"I think people from both sides of the political spectrum will find Linda to be smart, fair and reasonable," Musk described his replacement in response to a congratulatory tweet by independent journalist Brian Krassenstein. But further digging about Yaccarino's background tells a different story.
Reports revealed that Yaccarino left her former position as head of marketing at NBC Universal to join Twitter. NBC Universal operates three mainstream media news outlets – NBC News, MSNBC and CNBC – that often parroted leftist and government-approved talking points.
Many conservatives have also pointed out her espousal of medical tyranny and connections with the globalist World Economic Forum (WEF). Her LinkedIn profile revealed her links to the WEF, as she has been the chairwoman of the globalist group's Task Force on Future of Work since 2019. Yaccarino also sits on the WEF's Media, Entertainment and Culture Industry Governors Steering Committee, and is also "highly engaged with the Value in Media initiative."
Mike Gunzelman of OutKick also expounded on the new Twitter CEO's questionable stances when it comes to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in a May 12 piece.
He cited how Yaccarino "partnered with the business community, the White House and government agencies to create a COVID-19 vaccination campaign featuring Pope Francis." The campaign made during her term as chairwoman of the Ad Council from 2021 until 2022 reached more than 200 million Americans. (Related: Pope Francis claims that getting vaccinated for covid is an "act of love.")
Gunzelman pointed out that aside from supporting vaccinations, Yaccarino also espoused draconian lockdowns and mask mandates. He cited a video where the new Twitter CEO called on viewers to "mask up or pack up." The OutKick writer also cited a re-tweet by Yaccarino calling on people to "stay at home," which also featured comedian Larry David of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" fame.
Finally, Gunzelman posted Yaccarino's interview with Musk where she suggests more content moderation. When Musk pulled back on the idea, she tried to convince him that content moderation would lead to more advertising revenue, regardless of its effect on free speech.
"It's all right there," Gunzelman wrote. "She wants to make Twitter more constrained, censored and moderated in the name of money and more control."
The South African-born technology bigwig announced Yaccarino as the new Twitter CEO on May 12, adding that she will focus mainly on business operations.
However, the former "Chief Twit" won't be leaving the company he acquired for $44 billion in October 2022. Musk will stay on board as executive chairman and chief technology officer, where he will be "overseeing product, software [and system operations]" and focusing on "product design and new technology."
Yaccarino's appointment appeared to be the fulfillment of an earlier promise by Musk to step down once he finds a replacement. Back in December 2022, he remarked his intent to vacate the CEO position as soon as he finds someone "foolish enough to take the job."
The founder of Tesla and SpaceX reportedly stuck to his promise to abide by the result of a Twitter poll he posted. The survey, which asked the question of whether he should resign as CEO, was answered by more than 17.5 million users. Of this number, 57.5 percent voted yes, while only 42.5 percent voted no.
"Even though [Musk's] intentions may be good, there's no doubt that [he] either got duped or he played many … for fools thinking that the elite don't look after the elite. There's only so many seats at the dinner table and, unfortunately, 'the average human' isn't invited. Hopefully that's not true, but many on Twitter are now thinking otherwise," Gunzelman wrote.
