RNC Will Boycott NBC, CNN for Primary Debates If Networks Air Hillary Films
RNC chairman Reince Priebus announced today that if NBC and CNN go forward with their plans to make a miniseries and a documentary respectively about Hillary Clinton, the GOP will not partner with either network for any of the primary debates in 2016.
“It’s appalling to know executives at major networks like NBC and CNN who have donated to Democrats and Hillary Clinton have taken it upon themselves to be Hillary Clinton’s campaign operatives,” Priebus said in a statement. “Their actions to promote Secretary Clinton are disturbing and disappointing.”
“If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s summer meeting on August 14,” Priebus added, “I will seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor.”
