Don’t Platform Election Deniers!

This campaign has ended.

Ronna McDaniel, former RNC chair, worked with Trump to sabotage the 2020 election and refuses to acknowledge that the election was fair, sowing doubt and feeding conspiracies. NBC must reverse its decision to hire McDaniel as a political commentator for the network. Election deniers have no place in reporting news and influencing millions of viewers!

Why is this important?

Ronna McDaniel, a 2020 election denier, Trump ally and former Republican National Committee chair, has just been hired by NBC to be a political commentator.

Ronna McDaniel actively attempted to sabotage the 2020 election results and continues to sow doubt about the integrity of the 2020 election, claiming that the election was rigged and that mail-in voting allowed for fraudulent ballots to be cast, despite investigations proving this false.

Being an election denier has literally paid off for McDaniel. Election deniers should be held accountable for their attempts to undermine our democracy, not rewarded with high-profile jobs.

Upon the announcement, Carrie Budoff Brown, who oversees NBC News political coverage, claimed that McDaniel would provide “an insider’s perspective on national politics and the future of the Republican Party.” Election deniers should not be being platformed as trustworthy sources. It’s both irresponsible and wrong to reward her with this role.

Sign the petition to demand NBC fire Ronna McDaniel as a political commentator now!
