Lots of videos of disinformation czar Nina Jankowicz (many feature singing)

As Jazz pointed out yesterday, the Biden administration just appointed Nina Jankowicz as executive director of the Disinformation Governance Board at DHS aka the disinformation czar. Jankowicz quickly came under fire for, among others things, pushing claims that the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation. But there are also a lot of old videos turning up including several in which Jankowicz is singing. Here’s one that made it on Tucker Carlson’s show last night.

The Mary Poppins of disinformation? Is that something we need? But there are other videos online in which Jankowicz sounds a lot more serious about the issue. Here’s some testimony she gave (remotely) to the House Armed Services Committee in 2021:

If you want to see the rest, click here for part 2 and part 3. In addition to her interest in disinformation, Jankowicz has also written a book about the abuse of women on social media. She did a slightly cringey Tik Tok video on that topic as well.

BTW, Jankowicz has been through this sort of thing before and she said she doesn’t care. She loves musical theater and so she’s going to sing and do characters whether people like it or not.

Even when she’s being serious, it feels a bit like there’s a musical theater performance just below the surface trying to break out. I’m not even sure she’s doing it on purpose it just seems to be who she is.

Lots of musical theater pics:

Even in stills she posts you can hear the music trying to break through. The hills are alive…

Everyone needs a hobby.

Going back a little further, a friend of mine noticed that Jankowicz was part of a group called StopFake which was designed to point out Russian disinformation about Ukraine.

The non­governmental organization Media Reforms Center is an educational platform, founded by Mohyla School of Journalism at National University of ‘Kyiv­Mohyla Academy’, which aims to implement high standards of journalism education in Ukraine, raise the level of media literacy, inform about the danger of propaganda and dissemination of fake information in the media. Since it was launched, MRC has been working on implementing western standards of journalism in Ukraine and raising the level of media literacy for different audiences, from students to journalists to members of public who want to consume media content in a critical and responsible way…

The flagship project of our organization “StopFake” is currently well known to media professionals all over the world. Not only does it identify cases of fake information about events in Ukraine, but also actually initiated an international discussion on how to resist this shameful phenomenon.

StopFake videos appear to have been published by the group once a week since 2014 and Jankowicz seems to have hosted three of them in 2016 and 2017. Here’s one example:

This clip from 2015 is making the rounds on Twitter. She’s singing of couse.

And if you go way, way back there are more clips of Jankowicz singing in a band setting in various places. One thing you can say is that she’s been pretty consistent.

I’m not sure what all of this adds up to. She’s obviously a lefty which is how she got this disinformation czar job in the Biden administration. She does seem to know her business when it comes to Russian disinformation especially. The musical theater gloss on this will no doubt be charming and relatable to some people but I think it will also wear thin pretty quickly with a lot of others. I don’t hate musical theater but I don’t really want the disinformation czar breaking into song to lecture us or even looking like she’d like to do so. But as I said, your mileage may vary.
