NBC News to drop ex-RNC chair McDaniel

Source: New York Post

“NBC News plans to drop former Republican National Committee boss Ronna McDaniel as a paid contributor after network stars including MSNBC primetime headliner Rachel Maddow and the co-hosts of ‘Morning Joe’ blasted the decision to bring the Trump-backing politico on board. The network has not made an announcement, but one is pending, according to Puck News. The Post has sought comment from NBC and McDaniel. McDaniel is reportedly looking to hire a lawyer, according to Puck News. Maddow, MSNBC’s most bankable name, said on her Monday show that hiring McDaniel was ‘inexplicable’ and demanded that executives ‘reverse their decision.'” [editor’s note: So apparently (unlike Fox’s “The Five,” which at least tries to show “the other side”), the very thought of having a token player from the other t-shirt color on their staff is just “horrific” to these clowns – SAT] [additional editor’s note: I was unaware that “the other side” of “wingnut” is “wingnut plus” – TLK] (03/26/24)
