According to a report from Fox News, former disinformation czar Nina Jankowicz has taken a new position and registered as a foreign agent working for the “Centre for Information Resilience” which is based in the United Kingdom.
From Fox News:
According to its website, CIR is an “independent, non-profit social enterprise dedicated to countering disinformation, exposing human rights abuses, and combating online behavior harmful to women and minorities.”
Founded by U.K. citizen Adam Rutland and dual U.K.-U.S. national Ross Burley, the organization says it conducts research, digital investigations, strategic communications, building the capacity of local partners, and collaborating with media to “amplify the impact” of its work.
According to registration documents, CIR is financed “in part by grants from the U.K. government, including the Foreign Commonwealth, and Development Office.”
Among Jankowicz’s responsibilities, the documents say, will be supervising research, executing business strategy, overseeing the establishment of CIR’s research, communicating with the media, and briefing individuals and officials about the organization’s research.
Jankowicz briefly served as the director of the Disinformation Governance Board before the whole department was shelved due to outrage over privacy concerns.
Jankowicz also went viral for videos in which she would sing songs about disinformation.
