A former Biden administration official who oversaw a federal initiative against alleged disinformation filed a civil lawsuit against Fox News on Wednesday, alleging that the news outlet defamed her and damaged her career.

Nina Jankowicz, former head of the now-disbanded Disinformation Governance Board, alleged in a complaint filed Wednesday that Fox News, via figures like host Laura Ingram and former host Tucker Carlson, waged “a malicious campaign of destruction” against her that allegedly damaged her career and well-being.

“By particular, Fox described Jankowicz as moronic, an embarrassment to her parents and employers, and a ‘self-obsessed social media neophyte,’” reads the complaint, filed in the Delaware Superior Court on May 10.

Jankowicz’s lawyers allege that the purpose of these descriptions was “neither news nor political commentary,” but was intended to “denigrate Jankowicz’s character and professional reputation, particularly since they continued long after Jankowicz’s resignation from government.”

The complaint cited former host Tucker Carlson’s comments regarding Jankowicz’s appearance in a Tik Tok video as an example.

“They hired some Mary Poppins lookalike Nina Jankowicz to silence anyone who criticized the Biden administration,” Carlson said, as cited by the complaint. “Better wake up and get involved, or your future will consist of asking permission to exercise your own most basic rights from people like that.”

Because she was a public official, her lawsuit needs to clear a higher legal bar than normal defamation cases: namely, proving “actual malice,” or that the alleged perpetrator has made statements with the “knowledge that it was false or with reckless disregard of whether it was false or not.”

For the falsehood element, Jankowicz’s lawyers say in the complaint that Fox News hosts promulgated alleged lies in “three critical ways,” including: that Jankowicz intended to censor American’s speech, that she was fired from her post, and that she wanted to give verified Twitter users the power to edit others’ tweets.

The complaint writes that “Jankowicz has never advocated against individuals sharing their views and has publicly condemned censorship as ineffective against disinformation” and that Fox News hosts allegedly knew this position but continued to portray her as a proponent of censorship.

“The statements were made with actual knowledge of their falsity or with reckless disregard of the same,” the complaint reads.

Scary Poppins, the queen of disinformation, big mad. Why how dare people call her out on her attempts to subvert freedom of speech? This woman is almost as disgusting as Hitlery and Nanzi.

THIS could get very interesting. Joementia and fiends are going to likely have a "swinging" time as more people become aware.

"“Believe nothing merely because you have been told it. Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings - that doctrine believe and cling to, and take it as your guide.” ~ Gautama Siddhartha — The Buddha
