Joe Biden’s Minister of Truth, Nina Jankowicz believes that verified users like herself should be authorized to edit the tweets of others in order to “add context”.
She explained that she would be eligible to edit tweets because she’s verified but also claimed that there are many users who are verified but shouldn’t be. She called them “not legit”. She gave an example; if Trump were still on Twitter and he tweeted something about voter fraud, verified users would – under her plan – Be able to edit in context from lawsuits, or quotes from officials refuting the fraud.
“I am eligible for it because I’m verified, but there are a lot of people who shouldn’t be verified who aren’t, you know, legit, in my opinion. I mean, they are real people, but they’re not, you know, trustworthy.” She said.
The clip from this zoom call went viral and brought widespread mockery to Jankowicz who will soon be the arbiter of free speech.
Despite being appointed to a board delegated to policing disinformation, Jankowicz has her own, lengthy history of spreading disinformation.
For example, she was known for using the, now widely debunked Steele dossier as ammunition against President Trump. She also claimed that the Hunter Biden laptop story, which has now been proven by the New York Times, was simply “Russian Disinformation”.
This is where the board gets dangerous. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the board will focus on deliberate misinformation from the Russian government, but the Biden Administration labels virtually everything that they disagree with “Russian disinformation”.
