Ronna McDaniel's Fate At NBC News Decided Today

I’m expecting they’ll pull the plug on the failed experiment, but who knows for certan. There are also speculations that Senior Vice President, Politics at NBC Carrie Budoff Brown, the genius who hired Ronna McDaniel, will suffer consequences for what many view as a disastrous hire. We shall soon see, hopefully.

Former Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel has only appeared once on NBC News programming in her new capacity as a political news contributor, and already, senior executives are gathering to conduct a review.

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. In recent days, prominent anchors ranging from Chuck Todd to Rachel Maddow have spoken out against the hire on NBC News’ “Meet The Press” as well as on MSNBC, charging NBC News executives with giving a platform to McDaniel despite her efforts to help former President Donald Trump dismiss the integrity of the 2020 presidential election.

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.

Just a few days ago the memo from Carrie Budoff Brown announced her hiring.

In a memo announcing McDaniel’s hiring, Carrie Budoff Brown, who leads NBC’s elections reporting, wrote that “it couldn’t be a more important moment to have a voice like Ronna’s on the team,” and referenced McDaniel’s leadership of the GOP “through some of the most turbulent and challenging moments in political history.”

Yes, because we always need the viewpoint of one of the arsonists behind the fire.

And while we don’t know for sure it was even her decision, we do know who will get the blame.
