MSNBC Fires "Historian" and Talking Head Jon Meacham After Learning That Meacham Was Secretly Writing Biden's Speeches

Is this the guy who wrote the masterpiece rhetoric, "preserve trupiminimprazure"?

Because, props.

This lying motherfucker also praised a Biden speech -- without mentioning the obvious conflict of interest that he'd written it himself.

MSNBC political analyst Jon Meacham is DROPPED as a contributor after he failed to disclose he was writing Biden's speeches - including the president-elect's victory address

Jon Meacham will no longer serve as a paid contributor on MSNBC after he failed to disclose that he had been helping write Joe Biden's speeches

The political analyst had recently appeared on several network shows during their coverage of the 2020 presidential election

Meacham most recently commented on Biden's victory speech, without telling MSNBC of his involvement

He had also played a role in crafting Biden's speech at the DNC this summer and in Gettysburg last month


MSNBC contributor Jon Meacham has been dropped by the network after he failed to disclose that he had been helping write President-elect Joe Biden's speeches.

Meacham, a historian and Pulitzer prize-winning biographer, has been a frequent commentator for the network, where he has made appearances on Morning Joe, Deadline, and The 11th Hour with Brian Williams.

The political analyst had most recently appeared on air to comment on the presidential election as well as Biden's victory speech on Saturday night.

Meacham, however, did not tell his employers that he himself had been involved in crafting Biden's speeches, including his acceptance address in Wilmington, The New York Times reported.


Meacham has appeared on the network three times since Biden's remarks on Saturday, including one appearance in which he analyzed the speech.

He was asked to weigh in on the address during an on-air conversation over the weekend with anchor Brian Williams.

'I'm not the historian that you are, and I don't have the Pulitzer that you do, but do you concur that is the way we are used to hearing from our presidents?' Williams asked.

'Absolutely,' Meacham said, without admitting he played a role in the writing process.

Buh muh normzzz.
