Ronna McDaniel Dropped After NBC News Staff Revolt

( – Former Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel was ousted from her new gig at NBC just four days after she was hired as a contributor. NBCUniversal News Group Chairman Cesar Conde issued a memo to company employees, seemingly waving the white flag after the company received on-air backlash from nearly every news host on MSNBC. Conde wrote that he changed his mind after hearing concerns from staff, adding that he wanted to “personally apologize” for the decision.

Conde claimed that NBC hired McDaniel because of NBC’s commitment to offer viewpoints from a diverse group of commentators, although most of MSNBC’s hosts are undoubtedly far left. Meet the Press host Chuck Todd was the first of many to blast NBC for the decision, claiming that Ronna still needed to deal with her credibility after supporting former President Trump’s effort to expose voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

Rachel Maddow, who rules the roost at MSNBC, vowed that McDaniel would not make any appearances on the network. She compared her hiring to a district attorney employing a known mobster. Other far-left MSNBC hosts, including former Biden White House press secretary Jen Psaki, threw on-air fits in protest of McDaniel working as a contributor.

An anonymous source close to McDaniel told Fox News that she first learned of her termination in the media and had not been contacted by NBC.

Meanwhile, conservatives were joyful over McDaniel’s decision to step down as chairwoman of the RNC. Republican voters have long-withheld funding from the organization because of its lack of support for uncovering voter fraud after the 2020 election and reports of misuse of donations. The RNC reported record fundraising amounts since the election of Michael Whatley as chair and Lara Trump as co-chair. Trump commented on McDaniel’s ouster from NBC in a Truth Social post, writing that he would have told her to “change her name back to Romney” if he had realized she was not going to receive a warm welcome at NBC.
