RNC to networks: Drop Hillary Clinton documentary or we drop 2016 debates


Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus sent letters Monday to both CNN and NBC vowing the GOP will not partner with either network during the 2016 primary debates if they air programs about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “ahead of her likely candidacy for president.”

Priebus has called on both networks to “cancel their attempts to influence Americans’ political decisions” and not air the upcoming Clinton miniseries scheduled for NBC and documentary being produced by CNN.

If the Clinton shows aren’t cancelled prior to the RNC’s summer meeting in mid-August, Priebus will “seek a binding vote” to prevent the GOP from partnering with the networks for the 2016 presidential primary debates.

BizPac Review obtained the statement from Priebus, along with both letters to the networks.

The Chairman’s statement, published by the RNC, read:

“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,” said Chairman Priebus. “Their actions to promote Secretary Clinton are disturbing and disappointing. I hope Americans will question the credibility of these networks and that NBC and CNN will reconsider their partisan actions and cancel these political ads masked as unbiased entertainment.

If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, 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.”
