In just the latest segment to unintentionally further demonstrate why CNN+ failed miserably, host Brian Stelter decided to reframe the Biden administration’s new Disinformation Governance Board/Ministry of Truth as nothing more than a “Fox News story” while his guest described the Board as just “basic government bureaucracy.”
“Here in the U.S., there’s been an uproar recently about the Department of Homeland Security setting up what they call a Disinformation Governance Board. This has been mostly a Fox world story… I want to let people know what it is and what it isn’t, and there just has been a lot of right-wing uproar about what it is,” Stelter said on his show that doesn’t even crack 100,000 viewers.
Stelter’s guest Moria Whelan bolstered his argument while deploying a time-honored political debate technique called “lying,” claiming the board is “meant to bring together people to coordinate a lot of the efforts inside of DHS, that means law enforcement… emergency services like FEMA, they’ve all been doing counter disinformation efforts for a while to give us accurate information about human rights abuses, but also about disasters and where people can get assistance. So coordinating that activity, making it speak with one voice, and being a stronger advocate to tech companies and engaging the public in academia, that’s really what they’re after.”
“That sounds like common sense!” a clueless Stelter replied.
