RNC threatens to shut out CNN and NBC from presidential debate partnerships
In letters addressed to NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt and CNN President Jeff Zucker on Aug. 5, Priebus warned that RNC members intend to vote on a resolution at their party-wide meeting later this month to shut out the networks from partnering with the party on Republican primary debates if they do not cancel the programs.
"Out of a sense of fairness and decency and in the interest of the political process and your company's reputation, I call on you to cancel this political ad masquerading as an unbiased production,” Priebus wrote. "If you 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 of the RNC stating that the committee will neither partner with you in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates which you sponsor."

OK, so the DNC will simply respond by cutting FOX NEWS out of debates.
Talk about shooting themselves in the foot; the RNC is threatening to shut NBC and CNN out of partnerships in the debates for the 2016 elections unless they cancel the Hillary biographies they have in the works.

The media needs to be real careful on how much they cry and scream...or people might recall two little words. "Fairness Doctrine"..and that damn sure was no conservative rallying cry. Notice though, it was only a 'necessity' to look into and pursue when the political winds were blowing the other direction. Now? You simply never hear the term used. Anywhere. Funny how that works.
Sayings about throwing rocks from glass houses come to mind here.

They should let NBC and CNN continue to shill for the democrats ... call them out it repeatedly ... and then put into production their own miniseries on Christie or Jindal or Rubio or whoever it is that the GOP is thinking about.
