GOP to NBC: Drop Dead

Posted on | January 19, 2016 | 15 Comments

Matthew Boyle at Breitbart reports:

The Republican National Committee (RNC) officially voted on Monday afternoon to sever its business relationship with NBC News for the previously-scheduled Feb. 26, 2016, GOP presidential primary debate, Breitbart News has learned.
The Debate Committee for the RNC met via conference call and after hearing updates from RNC chairman Reince Priebus officially voted to cancel the partnership with NBC, according to sources on the call. The vote was unanimous.
After the October debate hosted by NBC partner CNBC — in which co-moderator John Harwood was roundly criticized for a poor performance –the RNC suspended its relationship with NBC News over that upcoming Houston debate.
“I write to inform you that pending further discussion between the Republican National Committee (RNC) and our presidential campaigns, we are suspending the partnership with NBC News for the Republican primary debate at the University of Houston on February 26, 2016,” Priebus wrote to NBC News chairman Andy Lack back in late October. . . .
In response, NBC News signaled in a statement at the time that it thought the situation could be resolved. . . .
Clearly, however, despite NBC’s previous hopes that the RNC would reinstate the network as a moderator of the upcoming debate, the RNC has officially moved forward with formal actions to end the network’s plans for the Houston debate. . . .
The move by the RNC to formally extricate NBC News from the process is sure to seriously harm the media organization’s reputation, and its financial bottom line. Typically, networks make millions of dollars in ad revenue with debate moderation due to the extraordinarily high viewership.

    The GOP has terminated its relationship with the DNC and the White House. The GOP has terminated its relationship with MSNBC,

    Oops, sorry. Didn’t mean to type the same sentence twice.

    $98 an hour is pretty good for a small town hooker.

    To quote Tom Lehrer:

    No fellow could ignore
    The little girl next door,
    She sure looked sweet in her first evening gown.
    Now there’s a charge for what she used to give for free
    In my home town.

    I don’t get it. Priebus hates Trump. NBC hate Trump. With so much in common why are they severing ties?

    All of the media hates Trump, so that isn’t a factor.

    They are trying to re-establish credibility that they’re not a bunch of progressive, boot licking, media whoring hacks.
