McDaniel vs. NBC News

When I heard NBC News was hiring recently dismissed RNC chair Ronna McDaniel my first thought was, but of course they are! She was a mediocre RNC chair with little rhetorical flair or depth, and NBC News was hiring her because she’d help the cause of making Republicans look bad. (See: Michael Steele, the other former RNC chair that MSNBC hired and who now spouts reliably anti-conservative views on command.) Social scientists call this “pattern recognition.” NBC News isn’t about to hire, say, Sen. John Kennedy to appear on their network.

So the hysteria from the broadcast royalty at NBC News over McDaniel’s hiring reveals how fully the media has taken sides against Trump, and how cloistered and insecure they are that even the hint of someone who might defend Trump (albeit poorly in all likelihood) was intolerable. So she has to go. It’s moves like that that give cancel culture a bad name.

The claim is that McDaniel told lies. Yet ABC News had no problem hiring George Stephanopoulos, who lied repeatedly for Bill Clinton. Cue the slogan about liberal double standards here.
