It has come to light that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is involved with Big Tech censorship.A woman by the name of Kate Starbird, who chaired the now-dissolved advisory committee of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), advised social media companies about how to craft their "moderation" policies.
Last June in a closed-door meeting that was held in the leadup to the House Judiciary Committee probe into the federal government's weaponized censorship operation, Starbird admitted to being involved in social media censorship.
Starbird also headed up the University of Washington's (UW) Center for an Informed Public, which just so happens to "specialize" in handling "disinformation and misinformation."
The Election Integrity Project also had Starbird in its ranks, this being the group that promoted censorship in favor of Joe Biden ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
UW, by the way, received a $2.25 million award to fight "disinformation" from the National Science Foundation, another taxpayer-funded government agency.

When government employees silence free speech

Documents obtained by the Washington Examiner show that Starbird was heavily involved in Big Tech censorship, her name never having been previously spoken of much on the censorship front.
In speaking before Congress, Starbird was careful with her words, though still revealed quite a bit about the role she played in advising social media platforms to do the government's bidding.
When asked specifically if she had ever "directly" advised any social media platforms, Starbird admitted that she "sometimes had conversations" with them about censorship matters.
"I don't draft (moderation policies), but I've had conversations with representatives of several platforms, actually," Starbird said.
Not only did Starbird have these conversations, but she admitted to being "happy" with their outcome in terms of the moderation tactics that social media platforms ended up employing based on her guidance.
"Those are the kinds of things that I'm happy to have a conversation with a platform about: Like, how you might want to go about labeling, which accounts you might want to not bother labeling," Starbird is quoted as saying to Congress.
"Maybe you really only want to label – you know, I might advise, like – you know, you focus labels on the people that, you know, are verified accounts or have large audiences, those kinds of things."
Starbird's first contact with Big Tech occurred all the way back in 2017 around the time Donald Trump became president. This contact, reports indicate, was not yet tied to any government body as was the case later in Starbird's career.
"I did not consult with platforms around content moderation of specific pieces of content or accounts," she revealed. "Nor did I communicate with platforms as part of my role at the EIP or as a member of the CISA advisory committee."
The GOP-led panel that later compiled a report on the matter mentioned Starbird 41 different times, as well as the name Vijaya Gadde, an ex-executive at Twitter, now known as X.
Starbird was behind the digital suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. The former professional women's basketball player also appeared on CBS's "60 Minutes" program recently where it was conveniently not disclosed that Starbird used to be on the now-defunct CISA advisory panel.
Before Starbird started working for the government, some social media platforms that had government employees working behind the scenes reached out to her "seeking insights based on my academic research to help them better understand how rumors and disinformation spread online," she admitted.
