YouTube’s Susan Wojcicki will step down from her role as YouTube’s CEO.
Wojcicki joined Google in 2008 and was one of the first employees at the company. She will be replaced by Neal Mohan. According to Reuters, “Mohan, a Stanford graduate, joined Google in 2008 and is the chief product officer at YouTube where he has been focusing on building YouTube Shorts and Music.”
Wojcicki, 54, says she will refocus her life on “family, health, and personal projects.” She became CEO of YouTube in 2014.
Wojcicki became known to some after she appeared on then-CNN host Brian Stelter’s show Reliable Sources, where she said that she would ensure that censorship was taking place on her platform.
Wojcicki said that anything that goes against the World Health Organization’s stance on Covid would be deemed a violation of YouTube policy.
YouTube under Wojcicki would smother voices that dared question official narratives. Comedian Russell Brand had a video where he question the narrative around Covid-19 removed.
“Earlier this month we did a video about the changing narratives around Covid, the pandemic, and Covid treatments in which we cited information on official government websites, which we misinterpreted,” said Brand, noting that “I’ll have to be careful talking about it now, I don’t want to make the same mistake that’s had one of your videos pulled down and an official warning issued.”
YouTube also had meetings with the Biden administration, along with other Big Tech giants, to censor inforamtion around Covid-19.
As reported by The Post Millennial’s Libby Emmons and Human Events’s Jack Posobiec: Communications across 11 federal agencies reveal that the federal government, under the Biden administration, “has exerted tremendous pressure on social-media companies—pressure to which companies have repeatedly bowed,” the New Civil Liberties Alliance details in a new release. The social media companies that were part of this Partner Support Portal include Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and LinkedIn.
The CDC invited “all tech platforms” into their meeting to discuss how to suppress free speech about Covid online. Those agencies involved include the White House, HHS, DHS, CISA, the CDC, NIAID, the Office of the Surgeon General, the Census Bureau, the FDA, the FBI, the State Department, the Treasury Department, and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.
