Meghan McCain’s new gig: Online columnist for Daily Mail
Meghan McCain is looking at a new view with her latest gig.
More than a month after her departure from “The View,” the former talk show host has joined the DailyMail.com website as a columnist. Her first article will go live the week of Sept. 20.
The popular U.K. tabloid’s publisher and editor in chief Martin Clarke made the announcement Thursday, promising that “Meghan’s column will be a space for her to have her uncensored say on the news of the day whether it be political, breaking news, showbiz or issues based.”
“I’ve always been impressed with Meghan’s ability to generate discussion and debate and I look forward to her columns tackling what Americans are talking about,” he added about the staunch Republican commentator who previously served as a columnist for The Daily Beast.
“I’ve always respected the way DailyMail.com tackles issues across the entire political spectrum and I’m looking forward to sharing my own opinions without fear or favor on the important issues that matter to our readers across the globe,” the 36-year-old daughter of former war hero and late senator John McCain added.
In her own statement, McCain wrote: “It’s a privilege to join the DailyMail.com team as a columnist. I’ve been an avid reader of the website for many years and have been impressed by its global influence and reach. It truly is a juggernaut.”
During her four-year tenure with “The View,” the “Dirty, Sex Politics” author often clashed with the more liberal-leaning co-hosts of the long-running chatfest. But she has also drawn ire from her conservative colleagues for criticizing Republicans and agreeing with Democrats.
