RNC accuses NBC and CNN of boosting Hillary, threatens to nix debates

by - August 06, 2013

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Monday called on CNN and NBC to rethink their decisions to shoot films about Hillary Clinton, calling each a “thinly veiled attempt at putting a thumb on the scales of the 2016 presidential election.” Priebus also threatened, if the networks push forward with their plans, to avoid partnerships with them for any 2016 presidential debates. Both networks announced their plans in recent weeks. CNN’s documentary is set to run on TV and in theaters, while NBC’s shooting a miniseries starring Diane Lane. “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. “Their actions to promote Secretary Clinton are disturbing and disappointing.”
