Today, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus said NBC and CNN must halt their Hillary Clinton programming or the RNC won’t partner with them for the 2016 Republican primary debates.

WASHINGTON – Today Republican National Committee (RNC) 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.

Many Twitterers, fed up with liberal media bias, applauded the move:

On the other hand, this conservative Twitter user raises a good point:

Better late than never.

Update:

NBC and CNN respond:

  • World B. Free

    Meh…. I’m sure the RNC will fold like a cheap suit, again.
    The networks will air their Hillary puff pieces without any consequences.

    • Love of Country

      You’re probably right ….. Reince is a feckless stooge, anyways, IMHO.

      For the last 7 years he has allowed the public-at-large to believe GOP fiscal policies caused the Great Recession instead of the Fannie/Freddie sub prime housing debacle.

      So in 2012, Mitt was unable to successfully recommend lowering taxes and easing regulations because supposedly Bush did it and it resulted in the Great Depression.

      And guess what? They’ll say the same thing against the GOP nominee in 2016.

      So thanks for letting that canard rot and fester in the minds of the American voter for the last seven years, Reince …. not!

      • World B. Free

        To be fair, Michael Steele is just as guilty of that exact behavior.

        • Love of Country

          And so is Sean Hannity (of all people) and everyone else at Fox News (unbelievable). Because for years Hannity’s guests have said Bush fiscal policies of lower taxes and less regulations gave us the Great Recession and he nor anyone else at Fox has ever once defended or even rejected such partisan nonsense.

          No one will ever say “Sure, Bush did spend way too much, however, his policies did no cause the Great Recession. In fact, inspite of inheriting a recession and a great many headwinds and disasters, he did grow the economy for a record 52 continuous months once he cut taxes. And over the next six years he added 8.3 million new jobs to the economy and kept unemployment at or below 5%.

          And it was during this unprecedented period of growth that George Bush tried and tried (17x) to reign-in Fannie and Freddie but the Dems in Congress prevented him while trying to assure all of us there was nothing to be concerned about.

          We all know it was the enormity of the sub-prime lending debacle that drove our economy into the ditch so why would you assign all the blame to George Bush when the Democrats were mostly to blame?”

          I mean, how hard is it to say something like that from time to time instead of just shrugging your shoulders every single time and conceding the bogus point?

          I just can’t believe no one has at least blurted out that Bush policies actually gave us the longest continuous growth in several decades ….. but instead it’s always crickets and the folks at home have to figure that if someone like Sean Hannity has never once fought back from the baseless accusations from the Left, then in fact, they must all be true.

          • World B. Free

            Excellent post. Thank you, you are spot on.

            Let’s not forget to place the majority of the blame where it belongs, and that is with the entire GOP establishment. I remember in 2008 when the housing market crashed, Pelosi, Reid, Hoyer, and company rushed to their podiums and declared to all the world that it was all because of GOP policies.

            The Republican response? Crickets chirping.

            Idiots. No wonder they can’t win elections, and our once great country is slipping away from us right before our eyes.

      Is? I disagree. Should be? Probably. After all, Hillary hasn’t a single accomplishment to her name – and that’s not the only respect in which she could rightly be stamped “Obama 2.” A foolish populace believed it inoculated itself from the charge of racism by… voting for a man because of his race. In three years and three months, it will be able to do the same for the charge of sexism.

            Of all the incredibly stupid things you have said on here this takes the proverbial cake. You Obama butt-monkeys blame Bush for things that happen four+ YEARS after he was out of office, yet you’re going to hold Bush responsible for something that only happened 8 months into his term?

            As a libertarian I am no fan of Bush, but you went too damned far here. You are sick, man – seek help.

          • wwbdinct

            Denying the findings of the 9/11 tribunal are we? Yes, it happened on his ‘watch’. However, it was planned for before Bush. Had Clinton acted upon the advice to assassinate him when he had the chance, one could speculate that the event might have never occurred in the first place.

          History lesson for the intellectually handicapped:
          In 1990, the US (with backing from the UN) went to war against Saddam Hussein for the invasion and annexation of Kuwait. Operation Desert Storm lasted 100 hours. We kicked their asses. As part of Iraq’s surrender to US and Coalition forces, they agreed to allow UN inspectors within their areas to ensure they were not developing nuclear weapons.
          Between 1991 and 2002, Hussein kicked out the weapons inspectors 17 times. How many times should a country get warned before further action is taken? Diplomacy failed. GW Bush made the right call.

    So to appease the GOP leaders NBC will produce retrospective on both Reagan and GW Bush. The first will be called “Father of Evil” and the second will be called “Idiot Son of Evil”.

    The RNC will thank NBC for hearing their complaint and responding appropriately. NBC will then get to do the first debate of the 2016 race with David Gregory as moderator. It will be billed as “The Angel versus The Devil”…..

    • Spiny Norman

      Don’t be surprised if they do.

        I was serious. GOP leaders and consultants like power accruing to Washington DC every bit as much as Democrats. They just act a little more reluctant.

    July 29th: “NBC announced here on Saturday that it was preparing a four-hour mini-series based on the life of Mrs. Clinton and hoped to broadcast it before any possible formal declaration that she was running. That would avoid the possibility of other candidates demanding equal time, said Robert Greenblatt, NBC’s top entertainment executive. Mr. Greenblatt said NBC bought the project even though it had no script yet, though the deal came with a star attached: Diane Lane, who was nominated for an Academy Award in 2003 for her leading role in the film ‘“Unfaithful.’ A spokesperson for Clinton declined to comment on the series, saying he had been unaware of its development.”

    • Spiny Norman

      “[A]void the possibility of other candidates demanding equal time”? Hell, that only the half of it. They are fully aware that they are providing an “in kind” campaign contribution, but are skirting campaign finance law by getting it aired before she announces – and you know damn well she will announce while NBC’s hagiography is still fresh in the viewers’ minds.

      It’s absolutely shameless.

    • wwbdinct

      Poor Diane Lane. They are going to have to ugly her up something fierce to play that old hag. I wonder if they’re going to plastercast her Cankles?

    So Reince honestly believes having a series of debates on Fox will do his party good(as opposed to making his party look like it only cares about a select group of white older people(ie the Fox target audience))? My guess is CNN and NBC call his bluff and he bends over like a cheap hooker

    Here is a tip to Reince, chances are NBC and CNN will do what they feel will generate more cash for their companies, it’s called Capitalism. If you go up against the chances for those networks to make profits you will lose or look like a fool for even trying

    • Fire and Adjust!

      Quick, alert the Occupy movement and all of the other Wall St. hating democrats……………. Capitalism at work at NBC and CNN……….. By their definition that means they are horrible and must be put down right?…………..

    • Markward

      What are the viewing statistics for Fox Vs CNN and MSNBC… Oh that’s right Fox beats them both!

      • Justin Time

        Still doesn’t change that more then half of Fox’s Demo is old, white and over 65 years old. It’s a basic case of preaching to the choir if the RNC decides to have Fox only debates(maybe they can do a debate on that Russia Today channel if they looking for a different outlet. lol)

        If the GOP wants to send out messages to more then old white people then they will have to find different outlets to give their message. All that being said given the 2012 debates/clown show it might be in their best interest not to have any debates elsewhere. The Clown show basically killed any credibility a serious candidate like Romney had and same thing might happen in 2016(ie some extreme right candidates will drag a legit candidate so far to the right they will pay for it in the General election)

        As i said Reince’s “threat” is so hollow he is just setting himself to become the butt of jokes(my guess is he is hoping people will forget in 2 years when CNN and NBC have their Hillary documentaries and the RNC has those stations host debates, in the meantime he is trying to pander to the “stick it to the man crowd” in the GOP)

        • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

          What you sneeringly call “Fox’s demo” sounds like a fairly proportional slice of the population. And if you want to talk about laughable boycotts, let’s talk about the Chick-Fil-A one.

          And yes, tell us how McCain and Romney were so far to the right it cost them the general. Well, compared to Sock Puppet they were, I suppose. After all, when you have actual, avowed Communists cheering “We won!” the morning after, it says quite a bit about the candidate, no?

          • Justin Time

            1. The Fox Demo is what it is. In terms of cable news viewers it’s great but in general in terms what it means in the bigger picture is Fox has less then 1% of the US population watching. You need to somehow find close to 22% of the population to get on your side(a combined ~130M people voted in 2012, 65M equals roughly 21-22% of the population)

            It should be pointed out the Fox Demo are more likely to die in the next 10-20 years so while they might be a decent minority to get behind you now(to be honest you have to combine as many small groups as possible to try get over that 50%+1 goal), long term they don’t really factor much. The Fox Demo might be enough to get by in a mid term election(like 2014) when not as many people vote and the Fox Demo basically are much more reliant voters(in that case you only need to get 14% of the population behind you) but it’s not enough to win a bigger election(2016)

            If Reince feels that pulling out of debates where he can message different kinds of viewers more power to him but it’s a losing strategy and in the end I feel he is just full of hot air. But hey I am guessing his messaging panders to the extreme righties.

            Yes, of course…because nobody NOW under 50 will come into that age bracket in the next 10-20 years.

            So much fail…and you didn’t even realize it.

        • mike_in_kosovo

          Still doesn’t change that more then half of Fox’s Demo is old, white and over 65 years old.

          Per Nielsen, the Peacock is currently serving a median age of 47.8 years, down 2 percent versus the first two weeks of
          2011-12. Already the oldest-skewing broadcast net, CBS has aged up two-and-a-half years with a median age of 57.8, while ABC has added nearly two years to its median age (55.3, up from 53.4).

          Fox has also grown a bit longer in the tooth, aging one-and-a-half years to 43.3.

          • Justin Time

            Umm you do realize that is network stations not cable news. While their might be a small cross over I don’t think viewers of American Idol(many teens and tweeners) is flipping over and watching Hannity and O’Reilly when AI isn’t on.

            Per and article from a couple weeks ago

            “For most of the television business — the segment that relies on advertising — that would be serious cause for concern because ad sales are almost always based on a target age of 25 to 54, and Fox News, for the last two years, has had a median age of 65-plus in its ratings both for the full day and for prime time”

            Just fort he sake of comparison

            News audiences always trend old, and the viewers of Fox’s competitors are hardly in the full flower of youth. MSNBC’s median age for its prime-time shows this year is 60.6; CNN’s is 59.8.

            CBS has frequently been needled for having older viewers, but at 56.8, its median viewer is far younger than Fox News’s. (Viewers at Fox News’s sister network, Fox Broadcasting, have a median age of 50.2; at ABC, the median is 54.4; at NBC, it’s 47.7.)

            As I said below, old white people may be a nice block to have since 1) it’s a fairly large group and 2) chances are they are more likely to vote no matter what(which is something that can’t be said for many other voting blocks) but if you plan on winning in the next few years(or long term) just based on that group it’s not a winning strategy

            It’s a basic case that people who remember the “glory years” of Reagan and are Republicans no matter what are dieing off and soon people who remember the “glory years” of Clinton will become that 65 year old group soon enough

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Umm you do realize that is network stations not cable news.

            “Series of debates on Fox” “Fox target audience” “Fox’s demographic”

            Oddly enough, there’s a decided lack of the word “News” after the word “Fox” in your examples. There’s also a decided lack of the word “cable”.

            Lame attempt to shift the topic.

          • Justin Time

            The last set of RNC debates, 17 were on cable news networks, 3 on network TV(and on Saturday nights to boot which is a poor time in terms of ratings).

            Fair enough I should have been more specific about Fox’s demo referring to Fox News which would be the only other cable channel they can have debates on besides Bloomberg or Russia Today if they decide to ditch CNN or an NBC station(MSNBC or CNBC) but my point still stands that basically ditching 2 of the 3 major cable news networks is ridiculous and hollow, but I would love to see him “show them” when they do decide to air Hillary documentaries

            My guess is the RNC for starters will want to cut down the number of debates from 20 to 12-15ish, but it still needs places to air all of those and say if ABC, CBS, FOX(network) all pick up one, where else are the other 9-12 debates be airing? I don’t think airing 9-10 debates on Fox News and Fox Business will serve the GOP agenda well that will basically look like it only cares about a certain type of viewer and they to scared to face anybody else.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            but my point still stands that basically ditching 2 of the 3 major cable news networks is ridiculous and hollow

            You’re right, your point IS ridiculous and hollow. Hint: there’s a *reason* why CNN had a big bump this last month or so due to the Zimmerman trial. Do you *really* think Priebus and the GOP give much of a rat’s azz regarding ‘fairness’ to networks that have done nothing but misrepresent everything they say?

          • Justin Time

            Glad you agree that my point of throwing away 2 of 3 cable news networks as a source to try get out your message is both ridiculous(as in stupid if they do that) and hollow(as in won’t happen and an idle threat given by Reince)

            As I said when CNN and NBC air their documentaries Reince has 2 options

            1) Hold to his word and not have any debates on CNN or NBC networks, losing potential voters in the process.

            or

            2) Show he is full of hot air and go back on his word

            I am guessing #2 (although their is an easy out for Reince if he is not the chair of the RNC by 2015, so if that is the plan then he is still full of hot air)

            And in terms of the RNC and GOP, yes I do think they care about getting their message out to as many places as possible so many can hear about it. By throwing away CNN or NBC and to a lesser degree MSNBC they basically are throwing away potential voters.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Glad you agree

            I didn’t. Guess reading isn’t all that fundamental anymore.

            1) Hold to his word and not have any debates on CNN or NBC networks, losing potential voters in the process.

            Just HOW many voters do you think they’ll pick up from the ‘won’t watch Fox’ crowd, anyway?

          • Justin Time

            “I didn’t. Guess reading isn’t all that fundamental anymore”

            While I get you were trying to insult me(or at least my point), what you wrote technically agrees with my point. It’s a very poorly worded sentence that could either mean you agree with my point or my point is ridiculous or hollow, I was just highlighting that in my statement(sarcasm doesn’t generally do well on the internet).

            “Just HOW many voters do you think they’ll pick up from the ‘won’t watch Fox’ crowd, anyway?”

            I don’t think the debates will win many new voters(much like I don’t expect Democrat debates no matter where they are will win many new voters for the Dems), it’s more a case if the RNC decides to have a bunch of FOX(news) base debates it helps in the Democrat narrative that the Republican are basically a Fox and the Fair Right entertainment media party and nothing more and that in itself will turn off moderates. They might be able to get away with snubbing MSNBC, but if they try snub CNN that is a potential to turn of some middle of the road voters who might be willing to vote for either side.

            It’s basically the same reason the DNC would be stupid to not allow Fox news to host one debate. If the DNC wrote off Fox the narrative from the GOP would be the Dems are to chicken poop to stand up to somebody who doesn’t agree with them and this shows what a bunch of cowards they are.

            “Your point is ridiculous and hollow” is pretty plain English – I can explain it to you, but I can’t understand it for you.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            The last set of RNC debates, 17 were on cable news networks, 3 on network TV

            And yet, somehow those hardcore, “Faux News” hating liberals still forced themselves to tune in, even when it was on Fox – amazing!

            Please, those are facts. Our libtard here has preconceived notions, and those are way stronger than anything you have.

    • Victoria Richardson

      CNN and NBC are going to want the debates because it brings in money and viewers, so if there is no debates, CNN and NBC lose money.

    • AZGunslinger

      More people will see the debates if they are on Fox rather than CNN and NBC.

    How can fiction become a documentary?

    People, people, Priebus did a GOOD thing, no? So why all the negativity? Let’s wait and see what happens. If it turns out bad, there will be plenty of time to jump on him then.

  • Markward

    Really? Even without the Hillary films they are in the tank for the shrew anyway.

  • Gallatin

    I disagree with Reince I support CNN’s and NBC’s First Amendment rights. With that being said I would like to see Fox News make their own version; I bet it would get more viewers than CNN and NBC combined.

    • Stone Bryson

      You might want to re-read that first amendment thingie. It really has nothing to do with this.

      • Gallatin

        Sure it does CNN and NBC can say whatever they want for all I care, neither one is a news organization. So why is Reince pretending they are?

        • Nov-cubed

          As Stone suggested, you might wanna have a re-vidi of the 1st.

          • Gallatin

            Okay so Reince isn’t Congress and he is exercising his rights to free expression in his response to CNN and NBC to which I reply to Reince and the Republicans: Man Up, this crap has been going on for how many years now?

            As ThatsRetardedSir says: Meh…. I’m sure the RNC will fold like a cheap suit, again.The networks will air their Hillary puff pieces without any consequences.

          • Nov-cubed

            Right, everyone is exercising the 1st.

            Furthermore, I would not spend a dime of the RNC’s advert
            budget on any media that are openly hostile to the RNC.

            I’d put that money into the ground game and some savy
            interweb work.

            The broadcast budget that remains, should highlight 3 issues
            and who the citizen can get with to help fix said issues.

            The issues can rotate, just no more than three per cut.

            Empower the People and you won’t need to play kissy-kissy
            with the LSM.

      I don’t think the framers had supporting political deception and propaganda in mind when they wrote the Bill of Rights. In fact, I believe they would have been very much against the deception of the electorate in choosing their leaders, especially those who have little regard for the Constitution itself.

      • Gallatin

        When Thomas Jefferson was John Adams’s Vice President he paid a newspaper editor to print lies about President John Adams.

        • Truth

          True, they both did so as politicians fighting for office, one might even argue hypocritically, but I don’t think that’s what they had in mind as they collaborated on the Constitution.

  • kateorjane

    CNN wants to pretend the GOP might be happy with a glowing doc about Hillary? NBC seems to be independent of its own cable arm so maybe it’s true they are independent of the Entertainment arm.
    Regardless – ban both of them.

  • Stu Gotts

    GOP should just demand equal time to air the true story of Shrillary…..Filegate, Travelgate, her lies with the Watergate Committee, and wrap it up with a full hour on Benghazi.

    • World B. Free

      Yep. That’s pretty much what we did when we “swiftboated” John Kerry.

      Can you imagine the impact it would have if the families of the 4 slain, and other Benghazi survivors, were to sit down for an hour long documentary to tell their sides of the story?

      Of course, the RNC would never have the cojones to do that, it would have to be an outside group. And lately, I’m beginning to doubt that even FOX News would have the spine to air such a program.

      • Truth

        I like your idea but you know as fact that MSM would never consider such a thing. However, they are content as hell producing fairy tales knowing full well that votes will be won based on such lies.

  • Stephen L. Hall

    I’d cut off all campaign advertising and events on both networks. Demand that film production costs be reported as campaign contributions. Declare NBC and CNN to be Democrat party appendages.

    Where was this guy’s balls during the primary? Pretty sure this is just BS political posturing and nothing real will come of it. Also, why would two liberal networks care if conservative voices are not heard?

    When did the RNC grow balls?

    The NBC and CNN responses are laughable.

  • Truth

    These Hillary movies are typical liberal propaganda BS! The fools who watch will cast their votes based on these revisionist fairy tales as if they weren’t around during those years that will be covered and have no first hand recollections of what really happened. White Water, Vince Foster, Benghazi, etc., etc. will all be whitewashed and the minions will swallow it hook, line and sinker. It’s a travesty that the greatest democracy in world history is being subverted by such deception like some third rate, ignorant society and that those who are least deserving of it will take over the highest offices of the land yet again.

    Wake up America! You’re once again letting criminals and scoundrels dupe you into handing them power and control over you and the greatest nation that’s ever existed. Stop buying into this perversion of reality. The more you allow yourself to succumb to this evil, the more our great nation is diminished until eventually it ceases to exist.
