RNC Concerned Over Hillary TV Projects

Republican Party National Chairman Reince Priebus has sent communications to both NBC and CNN protesting their plans to produce some documentary features about Hillary Clinton, claiming that these give her an unfair advantage as a possible 2016 presidential candidate. But, strangely Priebus is threatening to not allow either NBC or CNN air the Republican primary debates in 2016. This threat seems strange because these debates largely have a regional appeal where the primary is gong to take place, and NBC isn’t all that interested in airing these low rated events. But, CNN would miss coverage of these debates, and is more likely to attempt to work something out with Priebus such as some specials on the leading Republican candidates in 2016 as a compromise.

BTW, that name Reince Priebus, it’s not to be confused with Prince Jackson….

  • Good for Reince Priebus. I wouldn’t watch anything doing with Hitlary. Sorry to hear that Diane Lane is lowering herself to play that evil witch Hitlary – can’t imagine. That does it for me, no longer is Diane Lane my favorite actress. What a shame!

      I happen to believe that the RNC is looking for a way to either shorten the debates or end them altogether anyway. The long debate season only helped to hurt Romney in the end because it gave many voters a longer time to find things about the Republican candidates that they just hated, where Obama could have been vulnerable because of his weak economic performance, but the Romney and the Republicans gave the public an opportunity to see many candidates who were social extremists, insensitive to working people and minority voters, or who only represented the economic interests of the most wealthy. Despite his flaws, Obama looked like the real moderate of the bunch who pretty managed to tell many voters why they shouldn’t vote Republican. – One bright spot foer 2016 is that New York Representative Peter King is running. He’s a moderate conservative that has great credentials and is electable compared to some kooks like Rick Santorum that can’t even carry his home state. – That was part of Romney’s problem is that neither he nor Ryan were able to win their home state’s in 2012. That’s why I predicted they would lose. In the 2000 election Al Gore didn’t actually lose the election because of Florida, but because he lost his home state of Tennessee. If you can’t win your home state, you won’t be elected. It’s that simple. Only Rick Perry or Newt Gingrich could have won their home states in 2012 of the GOP candidates, but both didn’t have the electoral means to win the election either under normal circumstances.

      The RNC used to view debates as educational for voters and free advertising for the party as news. But, with many views far from the mainstream of many voters, the debates probably hurt the GOP much more than help.

    I hear the theme song is “Devil with a Blue Dress on”.

      About all that CNN can do is to offer the RNC the promise of some GOP candidate profiles at later dates before the 2012 election if Hillary actually becomes a candidate out of fairness. I doubt we see something already in production halted.

        It’s just a free campaign mini-series. She has no real accomplishments. In fact, the title of Hiliary’s book was “what difference did I make”
