RNC Chairman Warns NBC and CNN that Hillarypalooza Will Have Consequences


NBC has announced plans to air a Hillary miniseries produced by one of her backers. CNN Films will run a Hillary movie by a radical leftist. Now the GOP is pushing back with a threat to boycott its debates.

Today Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus sent a letter to Robert Greenblatt, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, and Jeff Zucker, President of CNN Worldwide, calling on their networks to cancel their attempts to influence Americans’ political decisions. Both networks are airing programs promoting former Secretary Hillary Clinton ahead of her likely candidacy for president in 2016. NBC has announced plans to air a miniseries, while CNN is producing a documentary. If the productions are not canceled prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting, Chairman Priebus will seek a binding vote of the RNC to prevent the committee from partnering with these networks in 2016 primary debates or sanctioning debates they sponsor.

The paradox here is that the liberal media needs a certain air of legitimacy that comes from both sides participating. On the one hand, Republicans need media exposure. But the media also needs Republicans to participate because it maintains the illusion that the media is some sort of legitimate mediator, a thoughtful and fact-based dispenser of information, rather than a partisan organ of the left.

The GOP may not be prepared for a complete partition, but giving NBC and CNN the boot will hit them where it hurts most, their political influence.

CNN is a news network. Without Republican participation it’s just a less interesting MSNBC. NBC is struggling in the ratings and needs to maintain some credibility as a network, rather than a slate of programs that no one really watches.

Losing the debates won’t hurt their bottom line, but it hurts their image. And if Preibus sticks to it, the fireworks may be interesting.

    You mean those debates that the Republicans are always suckers for agreeing to be questioned by the Marxist mediators. Find somewhere to have a real debate. Republicans -why play their game -let them yell- stand up against them for a change. You have nothing to lose as they poison everything you do.

      Didn’t the GOP learn anything from the 2012 debates? The commentators made history by attacking Romney for Obama.

    I’m not moved by having Reince as the head the party. Not a bad move here, but really, the GOP should find a new chairman. He’s kind of a weenie with a preppy name and zero appeal. Oh yea, he’s a loser.

    “if Preibus sticks to it” I don’t think we have a very good track record. I’m not holding my breath.

      • Crazycatkid

        Ziggy, you just ruined my day. A choice between Hillary and that slob is no choice. Both are islamaphiliacs.

  • ziggy zoggy

    So if NBC and CNN produce hagiographies of Hillary what-does-it-matter-now Warthog, the RNC will refuse to endorse them? Whoah. That’s a scary threat.

  • Elizabeth capecod

    Why don’t conservatives produce a movie about the real Hillary?

  • John

    Lindsay Lohan as Hills?
    I’d watch that….

  • quillerm

    A NBC, CNN Politi-commercial for Hillary, how wonderful. They won’t include Benghazi, or the Bimbo Eruption squad Hillary ran during Bill’s Political career, which is the real Hillary. This will be a fluff job to make her look Presidential. Journalists feel Obligated to make her the first Female President, at all costs. Lies, suppression of the truth, propaganda will be the usual babble spoon fed our gullible leftist voters.

      NEVER underestimate the vulgarity, ignorance or gullibility of the dumbed down , media manipulated American voter.

  • SoCalMike

    Great idea long overdue but my money says the RNC is a collection of spineless cowards and won’t do it.
    They should have moved on this years ago and they won’t niw because they are perfect cowards.
