One of these executives seems just like the other. While YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has stepped down, her successor is just as anti-free speech.
While the resignation of anti-free speech YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki seemed a cause for rejoicing, MRC Free Speech America also warned that her replacement Neal Mohanhas previously voiced support for censorship. Wojcicki said Mohan used to head YouTube’s Trust and Safety team, which is responsible for making censorship policies and enforcing them, according to Reclaim the Net.
Mohan “would often promote and defend controversial YouTube policies” during Wojcicki’s tenure as CEO, Reclaim the Net reported. For instance, Mohan announcedYouTube’s decision in December 2019 to delete Steven Crowder videos retroactively because they apparently violated the platform’s then-new harassment policy, despite Crowder’s videos predating the policy. More recently, in 2022, Mohan explained YouTube’s “preemptive” censorship of supposed “misinformation.”
“The hitman has now become the mob boss,” said Vice President of MRC Free Speech America and MRC Business Dan Schneider. “It’s the social media version of mobster John Gotti elevating Sammy the Bull Gravano to underboss. But in the end, justice was served on the mob, and Big Tech is heading for a similar reckoning.”
