Republicans to Boycott CNN, NBC 2016 Presidential Debates Over Hillary Clinton Features?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Republican National Committee has voted to boycott any presidential debates on CNN and NBC if they proceed with their planned Hillary Clinton TV features.

With no audible dissent, GOP officials approved a resolution backing the position on the debates at their annual summer meeting in Boston on Friday.

The RNC says a Clinton documentary and miniseries - in the works over at CNN and NBC, respectively - will put a "thumb on the scales" in 2016.

The draft resolution, obtained by Fox News in advance and later voted on by RNC officials, calls these "political ads masked as unbiased entertainment."

Basically, the RNC believes CNN and NBC are Hillary 2016 co-chairs.

If those programs appear on the networks, Republicans will not.

"The RNC will neither partner with these networks in the 2016 presidential primary debates nor sanction any primary debates they sponsor," the group says.

Before the vote, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus decried what he called the "obvious bias" of a network that would spotlight Clinton in this fashion:

"CNN and NBC anchors will just have to watch on their competitors' networks. The media overplayed their hand this time. We're done putting up with this nonsense."

"There are plenty of other outlets. We'll still reach voters, maybe more voters."

The resolution claims the programming by CNN and NBC would show "political favoritism" in the election and jeopardize the credibility of the networks.

Last month, CNN Films announced it was producing a documentary on Hillary Clinton to premiere next year, first in theaters and then on CNN.

NBC also announced a four-hour Hillary miniseries starring Diane Lane, on the life of the former Secretary of State and First Lady of the United States.

FU! Bush & Cheney did not create class warfare! Tell me dumbass- what would you do if someone bombed the trade towers and killed thousands? I'm guessing you would probably give them a pass! Obama is a fraud. The main stream media are liars and the editing of 911 tapes prove it. NBC is a joke! Either you are gay or unemployed or just a total social misfit because those are the kind of people that continue to support Obama. This guy has done nothing but stir up shit since you assholes voted him in. He has commented on things (Trayvon, Boston PD, Zimmerman verdict, lying about a UTube video in regards to Benghazi) and he should have kept his mouth shut. He is not a president for all he is a race baiter. His only solution is to reach in my pocket in order to help your hopeless ass! Bush had dignity, standards and he actually believed in having a direction. Obama is a coward, a bullshitter and we all see him for what he is! His buddy holder wants to lower prison terms for drug offenses- (Blacks) . What the fu*k is he doing for the law abiding citizens! It's people like you Bonnie that are the ball & chain of society. Obama has to go. Obama has not come close to being what this country needs. He has no answers.

They should boycott! The way it was so biased last year was pathetic. Candy Crowley and that sick group. To make a movie and air it on the stations is like insider trading, it's time to cut the bullshit. Obama will destroy this country by 2016 if the republicans don't take the senate.
