CNN's Brian Stelter finds Biden's Ministry of Truth really exciting

CNN’s chief propagandist Brian Stelter says he is ‘really excited’ at the prospect of Biden’s new ‘Ministry of Truth‘ censoring speech online.

During his show on Monday, Stelter spoke to National Democratic Institute director Moira Whelan who claimed that the new ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ is merely a bureaucratic body designed to help people with “law enforcement,” and “emergency services like FEMA” being able to supply “accurate information about human rights abuses.”
