DeSantis's office says he will boycott NBC, MSNBC over Andrea Mitchell question on Black history
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will boycott media appearances on NBC News and MSNBC shows, according to his press team, until one of the networks star reporters apologizes for a question she posed about the governors education policies.
There will be no consideration of anything related to NBC Universal or its affiliates until and at least Andrea Mitchell corrects the blatant lie she made about the governor, DeSantiss press secretary, Bryan Griffin, said in an email to the network that he posted on Twitter.
The lie that the DeSantis camp is protesting is a question Mitchell put to Vice President Harris last week, in which she asked: What does Governor Ron DeSantis not know about Black history and the Black experience when he says that slavery and the aftermath of slavery should not be taught to Florida schoolchildren?
Mitchell later said her questioning was imprecise but did not explicitly apologize. The Hill has reached out to NBC for further comment.
If only we could get all the major networks to ignore that asshole.
NBC/MSNBC. 1) The shows are doing him no favors like FOX, and 2) It looks good to his supporters to be a "tough guy" like Trump. (Won't let the media distort his message, etc.)
...when even Andrea Mitchell can take you down?
Best DeSantis news I've seen in months...
