The Republican National Committee Says We’re Not Playing Unless You Play Fair
NBC plans to air a 4-hour mini-series called “Hillary” and CNN Films is producing a documentary about her as well.
RNC Chair Priebus wrote: “Out of a sense of fairness and decency and in the interest of the political process and your company’s reputation, I call on you to cancel this political ad masquerading as an unbiased production.”
With the media bias that exists against the Republican Party, I think this is a great move. I think whether they partner or not, this type of approach will demonstrate that the Republican has no intention of sitting back and letting the press define their candidates anymore. NBC says there is nothing they can do since the “news” is separate from “entertainment”. CNN, even after the extreme bias shown by Candy Crowley during the last presidential debates says, just wait and see how it turns out.
I hope this move is an indication that the Republican Party is coming to come out to the next election and define themselves instead of being defined by an unrepentant media.
Good move or bad move? What do you think?
