Prominent conservatives on social media blasted NBC News on Tuesday after it dropped former Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel as an analyst after just four days.

NBCUniversial News Group chairman Cesar Conde confirmed the news in a memo obtained by Fox News Digital on Tuesday. In it, he wrote, “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.”

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., whose New York Times op-ed in 2020 caused a firestorm at the liberal paper, wrote, “Apparently the only Republicans that NBC can tolerate are Republicans who support Joe Biden.”

Former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy wrote, “It was a bad decision for Ronna to join NBC in the first place. It’s an even worse one for NBC to cut her off after they hired her.”

House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., blasted the network, stating, “NBC ‘News’ is an absolute disgrace.”

Former Wisconsin Republican governor Scott Walker commented, “NBC drops @RonnaMcDaniel but keeps [Jen Psaki] who pushed the Russian collusion lie. Insane!”

Former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich ripped into NBC News for the decision, also noting NBC’s hiring of Psaki, the former Biden White House press secretary.

Some had scorn for McDaniel as well, after her rocky tenure as RNC chair that saw three straight poor election results for the party.

Billionaire X owner Elon Musk got in on the action too, posting, “NBC just hired & immediately fired Ronna McDaniel, because the team refused to let even one Republican join them – that’s how biased they are!”
