry it will turn into something like the fictional “Ministry of Truth” that pushed state-sponsored propaganda in the novel “1984.”

We hope to break down the arguments from both sides of this and clear up any confusion you may have after seeing some of the headlines. To help us do that, we’re welcoming back the woman known as “America’s government teacher,” and host of the popular podcast “Sharon Says So,” Sharon McMahon.
