More threats from the continuing criminal enterprise that is the Republican Party. Now Reince Priebus, head of the Party, is demanding that CNN and NBC cancel movies and mini-series about Hillary Clinton OR ..... He'll hold his breath? No something worse. He'll pull the ratings juggernauts of the Republican presidential primary debates in 2016.
In letters to the chairman of NBC Entertainment, Robert Greenblatt, and CNN President Jeff Zucker, Priebus slammed the networks' "thinly-veiled attempt at putting a thumb on the scales of the 2016 presidential election" as unfair to other potential candidates from both parties.TPM: RNC To CNN, NBC: Drop Hillary Films Or We’ll Pull Presidential Primary Debates/a>
NBC announced last month it was planning a miniseries starring Diane Lane that would follow Clinton's trajectory beginning in 1998, the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. The series was to air before Clinton could launch a hypothetical White House run. Days later CNN also announced it would produce a documentary to be released in 2014, according to the New York Times.
" 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," Preibus wrote to the networks.
Hmmm. I think NBC will tell Priebus to pound sand. CNN will roll over. NBC knows ratings and the Republican bozos don't get them.
The terror Hillary causes Republicans is fun to see.
