DNC Statement on Ronna McDaniel’s New Position at NBC After Years of Attacking the Free Press and Our Democracy

In response to former RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel’s new role at NBC, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement: 

“The free and independent press is fundamental to our democracy, and has and continues to face unprecedented attacks by Donald Trump and his lackeys – including Ronna McDaniel – to chip away at its credibility and allow space for MAGA lies and deceit. 

“All of us – the independent press included – have a duty to stop them. 

“Lying about the 2020 election results culminated in Donald Trump encouraging his supporters to stop the peaceful transfer of power. Allowing one of the key architects of that shameful period in our country the platform to whitewash her role in what happened, and then provide ongoing ‘commentary’ about American politics, does a disservice to the journalists who put themselves in harm’s way to cover the violence and brutality at the Capitol so the American people knew the facts. 

“There should be no debate about the truth in our political discourse. Ronna McDaniel is a proven liar, and has no place in an honest and objective conversation about the future of this country.”
