WASHINGTON, D.C. - Harvard University dismantled its prestigious team of online disinformation experts after a foundation run by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan donated $500 million to the university, a whistleblower disclosure filed by Whistleblower Aid reveals. In her whistleblower declaration, Donovan lays out in detail how she and her research team at Harvard’s Kennedy School came under sudden scrutiny from the school’s dean, Douglas Elmendorf, and other Kennedy School leaders, after they started working on Haugen’s Facebook Files - a cache Donovan describes as “The most important documents in the history of the internet.” Suddenly her work became a threat to some of HKS’s most treasured donor relationships - just as Harvard was finalizing the largest donation the school had ever received, $500 million from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative in December 2021.
