RNC pulls out of NBC debate set for February

crew-22312Donald Trump started it when he forced the debate committees to shorten their length from three hours to two.


Now The R.N.C.’s National Chairman Reinse Priebus is telling the networks it’s our way or the highway.

Of course the networks will cave, they need the ad revenue……”Follow the Money.”


“I write to inform you that pending further discussion between the Republican National Committee (RNC) and our presidential campaigns, we are suspending the partnership with NBC News for the Republican primary debate at the University of Houston on February 26, 2016,” Mr. Priebus wrote.



“The RNC’s sole role in the primary debate process is to ensure that our candidates are given a full and fair opportunity to lay out their vision for America’s future. We simply cannot continue with NBC without full consultation with our campaigns.

“We understand that NBC does not exercise full editorial control over CNBC’s journalistic approach,” he said.

“However, the network is an arm of your organization, and we need to ensure there is not a repeat performance.”

Ali Zelenko, spokesperson for NBC News, called it “a disappointing development.”

“However, along with our debate broadcast partners at Telemundo we will work in good faith to resolve this matter with the Republican Party,” Ms. Zelenko said in a statement.

The debate in Colorado was the third of the GOP nomination contest, which the RNC hoped to have more control over following the unruly 2012 race.

But the moderators in prime-time debate Wednesday lost control of the event, coming under fire from the candidates, who panned their questions as inaccurate and shallow.

CNBC has since faced a barrage of criticism.

“While debates are meant to include tough questions and contrast candidates’ visions and policies for the future of America, CNBC’s moderators engaged in a series of ‘gotcha’ questions, petty and mean-spirited in tone, and designed to embarrass our candidates,” Mr. Priebus said in the letter.

“What took place Wednesday night was not an attempt to give the American people a greater understanding of our candidates’ policies and ideas,” he said.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    I think the debate should be shown on a media neutral national television channel. C-Span, perhaps? The questions should be asked, not by well-known media pundits wielding their own political axes to grind, but, in the solidly American tradition of a town hall meeting, by average United States citizens, both Democrats and Republicans, who consider themselves liberals or conservatives, religious and non-religious, etc., a basic cross-section of voting Americans, with real pertinent concerns, especially about our continuing existence as a secure and free nation.
    I think most of the American people, myself included, are sick and tired of the partisan and petty grievances which have come to define national political debates in this nation.

    I agree about the questions, C-Span isn’t media neutral in my opinion.


  3. Pamela says:

    I was not sure about it (C-Span) either. I really cannot think of a media neutral channel. Even cartoon channels are infested by the p.c. police these days!
