Dudes and dudettes…have you heard the latest about future presidential debates when it comes to the RNC and Reince Priebus? – It’s pretty interesting what’s going on well ahead of time…Limbaugh weighed in on this issue yesterday via his radio show, and Priebus was on with Hannity later the same day expounding his views on this issue. No matter how you look at it, something has to be done and must change when it comes to the liberal controlled debates, no doubt about that!
When Rush Limbaugh heard that GOP chairman Reince Priebus was threatening to pull the 2016 presidential debates from NBC and CNN over scheduled Hillary Clinton film projects, he thought Priebus wasn’t going far enough. Why not refuse to let candidates appear on any network that has a supposed liberal bias? According to Limbaugh, there’s “nothing to gain” from showing GOP debates on those networks and others.
“I assumed this is thought to be an aggressive move” by the GOP, Limbaugh said on his radio show Monday. The way he sees it, what Priebus is really saying to the networks is, “If you guys don’t produce the Hillary movies, then we will happily show up for your biased debate coverage.” Unlike some people, Limbaugh did not find this approach “admirable.”
Limbaugh said the reason the RNC should stop working with CNN, NBC and others on the debates has nothing to do with the Hillary Clinton movies and everything to do with the “biased moderators and journalists” who run them. “The GOP, the RNC ought to pull out of all of these debates that show up on MSNBC, on NBC, on ABC or CNN. There’s nothing to gain!”
In his letters to the networks, Priebus said CNN’s “credibility as a supposedly unbiased news network will most certainly be jeopardized by the decision to show political favoritism” for Clinton and “the credibility of NBC News, already damaged by the partisanship of MSNBC, will be further undermined by the actions of NBC Universal executives who have taken it upon themselves to produce an extended commercial for Secretary Clinton’s nascent campaign.”
If the networks move forward with the projects as planned, he threatened to refuse to partner with them on the 2016 debates. If he goes as far as Limbaugh suggests, Fox News (and possibly CBS) could get the bulk of the debates.

Now, here’s what Preibus had to say last night:
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus joined Sean Hannity Monday night to defend his threat to NBC and CNN that if they do not halt production on the Hillary Clinton films they’re working on, they will refuse to partner with either network in 2016 presidential election debates. Hannity agreed with Priebus that it will probably be a “love letter to Hillary,” while Priebus maintained the GOP needs a better handle on finding friendly outlets and moderators to team up with.
Priebus slammed both networks for spending millions of dollars telling the story of someone who is very likely going to run for president in 2016. He accused CNN and NBC of “being in the business of promoting the Democratic party,” saying he’s tired of working with people “spending time and money” backing the Democrats.
He considered it a “very reasonable” proposal that the Republican party would want to “filter who actually deposes our candidate,” acknowledging that in 2012, there were too many debates that the GOP should have exerted more control over, as well as “moderators who are in the business of making news at the expense of our candidates.”
Priebus told Hannity he wants the GOP to “control the referees that we’re bringing into our playground,” and questioned why if the Hillary Clinton films are so non-partisan and not a big deal, the networks don’t just release them after 2016.
Watch the video below, via Fox News:
Many of us remember there were well over 20 different presidential debates last time…and the various leftist-loons that hosted and controlled all of them, with the exception of one hosted by Fox. – CNN’s Candy Crowley being the worst offender for her messiah to-boot! – Anyone recall that debate between Romney and Dear Leader pertaining to what happened in Benghazi and BHO declaring he called the murderin’ bastids terrorists…and he did NO SUCH thing…but Candy concurred with the Liar in Cheif….it was outrageous to put it mildly!
Anyhow….what would you like to see happen when it comes to future presidential debates come election time?
