Now Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus has fired off letters to CNN’s Jeff Zucker and NBC’s Robert Greenblatt, objecting to plans for movie projects about Hillary Clinton and going so far as to threaten not to cooperate in presidential debates in the 2016 cycle.
“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, calling “their actions to promote Secretary Clinton” “disturbing and disappointing.” He called them “political ads masked as unbiased entertainment.”
Priebus wrote that if the networks have not agreed to pull the programming before the RNC’s summer meeting on Aug. 14, he will seek a “binding vote” that the RNC will not partner with the networks in 2016 primary debates or sanction debates. This may be one of the most undemocratic moves any Major US Party has demanded from the media! This strong arming is what is expected from a dictatorship controlling the Press's message regarding their regime! Republicans have got to realize the more extreme to the Right they go; the more the main stream media are going to reflect their extremism. Now the Republican Chair Priebus is threatening retaliation!
