BREAKING NEWS – Los Angeles, California – CNN host Fareed Zakaria argued on HBO’s “Real Time” that liberals should stop enforcing “double standards” on their platforms after the firing of former RNC chair Ronna McDaniel from NBC.

NBC News terminated its contract with McDaniel after just four days. According to a memo and apology that NBC Universal News Group Chairman Cesar Conde issued to staff, McDaniel’s hiring was not conducive to a “cohesive and aligned” newsroom.

When asked to weigh in on the controversial decision, Zakaria pointed out that the arguments to remove McDaniel were not fair to both conservatives and liberals.

“They say, no, it’s not about that, it’s that she lied,” Zakaria said of McDaniel’s firing from NBC. “Well, Bill Clinton lied, under oath. I think, last time I checked, he’s been on MSNBC. They say, well, she’s an election denier. Well, Stacey Abrams was an election denier about her own election and they’ve had her on.”

The President of MSNBC Rashida Jones and NBC News president Noah Oppenheim penned an angry letter to CNN, demanding that they immediately fire Zakaria, “due to his refusal to ignore liberal double standards, and for not being committed to always rationalize the behavior of democrats, no matter what they’ve done.”
