Hannity Slams Ambiguity of New ‘Disinfo’ Task Force: It’s ‘Anybody’s Guess’

Fox News host Sean Hannity slammed the White House’s new task force to address online abuse and “disinformation,” noting that even the White House doesn’t seem to know what the board will do.

Hannity bashed the Biden White House’s new online “disinformation” task force on his Fox News show Thursday. “The often giggly Vice President Kamala Harris … wants to let us know she really likes the internet,” Hannity began, referring to Harris’s unveiling of the task force. 

Hannity played a clip of Harris rambling about the internet, “Well, the internet is an essential part of life in the Twenty-First Century,” she blathered. “Can’t get around it. Can’t get around without it.” 

Harris unveiled the Biden administration’s newest online control effort, an online policy task force, and the Counsel to the Vice President Josh Hsu is one of the more than 15 government officials named as a member on the task force.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) paused the DGB but did not disband it, and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas will sit on the task force.

“Despite not yet completing any of her other jobs, you know, securing the southern border, the White House is now giving the vice president more responsibilities,” Hannity said. “Now you might be wondering, what exactly that task force will do. Well, at this point it seems to be anybody’s guess. Even the White House press secretary doesn’t appear to know.”

The clip Hannity played showed White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre not answering what the task force will do, and how it is different from the Disinformation Governance Board (DGB). “So I would need to talk to [Harris’s] team,” Jean-Pierre said. 

Hannity chuckled, “In other words, ‘I don’t know a thing about it, either.’”

The new White House task force will go after so-called disinformation — including alleged “gendered disinformation” online, among other issues, according to a White House memo released Thursday. The task force will expand governmental “data collection” and target supposed “technology-facilitated gender-based violence.”

The fact that the task force will focus on “disinformation” and several topics near and dear to leftists, including LGBTQ+ ideology, indicates the government bureaucracy may be a reformation of the Orwellian DGB. 

Individuals connected to the DGB proved to be anything but objective based on their past remarks. 

MRC Free Speech America previously uncovered that DGB co-chair Jennifer Daskal and DGB advisor Michael Chertoff had ties to leftist billionaires George Soros and Bill Gates. MRC Free Speech America also uncovered that DGB advisors and a DGB member shared false information in the past.
