Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Harold Furchtgott-Roth and expert panelists Robert McDowell, Nadine Strossen, Robert Corn-Revere, and Michael W. McConnell for a discussion on the controversy surrounding the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) recently announced Disinformation Governance Board.

Last month, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced the creation of the Disinformation Governance Board, in a move that attracted a great deal of criticism. Not much is known about this board and whether its mandate differs from that of other federal agencies, and while federal monitoring of speech isn’t a new phenomenon, the potential for broad government surveillance of large numbers of individuals is profoundly troubling. Please join our expert panel for a discussion on the potential activities of this new body and the extent to which this could impinge on core constitutional rights.
