Elon Musk, the world’s richest man and likely soon-to-be owner of Twitter, weighed on President Joe Biden’s formation of a “disinformation governance board” whose mission it is to fight online disinformation.
“Discomforting,” Musk wrote on Twitter about the board in reply to conservative commentator Steven Crowder comparing the board to Nazi Germany.
The board was made public by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who told Congress about its creation – just days after Musk reached a deal to take Twitter private at a cost of $54.20 a share.
Republicans and conservatives have roundly criticized the board, with Senator Josh Hawley calling it a “disgrace,” and numerous conservatives noting that Nina Jankowicz, who is heading the board, had previously dismissed a legitimate story – the Hunter Biden laptop scandal – as disinformation, calling it a “Trump campaign product.”

Most of the misinformation is coming about the safety and effectiveness of a certain product being pushed 24/7.
The Soviets famously said that they would introduce their Communism into this country only in increments, not all at once, so that before you know it, this country is just like them.
This marks yet another major milestone in switching to Soviet-style governance, and is also yet one more thing that would never have happened under President Trump.
