‘Talent’ Throws Tantrum, Forces NBC To Fire Ronna McDaniel

How DARE a conservative be invited into a Democrat safe space like NBC!

In case there was any doubt as to just how deeply partisan the so-called ‘mainstream’ news has become… the last week at NBC put all their cards on the table.

It started when Ronna McDaniel did what every GOP or DNC chair does once a nominee is declared — she stepped aside in favor of the team the party leader wanted running the show.

Whatever we may think about how effective or not she was in running the organization during her term in office, this kind of changing of the guard is pretty routine.

With another Presidential cycle heating up, she was offered a gig as a paid contributor at a news network. She took it.

As routine as the switching out of party chair might be, politicians finding a gig as paid commentators on news networks is even more so.

Donna Brazile went from DNC chair to CNN. Jen Psaki went directly from being Biden’s Press Secretary (a glorified spin doctor) to having her own ‘news’ show. George Snuffulupagus (or whatever) went from working damage control on the Clinton ‘bimbo eruptions’ to being a ‘respected’ news anchor. We could go on down the list, but you get the point.

Head of departments or other ‘insiders’ often found a gig on TV. They can’t get enough of the ‘principled turncoats’ who turned their back on conservative principles. But good luck finding anyone who flipped the other direction on principle.

If you notice a pattern here, it’s because the ‘news networks’ have long since abandoned the kind of journalism that answered the who-what-when-where-why questions and have traded that for shameless activism in service of a political agenda.

That’s why, when NBC hired someone who left the GOP on reasonably good terms, without declaring WAR on their nominee… it triggered a mutiny, and the tantrum was rewarded with the firing of McDaniel.

From NBC’s official statement:

“There is no doubt that the last several days have been difficult for the News Group. After listening to the legitimate concerns of many of you, I have decided that Ronna McDaniel will not be an NBC News contributor,” he said. “No organization, particularly a newsroom, can succeed unless it is cohesive and aligned. Over the last few days, it has become clear that this appointment undermines that goal.”

“I want to personally apologize to our team members who felt we let them down. While this was a collective recommendation by some members of our leadership team, I approved it and take full responsibility for it,” he continued. “Our initial decision was made because of our deep commitment to presenting our audiences with a widely diverse set of viewpoints and experiences, particularly during these consequential times.”

Conde said that the network was committed to its “principle that we must have diverse viewpoints on our programs,” which means that they will “redouble” their efforts to “seek voices that represent different parts of the political spectrum.”

The problems at NBC News created additional problems for McDaniel as Creative Artists Agency, the Hollywood talent agency that negotiated her deal, ended its relationship with her, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

‘Aligned’ they said. ‘Committment to diverse viewpoints’, they said.

Have they not figured it out yet?

The people they have hired actively HATE any viewpoint that disagrees with their own. They will not PERMIT NBC to hire anyone who doesn’t despise the GOP as much as they do.

For example:

Leaders at the network have a decision to make: keep the partisan hacks they have now, and the network will never get a ‘diverse’ opinion. Result? It will only become further entrenched in the dead-end echo chamber it has locked itself into since at least as long as 2016.

On the other hand, embracing diverse opinion will not only lead to an open revolt from the staff, but from viewers and advertisers as well — seeing as you NBC has already alienated anyone looking for news rather than propaganda.

While leaders there figure out how to dig yourselves out of this hole, you can busy yourselves in figuring out how to deal with the lawsuit Ronna is about to rain down on the network’s head… including wrongful dismissal and Viewpoint Discrimination.

Sure would be a shame if your network had to purge their ‘talent’ as a result of letting the toddlers with tantrums run the show over there, eh?

Shame? Maybe ‘funny’ is more accurate.

John The Baptist: A Rude Awakening Precedes A Great Awakening.

This timely little tome chronicles the politically incorrect ministry of one of God’s most effective wildmen, John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Christ’s ministry.

The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.

In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.

Available in paperback for those of you who like the feel of the pages in your hot, little hands, on Kindle to keep it right at your fingertips, and as an epic Audiobook.
