In "What Happened to Nina Jankowicz when Fox News Came for Her" (On Point, May 15, 2023), former head of the Department of Homeland Security's now-defunct disinformation board Nina Jankowicz sits down in a radio interview to speak about her recently-filed lawsuit against Fox News and Fox Corporation.
During an eight-month period starting in the Spring of 2022, Jankowicz was verbally attacked by various Fox News pundits, such as Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, over 300 times, accusing her of attempting to censor anyone opposed to the Biden administration. This ongoing false sensationalist reporting led to harassment and numerous death threats against her and her loved ones.
"Last year, when I was appointed to lead a body within the Department of Homeland Security to counter disinformation, disinformation and hate speech came for ... me and my family," Jankowicz says. "And for the past year, we've been dealing with threats, harassment and worse."
The lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of the State of Delaware by Pollock Cohen LLP, Upper Seven Law, and Farnan LLP.
At Pollock Cohen, counsel Max Rodriguez is representing Nina Jankowicz.
