It not the facts she has wrong, though some could be, it's the conclusion.

That's probably because she working backwards from a desired end-state (having access to everything, everywhere) and needs to find adequate[1] justification for doing so.

And in the minds of a lot of the populace[2] she's right - because they don't understand the issue either.

[1] In her view and that of her minders in the Civil Service who, having done PPE or Classics at Oxbridge, don't understand either.

[2] Most of whom see a computer as a magic box that sometimes breaks down but mostly shows stuff on the Interwebnetthingy.
