Nina Jankowicz, executive director of the Department of Homeland Security’s newly launched a "Disinformation Governance Board," nicknamed by many the "Ministry of Truth," called for tech platforms to "malign creativity" and identify "harmful" posts, including memes.

In a Twitter post dated January 1, 2021, Jankowicz wrote, "The biggest challenge in identifying this content both for our team and for platforms is what we’ve dubbed 'malign creativity' -- the coded language, memes, and context-based content which allow harmful posts to avoid detection."

The post was part of a longer thread announcing the release of Malign Creativity: How Gender, Sex, and Lies are Weaponized Against Women Online, which was co-authored by Jankowicz along with; Jillian Hunchak, Alexandra Pavliuc, Celia Davies, Shannon Pierson and Zoë Kaufmann.

Ironically, Jankowicz herself has been revealed to have spread disinformation on a number of topics. Screenshots of old tweets revealed that Jankowicz dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop as Russian misinformation, slammed free speech, and bashed Twitter’s decision to stop taking action against 2020 election posts.

On numerous occasions she discredited the Hunter Biden laptop story, as a "fairy tale" and disinformation.

Critics have raised concerns about Jankowicz's visible political biases and how it could affect her performance in her new position.

Jankowicz claimed in 2020 that the process of verifying what's "real" or "fake" online should not be the domain of the executive branch of the government.

Over the weekend, Jankowicz removed her TikTok account from public viewing. Some speculate her TikTok was made private to avoid more videos being discovered and made public which provided evidence of her bias.
