AAF reveals Center for Countering Digital Hate’s ties to British government

WASHINGTONEXAMINER: A self-described “disinformation” tracker that Republicans accuse of helping to censor conservative voices online has shared ties with the British government, according to records.

As part of his sprawling “censorship” investigation, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) in August subpoenaed the Center for Countering Digital Hate, a United States charity with a London-based arm the White House has cited as an expert on thwarting purported disinformation. But the U.K. entity has other affiliations raising eyebrows among watchdog groups: Its board of directors has included British politicians, officials, and their staffers.“The CCDH has been one of the government’s go-to organizations to justify censoring conservative content,” Tom Jones, president of the American Accountability Foundation, told the Washington Examiner. “Americans should be very concerned that the Biden administration has given an entity affiliated with a foreign government such sway over American civil liberties.”
