MEDIA ADVISORY: Bishop Announces Subcommittee Hearing on DHS Mis-, Dis-, Malinformation Monitoring Program

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Homeland Security Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Accountability Chairman Dan Bishop (R-NC) announced a hearing next week to examine possible government overreach in a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) program that could be used to monitor mis-, dis-, and malinformation (MDM) posted online by American citizens.

“Time and time again, Biden and Mayorkas’ DHS has chosen censorship and suppression over free speech and put partisan games ahead of our national security. The dystopian ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ wasn’t an aberration—it was the tip of the iceberg of their censorship laundering schemes,” Chairman Bishop said. “This Subcommittee is demanding that DHS upholds its duty to secure America’s critical infrastructure and defend the homeland while safeguarding Americans’ constitutional rights. We won’t rest until we get full transparency and accountability.” 


WHAT: A Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations, and Accountability hearing entitled, “Censorship Laundering: How the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Enables the Silencing of Dissent.”

DATE: Thursday, May 11, 2023

TIME: 2:00 PM ET
