Nina Jankowicz, the chair of the new Disinformation Governance Board in the Department of Homeland Security, wanted Facebook to censor Breitbart News, joining the left’s calls for Silicon Valley to censor conservative news outlets in 2019.

Jankowicz, 33, whose past statements (and songs) came under scrutiny after her new job became widely known this week, once promoted the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory, and denied in 2020 that Hunter Biden’s laptop was authentic.

She has also called for increased regulation of free speech on social media, calling Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s speech  at Georgetown University on free expression “unfortunate,” and protested against the inclusion of Breitbart on the platform:

Left-wing groups have pushed for boycotts of Breitbart News since Donald Trump was elected in 2016, and efforts to silence independent conservative outlets continue in Congress, notably in the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA).

Jancowicz also suggested that Breitbart News repeated “Russian state-sponsored media” in her 2020 book, How to Lose the Information War: Russia, Fake News, and the Future of Conflict. She provided no evidence in the book for her claim.
