It appears that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is no longer satisfied with Fox News and Tucker Carlson spreading fear and wants to deliver their own version of fear-induced news.
As NBC New York revealed, DHS has decided that the best way to counter Americans growing disdain over the never-ending war on terror is to open its very first government-approved disinformation portal.
“New Jersey’s Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness has unveiled a new disinformation portal designed to help people identify truth-obscuring, manufactured information — from deepfakes to altered videos and text and the groups behind them.”
DHS claims the government has a ‘higher responsibility’ to disseminate news to the public.
“Disinformation can have an insidious impact on the overall threat landscape,” NJOHSP Director Laurie Doran said. “In an age where the public has become increasingly dependent on online forums and social media platforms to stay informed, we all have a higher responsibility to scrutinize the information we’re consuming.”
Oh no, insidious ‘truth-obscuring, manufactured disinformation’, is now an ‘overall threat landscape’ to Americans. What will the Feds do to help us?
“The reality is no one platform or agency has the manpower or means to track and dispel the amount of disinformation being circulated,” added NJOHSP Deputy Director Eric Tysarczyk. “With this portal, we’re now equipping the public with the tools needed to decipher the information for themselves.”
According to the Feds, there is not one platform or government agency that can dispel disinformation so who do you think officials want to use?
One of biggest perpetrators of disinformation in the business and it is not a federal agency named the CIA or the FBI.
