Former “The View” host Meghan McCain will start new job working as a columnist for the Daily Mail, the outlet announced Thursday.
McCain said in a statement that she wanted to be able to express her conservative views freely, which she felt like she was not able to do during her time as a co-host on “The View,” Daily Mail reported.
“Everything in my life these days is about going back to basics. I started as a columnist & am thrilled at the chance to return to it @DailyMail– I am so excited to work in a completely uncensored free space,” McCain shared Thursday on Twitter.
