The federal government’s efforts to censor “misinformation” and “disinformation” online – which appears to be spearheaded by the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency – is being aided and abetted by a host of private-sector companies and left-wing non-profits.

Below is a list of the individuals and their corporate affiliations who’ve been placed on the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)’s Cybersecurity Advisory Committee. Announced on December 1st, 2021, the cohort “will advise and provide recommendations to the Director on policies, programs, planning, and training to enhance the nation’s cyber defense.”

One of its primary focus areas is “combating misinformation and disinformation,” which the CISA press release admits is reliant on “transforming public-private partnership into true operational collaboration.”

CISA has come under recent scrutiny for its efforts, revealed via internal documents, to censor information about “the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic and the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines, racial justice, U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the nature of U.S. support to Ukraine” on various social media platforms. The agency also played a critical role in the “removal of President Trump,” per internal communications released from Twitter.
