WEF'er Taskforce Chair Is Twitter's New CEO, Jeopardizing Free Speech Once Again

It's official - moments ago NBC confirmed that its head of advertising is leaving the company...

NBC Universal today announced that Linda Yaccarino is leaving the company, effective immediately. Mark Marshall, currently President, Advertising Sales and Client Partnerships, will become interim Chairman of NBCUniversal's Advertising and Partnerships group, reporting to Mark Lazarus, Chairman, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming.

Twitter's modern days of encouraging free speech and independent thought may be numbered.

In some ways, Musk's pick of Yaccarino is not a surprise: as Chair of the Advertising Council's Board of Directors and arguably NBCU's top advertising exec, she is meant to fill a critical void at the new Twitter: that of advertising. After all, despite having massive traffic, Musk's social network - which as a reminder cost him $44 billion - has been hemorhaging ad revenue as woke brands have abandoned the website.

Of the top 100 advertisers on Twitter before Mr. Musk bought the company, 37 spent nothing on Twitter advertising during the first quarter of this year, according to market-intelligence firm Sensor Tower, while an additional 24 brands reduced their average monthly Twitter ad spending by 80% or more.

On the other hand, the hiring of Yaccarino to head the social network which in recent months has become the bane of liberals and progressives through its encouragement of free speech and independent thought, both of which are despised and suppressed by the radical left, is a problem.

For one, according to her LInkedIn profile, Yaccarino is the "Chairman of the WEF's Taskforce on Future of Work and sits on the WEF's Media, Entertainment and Culture Industry Governors Steering Committee. She is also highly engaged with the Value in Media initiative."

And then there's this: in 2021-2022, as Ad Council Chair, "Yaccarino partnered with the business community, the White House, and government agencies to create a COVID-19 vaccination campaign, featuring Pope Francis and reaching over 200 million Americans."
