Trouble at t'ministry of truth

The White House is standing by Nina Jankowicz, the embattled disinformation expert named to head the Department of Homeland Security’s now-paused “Disinformation Governance Board,” despite her resignation amid the board’s troubled roll-out.
Ms. Jankowicz, 33, handed in her resignation Wednesday, citing “mischaracterizations” of the work she set out to do at DHS.
Soon after her departure, the White House weighed in with a defense of the board’s work and a defense of Ms. Jancowicz’s expertise and background.
“She has strong credentials and a history of calling out misinformation from both the left and the right,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said.
Ms. Jean-Pierre also defended the board and its intended role of ensuring that national security officials are updated on how misinformation is affecting the threat environment.
...no amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party...So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.
