Meanwhile, X CEO Linda Yaccarino responded to the controversy:

Linda Yaccarino, X’s chief executive hired by Musk for her deep connections to the advertising world, was bombarded by calls from friends and associates last weekend during her daughter’s wedding, according to several people familiar with the matter. They urged her to quit to protect her reputation.

On Thursday evening, Yaccarino instead sent a company-wide email cheering on X’s stance on fighting “censorship” and stating that Musk had shared an “unmatched and completely unvarnished perspective” and vision for the future. -FT

"Our principles do not have a price tag, nor will they be compromised — ever," wrote Yaccarino. "And no matter how hard they try, we will not be distracted by sideline critics who don’t understand our mission."

X's switch in advertising strategy is necessary to mitigate corporate media and activist groups' 'blackmail" of ad spending for content that they do not like.

Wow, didn't see that coming. Perhaps Elon Musk made a better decision in hiring the CEO of X that many conservatives gave him credit for!

Is this the same Sundance that bragged about all the bad actors that went after Trump were going to prison or some such thing? He was damn sure of it, with all his intel. Roll Eyes

"every person who dies"?? The latest stats indicate that, globally, approximately 150,000 people die each day.

It's all on you, Elon. Roll Eyes

Talk about a break from reality. Wow. Eek

I wonder if they ever have the mental strength to apply the same level of blame to people like the trans shooter who obviously was insane? Maybe it’s a similar level of mental illness that is incapable of self reflection and critical thinking?

The NRA has become a joke. Which is embarrassing to state as a life member.

In addition to at least a Premium X membership I suggest starting a monthly donation to the following organizations that are AGRESSIVELY fighting (and winning) for our Second Amendment rights.

Second Amendment Foundation
Gun Owners of America
Gun Owners Foundation
Firearms Policy Coalition

California Specific groups:
California Rifle and Pistol Association
Gun Owners of California

What does the NRA have to do with this discussion?

Let's take it easy on the troll stuff, huh? Lots of members read the board regularly but rarely, if ever, post.

Let's be polite until there is reason to not be polite. I don't see anything like that yet.

I think the poster is following the logic of supporting those that fight for the 1st amendment to supporting those that fight for the 2nd.

And the NRA has been drifting to the "DINO" Defender's In Name Only territory for years.
