Last week I sent letters to NBC and CNN informing them that if they did not abandon plans to run pro-Hillary productions ahead of her expected presidential campaign, the RNC would vote to exclude the networks from Republican presidential primary debates in the 2016 cycle.
Today we will vote. Now is the time to call out media bias and to ensure fair debates for our candidates. Networks that spend millions to air programs promoting Hillary Clinton can’t be expected to host fair debates.
This week, the RNC has produced a “mini-series” of our own, exploring the things NBC and CNN might “forget” to include in their Hillary productions.
From Monday: Part I: Will the Hillary Films Include “What Difference Does it Make?”
From Tuesday: Part II: Will the Hillary Films Include the McAuliffe-Rodham Scandals?
From Wednesday: Part III: Will the Hillary Films Include the Norman Hsu Scandal?
From Thursday: Part IV: Will the Hillary Films Include the Pardon and Clemency Scandals?
I’m disappointed, though not entirely surprised, that NBC and CNN have decided to move forward with the Hillary promos. But I am proud that Republicans have stood united against this blatant display of media bias, bias so evident that even a number of liberals and journalists have agreed with our position.
And with today’s vote, we take the first step toward more productive debates for our candidates and for voters.

She’s an uninspiring and boring public speaker, she’s prickly with the public and the press, and she’s trying to win a Democratic primary with a message that’s centered in realism. Additionally, she has a lengthy and very public history | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES A lot of the presidential discussion right now is operating on three levels: who would be the best President, who has the best chance (or any chance) of being the nominee, and who has the best chance (or any chance) of winning the general election. Here’s your chance to weigh in, and argue your case in the comments. The | Read More »
South Carolina is going to be a street fight between Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.and Donald Trump. CNN’s Theodore Schleifer, after speaking with nearly a dozen people tied to the Cruz campaign, reports that team Cruz envisions an eventual three-man race between Cruz, Rubio and Trump, but the race isn’t consolidating quickly enough and donors are holing back until there is more “clarity” race:
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Most of our attention is on the Republican race moving south, but the Democrats are doing the same thing. Bernie Sanders has competed well with Hillary Clinton in two rural, northern, white states. But as the race moves to South Carolina, at least two of those attributes change, and that leads us to how I expect Hillary Clinton to | Read More »
