Former MSNBC Host Says She Was Reprimanded For Criticizing Hillary Clinton

During an appearance on the popular “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, former MSNBC host Krystal Ball revealed that she had been reprimanded by executives at MSNBC for negative coverage of failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Ball was reportedly scolded by the left-wing network for offering criticism of Clinton in 2014, as she reportedly spoke in a monologue about Clinton’s Wall Street connections and her unfavorability among voters.

She reportedly told her viewers about Clinton’s lack of popularity, discussing how “people are gonna hate this lady” and calling her a “terrible candidate for the moment.”

“Ultimately, shortly before I was let go, I did a monologue when Hillary Clinton was building up to run for president,” Ball told host Joe Rogan. “It was back in 2014, so this was early on, and I did this whole thing that was like ‘She sold out to Wall Street, people are gonna hate this lady, she’s like the terrible candidate for the moment, please don’t run.’ And I was allowed to say it… I did it exactly how I wanted to do it.”

Following the monologue, executives reportedly scolded Ball.

“Afterwards, I get pulled into an office,” she said, adding that executives then told her: “Next time you do any commentary on Hillary Clinton, it has to get approved by the president of the network.”

Despite continuing to cover Clinton after receiving the reprimand, Ball said that the warning from MSNBC executives gave her pause about criticizing the failed Democrat presidential candidate in the future.

The revelation explains a lot, especially the left-wing network’s constant gushing over Democrats — especially heavily-criticized President Joe Biden, whose approval rating is consistently low — and their lack of opposing viewpoints.

MSNBC has been dealing with a significant loss of viewership amid their biased coverage and the loss of their most popular subject to cover, former President Donald Trump, who is not in the public eye nearly as much as he was when he was in office. On February 9, over 200 employees at MSNBC and NBC walked off the job in protest of the layoff that came amid their loss of viewers.

Ball and Rogan also discussed the Russia-Ukraine war during the interview — with both noting that Russia had been provoked by NATO and the U.S. prior to the invasion, though they made it clear that the provocation did not justify the invasion and the lives lost.
