[See NewsBusters for more.] Here at NewsBusters, we’re keeping a continuing, day-by-day watch of the network attempts to hide every new detail of the Hunter Biden controversies. It’s time for another monitoring alert: “Disinformation Watch.” Last Wednesday, it was revealed that the Joe Biden administration has created a “disinformation” board that will be run by a partisan Democrat. All of this as we ramp up to the midterm elections. Since last Wednesday, all three network morning and evening newscasts have ignored what some are calling an Orwellian attempt at muzzling free speech. 

The only exception same on NBC’s Sunday chat show Meet the Press. For one minute and 23 seconds, host Chuck Todd ever-so-gently discussed it with Department of Homeland Security head Alejandro Mayorkas. He kindly tossed Mayorkas this softball: “I want to ask you about another concept. There is some concern about misinformation and disinformation at the department that you have in DHS. There’s some people that look at it and it looks like policing of speech. Can you explain what this program is about?”
