The Republican National Committee just unanimously passed a resolution blocking any partnership with NBC or CNN in the debates if they don’t drop their Hillary Clinton miniseries and documentary film, respectively:

WHEREAS, former Secretary Hillary Clinton is likely to run for President in 2016, and CNN and NBC have both announced programming that amounts to little more than extended commercials promoting former Secretary Clinton; and

WHEREAS, these programming decisions are an attempt to show political favoritism and put a thumb on the scales for the next presidential election; and

WHEREAS, airing this programming will jeopardize will the credibility of CNN and NBC as supposedly unbiased news networks and undermine the perceived objectivity of the coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign by these networks; and

WHEREAS, Robert Greenblatt, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, contributed the maximum amount to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign committee, contributed $25,000 to Obama’s 2012 Victory Fund, and this year contributed $10,000 to the Democratic National Committee; therefore be it –

RESOLVED, that the Republican National Committee calls on CNN and NBC to cancel the airing of these political ads masked as unbiased entertainment; and, be it further

RESOLVED, that 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, and, be it finally

RESOLVED, that the Republican National Committee shall endeavor to bring more order to the primary debates and ensure a reasonable number of debates, appropriate moderators and debate partners are chosen, and that other issues pertaining to the general nature of such debates are addressed.

Why can we (conservatives) not produce a mini-series detailing the corruption and criminal activity of this lawless regime? Put all the FACTS out there and dare the dems to deny the TRUTH. Run the program non-stop and fight the dems with their own tactics, except we have truth on our side...

Remember BENGHAZI!

I think their reasoning is a little lame. They should refuse to partner with NBC and CNN (and CBS and ABC) due to their bias in past debates and their promotion of stories that proved to be hoaxes (such as Dan Quayle buying drugs or Bush being AWOL).

The fact is that they won't moderate debates fairly. They will attempt to use them to promote the other party, and they will find october surprises that will be debunked after election day.

Making a big deal about Hillary's docudramas is only going to make it more controversial and increase viewership of what would surely be incredibly boring.

Oh well. Half measures as usual from the GOP. No party that nominates a guy like Mitt Romney is worth worrying about anyway.
