Group blacklisting conservatives hiring top staffer to Influence Biden Administration
- June 21, 2023
A foreign “disinformation” tracker is looking to hire a policy director aimed at influencing the federal government and state governments. The Global Disinformation Index, a British organization that has received a $100,000 grant from the State Department and another roughly $860,000 from the government-funded nonprofit National Endowment for Democracy, has a job listing for a “U.S. Policy and External Relations Director.”
“There’s big money in the Censorship Industrial Complex, and a lot of that money comes from the federal government,” Michael Chamberlain, director of government ethics watchdog Protect the Public’s Trust, told the Washington Examiner. “As recent stories in the Washington Post and New York Times indicate, those who are alleged to have participated are reacting to their activities being exposed to the light of transparency, possibly to keep their gravy train rolling.
“We certainly hope that the public’s elected representatives and agencies that are supposed to act in the public’s interest would avoid granting funding or influence to projects, activities, or entities involved in infringing on the rights of American citizens,” he continued.
