GOP votes against CNN, NBC

The Republican National Committee voted unanimously today to bar any primary debate partnerships with CNN and NBC if they go ahead and air movies about Democrat Hillary Clinton.

"CNN and NBC have both announced programming that amounts to little more than extended commercials promoting former Secretary Clinton," the RNC said in its resolution.

"These programming decisions are an attempt to show political favoritism and put a thumb on the scales for the next presidential election."

The party also said that Robert Greenblatt, the Chairman of NBC Entertainment, contributed to Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, her "2012 Victory Fund," and to the Democratic National Committee.

"If CNN and NBC continue to move forward with this and other such programming, the Republican National Committee will neither partner with these networks in the 2016 presidential primary debates nor sanction any primary debates they sponsor," it said.

Just what the republicans need to get "their message" out to the voters. On the other hand, given their crazed policies they may not want the publicity.
