With a silence that can only suggest approval, the nation’s TV news networks have ignored the Biden administration’s creation of a so-called “Ministry of Truth” and the appointment of a controversial czar known for oddball tweets and the promotion of the Russia hoax.

In a new report from the Media Research Center, morning and evening network news shows have not mentioned the Disinformation Governance Board created by the Department of Homeland Security, despite widespread criticism by Republicans.

“It’s now been 12 days since the Department of Homeland Security announced what amounts to an Orwellian attempt at muzzling free speech, a disinformation board that will ramp up in the midst of an important midterm election year,” said the report on MRC’s NewsBusters.

“Since April 27, the morning and evening newscasts have stayed silent on the DHS board. They have also been quiet on the background of Nina Jankowicz, the partisan, hard-left Democrat who is to run it,” added the report from Scott Whitlock, the research director at NewsBusters.

In fact, just the opposite has happened on liberal cable sites such as CNN, which has mocked conservative media concerns about the "Truth Ministry."

The apparent effort to muzzle news about the new agency and its leader has come despite a push by 175 Republicans to get more information about the transparency agency and its head.

The Washington Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy reported today that among other controversial moves and statements, Jankowicz pushed the Russia hoax story to discredit former President Donald Trump.

“Nina Jankowicz has cited Christopher Steele as a disinformation expert, made misleading claims about the funding of his dossier, cast doubt on the Hunter Biden laptop story, downplayed Iranian election meddling, and critiqued the Wuhan, China, lab leak hypothesis,” Dunleavy reported.

But, said Whitlock, “Coverage? ZERO on the network morning and evening newscasts.”

He added, “You would think that journalists, who make their living off of free speech would be alarmed over a disinformation board run by a partisan with a very loose grasp on facts. But they don’t seem very bothered.”
