MSNBC is the cable channel for Democrats who hate Donald Trump.

It no longer even pretends to be a news network anymore.

And that’s because MSNBC just banned this Republican from appearing on air.

Meltdown over NBC hiring Ronna McDaniel 

Democrats inside MSNBC and NBC lost their minds over NBC hiring former Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel as a network political contributor.

Puck’s Dylan Byers had written that McDaniel appearing on MSNBC threatened the network’s mission of catering to Democrat voters and only putting RINOs like Liz Cheney on the air who understand their job is to feed the comfort food about how former President Donald Trump corrupted the GOP.

The backlash got so bad that network President Rashida Jones informed employees that McDaniel would never appear on MSNBC’s airwaves.

“MSNBC has no plans to have former Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on the cable network, its president told employees as backlash to her hiring grows within the wider NBC News organization,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

Chuck Todd embarrasses himself on Meet the Press

However, the crybabies at NBC took their complaining over a Republican joining their ranks on the air.

Former Meet the Press host Chuck Todd – who NBC removed due to low ratings after Todd alienated Republican viewers by carrying on like a partisan hack – bellyached on air about the McDaniel hiring.

In a stunning two-minute on-air commentary, Todd began his sob song by complaining that during her time at the RNC, the organization stopped indulging reporters who acted like pro-Democrat Party character assassins.

“Look, there’s a reason why there’s a lot of journalists at NBC News are uncomfortable with this,” Todd began. “Because many of our professional dealings with the RNC over the last six years have been met with gaslighting, have been met with character assassination.”

Democrats don’t want Republicans on the air

Todd then ranted and raved that NBC hired McDaniel to try and appeal to GOP voters.

And that NBC talent should only be comfortable putting McDaniel on the air if she began reading from the Liz Cheney script.

“When NBC made the decision to give her NBC News’ credibility, you got to ask yourself, what does she bring NBC News?” Todd asked. “And when we make deals like this, and I’ve been at this company a long time, you’re doing it for access. Access to audience. Sometimes it’s access to an individual. And we can have a journalistic ethics debate about that. And I’m willing to have that debate. And if you told me we were hiring her as a technical adviser to the Republican convention, I think that would be certainly defensible. If you told me we’re talking to her, but let’s see how she does in some interviews and maybe vet her with actual journalists inside the network to see if it’s a two-way, what she can bring the network.”

“So I do think, unfortunately, this interview was always going to be looked at through the prism of who is she speaking for? I think you did everything you could do. You got put into an impossible situation by booking this interview, and then all of a sudden, the rug pulled out from under you. You find out she’s being paid to show up,” Todd added.

Double standard on display

Todd and the rest of the bellyachers at NBC and MSNBC had no issue with MSNBC negotiating a deal with Jen Psaki to come on board while she still worked as President Joe Biden’s White House Press Secretary.

Democrats like him didn’t care if Psaki potentially pulled her punches on what information she shared from the White House briefing room podium out of fear what she had to say could alienate MSNBC executives and viewers and thus compromise her job prospects.
