WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a Dean Riffs exclusive, Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board Director Nina Jankowicz took a break from making Tik Tok videos to discuss the role of the newly minted free speech police and her plans to ferret out disinformation believed harmful to democracy.
Question: Is there any difference between “disinformation” and “misinformation,” and if so, what is it?
Answer: Certainly. Disinformation is an intentional act to spread false information, whereas misinformation is the distribution of false information, but not necessarily on purpose. All disinformation is misinformation, but not all misinformation is disinformation.
Question: Why not call the new board the Disinformation and Misinformation Governance Board or create a separate Misinformation Governance Board to police unintentional disinformation so as not to confuse it with the policing of intentional disinformation?
Answer: That would be somewhat redundant and confusing to voters, though it would help create more government jobs. I’ll take that under advisement.
Question: Were your tweets about Hunter Biden’s laptop “disinformation” or “misinformation” since those allegations have proven to be true?
Answer: Neither. The story about Hunter Biden’s laptop could be considered misinformation because I didn’t know the allegations were true when tweeting that it was Russian disinformation. In this case, however, it wasn’t misinformation because my intentions were pure, and the Republicans lie about everything.
Question: Then the stories about Hunter Biden’s laptop are true?
Answer: It’s not in my purview to assess whether the allegations are true or not. My responsibility is to monitor online reporting and stories that question what the Disinformation Governance Board says is true.
Question: There are countless stories online that aren’t factually true but are widely circulated and retweeted. For instance, your tweets castigating those questioning the Covid lockdowns and the efficacy of the vaccines could be considered censorship and bullying in many circles.
Answer: (Snort) That’s the kind of disinformation our agency will investigate! There are lots of rumors and fabrications about Covid, the vaccines and questioning the necessity of the lockdowns and masking that need to be shut down because they confuse people about trusting experts like the CDC and Lord Fau.., I mean, Dr. Fauci.
Question: Some say the purpose of the Disinformation Governance Board is to quash free speech and political opinions the administration disagrees with?
Answer: See, that in itself is untrue! Our role is to root out hate speech and political dissent that can harm democracy. You know, like what you hear at a Trump rally.
Question: And hate speech is defined as…?
Answer: Hate speech is speech that divides Americans and pits us against one another. United we stand, divided we yada, yada, yada. We’re better than that as a country, and we’re going to make sure of that by shaming the haters and censoring them in the public square.
Question: You have zero concern then about violating the First Amendment rights of free speech to all Americans?
Answer: Of course not! People can say whatever they want, whenever they want, wherever they want. The Disinformation Governance Board merely serves as a filter not unlike a water filtration system that removes impurities and harmful substances that can infect the whole organism. Only Donald Trump and those supporting dirty water oppose our mission.
Question: We have to ask. What’s with the Mary Poppins act?
Answer: I need to wrap up this interview now to launch a disinformation investigation of Dean Riffs, but let me close with this:
Information laundering is really quite ferocious, it’s when a huckster takes some lies and makes them sound precocious, disinformation’s origins are slightly less atrocious, the Disinformation Governanace Board is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Thanks for reading Dean Riffs. Welcome to all those who love American liberty, free enterprise, and who believe God has blessed our country.
