Now, just three weeks after its announcement, the Disinformation Governance Board is being “paused,” according to multiple employees at DHS, capping a back-and-forth week of decisions that changed during the course of reporting of this story. On Monday, DHS decided to shut down the board, according to multiple people with knowledge of the situation. By Tuesday morning, Jankowicz had drafted a resignation letter in response to the board’s dissolution. -WaPo

According to the Washington Post, the 33-year-old Jankowicz "was thrust into the spotlight by the very forces she dedicated her career to combating," and has been "subject to an unrelenting barrage of harassment and abuse."
Yes, because the head of a brand new Orwellian department shouldn't be questioned.
On Tuesday night, DHS officials had an urgent call with Jankowicz where they gave her the choice to stay the course, even if the work was put on hold.
According to the report, "working groups within DHS focusing on 'mis-, dis- and mal-information have been suspended."
WaPo points to early tweets by journalist Jack Posobiec for launching what became an avalanche of attacks on the "Ministry of Truth."

According to a DHS spokesperson, "The Board’s purpose has been grossly mischaracterized; it will not police speech," adding "Quite the opposite, its focus is to ensure that freedom of speech is protected."
Let us guess, war is also peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength.
