NBC Faces Major Backlash Over Hiring Ronna McDaniel; Network Discusses Her Future

NBC has faced major backlash for their reckless, irresponsible, and just moronic decision to hire the former head of the Republican National Committee, infamous serial liar, election denier, and part of the ‘fake elector’ scheme, Ronna ROMNEY McDaniel. Pretty much all of MSNBC’s hosts and contributors had something to say about it on their shows. Now, the Wall Street Journal, Variety, and the shithole, New York Post have reported that “top executives from NBC News were expected to meet Tuesday to hash out the growing controversy around her recent hire, according to two people familiar with the matter, in a bid to stop a growing insurrection by the NBCUniversal unit’s editorial staff.”

The Backlash:

***Posted the long version but well worth the watch. You can view Rachel’s rant on Ronna beginning around the 6:20 mark.

(Jen) Psaki said she decided to speak up because, as a former press secretary to President Joe Biden, her name has been used by McDaniel supporters to point out that a former Democratic political appointee was hired by MSNBC without internal objection.

She said that for a television personality, that kind of experience in government “only matters and only has value to viewers if it is paired with honesty and good faith.”

Ronna Then, Ronna Now:

In her NBC appearance, the veil covering the kayfabe of post-2020 election denialism fell, exposing what one of the most prominent party officials thought in private versus what she said in public.

“Sometimes there is a price to be paid for politically expedient bullshit,” said Jason Roe, the Michigan-based GOP strategist whose parents worked for George Romney and who butted heads with McDaniel when he was the state GOP executive director. “It is the unwillingness, the lack of courage to say these things before that matters most, because these things have taken on a life of their own because people who know better didn’t say so, and they gain legitimacy.”

Or as McDaniel herself put it in her NBC interview: “When you’re the RNC chair, you — you kind of take one for the whole team, right? Now I get to be a little bit more myself.”

There are some people who think NBC News may have to renege on its contributor deal with McDaniel, because the growing internal outcry about her hire means many producers and anchors will be loath to book her on their programs. Others think NBC News could stand by its decision.

NBC News spokespersons did not immediately respond to queries seeking comment.
