    among a zillion other reasons its a terrible idea is the chinese would get their claws in a backdoor and any facts that implicated china as in the wrong would be described as racist disinfo, probably banned from social media. nd this would be justified with lies about increased violence vs asans caused by misinformation.

    we alraedy hear it. free speech isnt free anymore if it incites violence. @Winston1 you carry the flag for this with regard to jan 6th. trump says he won, just like a billion other candidates named clinton and gore, and you call it insurrection, all media falls in line and describes it as the "big lie".

    and even if it is the big lie, we dont need it fact checked by govt and recommendations about it or anything made to media.

    we need govt media overlords like we need a fucking hole in our heads. this is important. even rex knows its a bad idea, but he cant say he has an opinion for partisan reasons. this is why our currnet political divide is so dangerous. people will not take a position on something they know to be terrible, purely because they are slaves to their party dogma.

    rex goes so far with the party dogma he blames 100% of the covid deaths under trump on trump personally (but notably not china, media wont allow that!), but zero of the deaths under biden on biden. sounds absurd but thats actually his opinion.

    and @Winston1, you are also poor at critical thinking with regard to the media and TDS. you need to see how overt hatred for trump is seen as the crown jewel of media opinions and anything bad about him is lauded and amplified. if you understaood this you could have a more sophisticated point of view. this will of course make you angry, and like rex you will want to insult me in response. its ok i can take it.

    Again you dodged the question, obviously because you have no valid answer that supports your fantasy.

    Your fear or hope that the Biden administration would do something unconstitutional does not constitute any reality except your own psychology.

    The Biden administration will not suddenly have a new mission it didn't already have.

    The Biden administration will not have new legal authority it didn't already have.

    The Biden administration will not have new monitoring capabilities it didn't already have.

    The Biden administration will not have new private allies in that quest it didn't already have.

    Apparently, the motive for announcing a "Board" was to alert the public that the administration recognizes a problem and is actively doing something about it, and wants some employees entirely dedicated to it, but the goals and methods were already entirely within the scope of DHS authority, which is why I don't care one way or another about a "board" or some new job titles.

    Sorry, anybody who would call her "Minister of Truth" deserves no attention.

    Let me know when the Board actually commits an unconditional act. Otherwise this outrage is nothing more than your usual right-wing dog whistling.

    what is the dog whistle indicating? racism? dog whistlins is signaling something. what is it the right is signaling in this case? resistance to government media control?

    if trump wins again do you want him to manage the misinformation board?

    but thats the exact point of the board. fight disinformation with truth. calling it that is describing exactly the ostensible point of it.

    What exactly is the problem? And, other than to spread propaganda, censor and stifle free speech, what can this agency possibly do to stop it? Why can't people decide for themselves? This will only further divide the country

    They are going to use it to persecute those that don't agree with them or toe the line. DHS was started to protect us from foreign terrorism and terror attacks on our soil.
    The Washington swamp has transformed it all into a way to spy on US citizens including co-opting big tech into becoming an arm of "state security". Federal intelligence agencies have turned inward and now spend more time spying on it's own citizens than doing decent work overseas. Throw in political actions, salting and staging/entrapment, fake FISA / fake charges from the once great FBI and the average American doesn't have a freaking chance.
    This isn't the United States anymore and hasn't been for a while. They aren't even trying to hide it anymore.
