NBC News Angers Viewers with McDaniel Hire, Chuck Todd Eviscerates Network — on the Show! (Watch)


What a morning for NBC News! They finally catalyzed their audience and united them — against the network. And then Chuck Todd showed backbone — on “Meet the Press” right after former RNC chairman Ronna McDaniel appeared as a new hire.

Fans of NBC and MSNBC are furious with NBC News for hiring McDaniel, a former Trump mouthpiece, to join the network. Social media is ablaze with anger and criticism. Viewers say they will tune out until she is gone. “Meet the Press” host Kristen Welker’s lame interview with McDaniel didn’t help.

McDaniel said on the show that the 2020 election was full of “problems.” She’s still spouting pro-Trump, anti American crap, defending January 6th.

So Todd, in the following segment, spoke up. He was incensed. Many people wondered why he never showed such emotion when he was the anchor of the show!

MSNBC has already said McDaniel will not be allowed on their shows. But NBC faces a crisis with people like Lester Holt and the Today show. One announced McDaniel appearance could do irreparable damage.
