Thanks to CNN leftist hack M.J. Lee and the ever-inept White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, Monday’s White House press briefing featured a not-so-subtle call for censorship in the news media and suggestions that Trump-friendly voices — such as Ronna McDaniel being hired by NBC News — be allowed “in the national political discourse” due to the aftermath of the 2020 election and the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot.

Lee brought up NBC as the liberal media — and the peacock network writ large — are in the throes of a infantile public meltdown after NBC News brass chose to bring McDaniel in for a reported $300,000 (triple what most elite commentators make — which isn’t chump change). The CNN hack’s softball showed how she (and her colleagues) felt about all this:

I wanted to ask you about former RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel being hired by NBC News. Given that this is a White House that has condemned lies about January 6, condemned allies about the 2020 election, what do you make of the network hiring somebody who participated in a phone call — um — you know, pressuring Michigan officials to not certify certain votes.
