RNC Suspends NBC

by FOXNews.com  |  published on October 31, 2015


Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus — as he works to address presidential candidates’ frustration with the debate process in the wake of this week’s CNBC face-off — announced Friday that the RNC is “suspending the partnership” with NBC News for an upcoming February debate.

Priebus delivered the news — the latest fallout from a controversial CNBC debate on Wednesday — in a letter to NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack. He noted that CNBC is one of their media properties, even if they do not exercise full editorial control over the network.

Complaining that the CNBC debate was “conducted in bad faith,” Priebus said they need to ensure there is not a repeat performance and will suspend the partnership for a planned debate at the University of Houston on Feb. 26, 2016.

    Why are they complaining and whining? Because they can’t control the Q & A debate. GIve us a break and just answer the questions to the best of your ability. If you can’t do that, pull the plug and just go fishing.

    • john jones

      had you rather have cancer or a mental disorder. answer that.

    What I want to know is why is the RNC so far behind the curve. How can anyone with an IQ above freezer temperature possibly think that the ultra left CNBC would ever ask questions that would help the people make a decision. There primary goal was to make the candidates look as bad as they could. It’s the old closing the barn door after the horses have escaped. When are we going to get some minimal intelligence heading up the RNC. That shouldn’t be asking to much. For the republican debates you need people like Rush, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, Sarah Palin, Trey Gowdy and people who have verifiable conservative credentials asking the questions. You don’t need the CNBC commie corp asking them. The only good thing out of it is that they made the questioners look like the total dufuses that they are.

    • BOC

      Don’t blame CNBC because the GOP keep producing ‘B-Team’ candidates. They have a couple of ‘C-Team candidates in there as well. It all started when Ronald Reagan refused to groom somebody because he thought he was immortal.

      • john jones

        Ronald Reagan wasn’t that smart just smart enough to listen to smart advisors. something the idiot you elected fails to do. instead of listening he fires them.

    • john jones

      maybe harry reid nancy Pelosi and biden should screen the 2 bozo’s in the demon party that is running. if you want something free just vote for Bernie or Hillary and add another 10 trillion to your run away debt.

  • Bernie Lounds

    The media has been the public’s enemy for a long time now.I’m glad someone is finally seeing that.

    • BOC

      Sounds like you just buried your head in the sand because you decided you don’t want to see.

      • Bernie Lounds

        I never watch the main street media because they never tell the truth.I watch all the other media outlets where you can really find out what’s going on in the world.Like people being killed by the hundred by the ISIS just like others did the Jews.

      • john jones

        to boc: the only thing to see is a large trail of debt that liberals are leaving young people to deal with. the problem is that deadbeats that receive these hand outs couldn’t care less about the financial condition of America.

  • dkuch

    Who owns these alphabet news agencies? GEORGE SOEOS The man that has many contracts out for his life, also has more body guards than the president. If he is ever sent back to Europe he will never stand trial, he will just be done away with!

    • BOC

      Your referring to Rupert Murdoch, right.

  • john jones

    it’s about time republicans started fighting back against the progressive liberal media. to be truthful the media supports liberal politicians because they create the most news. lighting up the white house with rainbow colors was a liberal gimmick to get a vote.

    • BOC

      Start over and tell us what you are trying to say.

      • john jones

        duh: I think I am wasting my time with that response. liberalism has become ridiculous under that retard you voted for.

        • BOC

          Personally, I think you ran out of anything constructive to say.

          • john jones

            if there is anything constructive about any conversation I suggest we leave liberal democrats out of the discussion.

          • BOC

            So in other words, you’d rather just hear yourself talk.

          • john jones

            I had rather hear my self talk than listen to a bunch of b.s from liberal socialist. can’t get to a real discussion with a liberal but I must go to work and pay taxes to take care of a bunch of non working illetrates.

          • BOC

            Did you mean: illiterates J.J.? You genius.

          • john jones

            you can change the spelling but you can’t change the meaning. lazy dead beats that are blood suckers.

            pretty soon your man Obama is going to dilute the money that illetrates get by shipping in no English no working retards from Syria. welfare is coming to a close when responsible republicans that want America to be great again takes over this nation and stops the idiotic crap Obama does. that is if we don’t have another French episode in this nation. actually I wish he would open up the borders to all Syrians and let them bomb this country so Obama will take the blame.

            if I had any thing constructive to say democrats would never enter the picture. they don’t construct they give away. now your democratic loser Elizabeth warren wants to give me 580.00 dollars for all seniors in this country but I have never accepted nothing free from democrats now so I think I will pass and she can give it to welfare receipients which would be glad to accept it.

            Liz didn’t offer you a thing. You’re not in a position to turn down anything J.J, you didn’t hit the lottery and you surely aren’t claiming self-sufficiency. It’s wannabe’s like you who keep others from fair fare economically. Pretenders and Phony’s, indeed.

          • john jones

            fair-fare would that be another name for welfare system. something that is taken from one person that works and given to another that has never worked.

          We just barely escaped going under economically for good under 43. Thank God for 44 who saved us despite the conservative ‘suicidal’ tendencies.

          • john jones

            oddly enough I as a staunch republican has never ben a fan favorite of the bush’s. but one thing for sure me or you if we had enough power to keep borrowing money could do a fairly good job of running this nation. Obama I will admit took over under extreme conditions and had to give money to keep companies from going under and stabilize the economy but that was 7 years ago and he hasn’t made any or no progress to stem the debt we have now approaching 20 trillion dollars. his platform for success is borrow,tax and spend and the social programs under him has tripled but he says we are in a recovery. confusing to me and certainly should be to you.

            Not from an economical standpoint. We were in the economic ‘abyss’ under ‘W’. He got us out of it. While the republicans and tea party obstructed progress to no avail. Talk about sabotaging your own country, suicidal indeed.

          • john jones

            Obama didn’t get us out of nothing he just created 11 trillion of more debt. have you ever had to set down and balance a check book? liberals don’t know the meaning of financial responsibility. I want the country to crash and everyone can start over from the ashes while politicians fly over seas to live a luxery life style.

            So you never had a economics course in your life, right? Did you finish high school because I have some real concerns based on how you publish here.

          • john jones

            then go to the bathroom and relieve your self. finished school and worked for 53 years so I could retire. could have retired sooner if I didn’t have my money taken from me and given it to dead beats. I hope you are not one of them.

            we should have went under had that revolution and purged the undesirables in this country. that is what tea party members wanted.

            Think ‘obstructionism’ and you’ll have your answer.

          • john jones

            who is obstructing who. your man is using presidential privilege. some what like hitler did when some one disagreed with him.

  • john jones

    both parties have their negatives and the republican party has unfairly been portrayed as the rich one but there is more wealthy democrats in Washington than republicans. as a voter and an American the thing I despise most is letting uninformed and unintelligent people that never study the issues vote strictly for a candidate that will give them a free hand out. the only good thing if the democrats wind up in Washington I as a 82 year old male can go to college free and that is something I have always craved to be a college graduate.

    • BOC

      I wish it would have happened for you. But I don’t think you would have gotten by English 101.

      • john jones

        sanders and Hillary has never said you had to be intelligent to go to college free they just said it would be free college tuition for every one. you are now trying and insinuating that age should factor into it. if it’s free then I want my share of the pie as illetrates are getting. I can drink and party with the best of them.

          Where did I mention age. Why would I mention it when I’m probably older than you.

        • BOC

          I said nothing about age, only ability.

  • As long as the DNC does not allow any Conservative moderators, then the GOP should not allow any Liberal moderators! Just like we saw at the DNC debate, nothing of substance was asked and it was nothing more than a Kiss Hillary Fish Selling A$$ night!

  • Liz

    They probably think they will get away with it like Megan Kelly. She hasn’t lost anything.

  • W. Coyote

    I wonder if the Republicans are going to be “suspending the partnership” with Megyn Kelly too.

  • muggzer

    I decided to stop looking at every E-Mail and notification as being Republican , Democrat , progressive , conservative . Instead I decided to try looking at the issue itself , then who stands where . What I didnt like was the same theme always from each side , of which there are many , but the same message its about “CONTROL” and the words used after , sacrifice , your safety , your security , who is not thinking of you in the best interest . I have news for you . these politics are over more control and how we will be taken better care of . baloney , its who will run us into the ground first . Just for the hell of it . Try looking at these politicos through the looking glass , its about CONTROL nothing else

  • paulrph1

    NBC should have never been in control of the debate. Never, never, never.

  • Jack C Newkirk

    I think it is about time to end the circus. The CNBC debate was turned into a joke by the questions and the moderators. The American people are the losers. The only good thing from the debate is that it united the candidates as Republicans against the Liberal media. I think the RNC should follow Dr. Carson’s lead on how to conduct the remaining debates.

    • BOC

      It was a joke from the beginning. First and foremost, GOP Chairman Reince Priebus is running a circus act instead of vetting the candidate pool down to two individuals. When’s the last time you have seen such shenanigans. I mean, besides the House of Representatives?

      • john jones

        not like the democratic circus where you have just 2 dummies we have a mixture of educated informed candidates.

  • I Seigel

    But what about Carson’s endorsement of a company that sells bogus dietary supplements? Mannatech. Does he just get a free pass because no one likes the question?

    • gavinwca

      He said he only gave two speech there, no support, if that was not good enough for you show som evidence he supports them other than they put his picture on their web sight. It the liberal reporters job to produce proof. If he is not telling the truth.

      • Sue Johnson

        They used his photograph without his permission.

        The Wall Street Journal is owned by Rupert (Fox News) Murdoch, not a particularly liberal newspaper. Here is one of 2 stories they printed in early October, 2015. I can produce a few other sources, if you wish.

            So you’re saying Fox News is full of lies? And the conservative Wall Street Journal, too?
            And you know the difference between a lie and the truth… how? Are you like George W? Can you look into a man’s eyes and see his soul and tell if he’s lying or not? If so, you should go to Vegas and play poker for big $$$.

    • podunk1

      Why would anyone want to change the circus from a RINO chicken fight to a mighty lion act. The candidates decimated and humiliated the progressive idiot moderators! Was any patriot disappointed?

      If one can’t smell a rat – look again… The biggest loser was the RINO/democrat war against any candidate who respects the Constitution, freedom, and US sovereignty!. RINO enemy number one (Cruz) came out on top. RINO star (Bush) fell off the swing, kersplat in elephant dung,

      • BOC

        Too many candidates and very little unity. How could anyone elect a leader out of this chaos. Clean-up your own house before professing you can clean others.

        • podunk1

          No individual will change the treasonous lawless betrayal of the USA! Everyone knows that! In a just society, truth will stop it by due process or violent enforcement if necessary, just as surely as sowing the seeds of doing nothing will doom society to hell on earth, as bad or worse than the Mid-east & Africa! It’s natural law! God told us how to avoid penalties of damnation. It’s very simple, do the crime & you pass the judgment and punish on yourself just like suicide.

          Truth is, every US official, judge, and all reporting to them are unconditionally fiduciary oath bound to support and defend the Constitution, country, and citizens within alike, wherein the Constitution is supreme law of the land, and no individual power to change anything about that written English language covenant! (1st & 2nd oath and Article 6, etc.)! It’s thus enforceable in every court in the land… READ IT! Judicial precedence to the contrary is no only “notwithstanding” (1 word – Article 6), it’s treason that automatically requires due process as commanded in Article 1 Section 3.

          Fact is, the US is bankrupted by lawlessness and almost 39 million people are denied mere full 40 hour time jobs that will generate $2.6 trillion NEW TAXABLE CITIZEN PRODUCTIVE WEALTH, as noted above!!! Remove the Aliens and retrieve the free competitive strategic productive US infrastructure and skills gutted by monopolist traitors over the past 25 years!

          The bottom line issue is the words oath/duty and treason, a clear choice with consequences as awesome as the number of citizen lives violated!

        Nothing will save the USA except patriots who will make sure the Constitution and law in accordance with it is enforced! That absolutely terrorizes RINO traitors! RINO treason is boiling over in the T-Pot of patriotism. When the pot boils-out RINOS will be in captivity or fertilizing the rice fields of Maoist history. He who steals to feed the dragon, will be dragon food when there is nothing left to steal (communism 101).

            Liberalism is a mental disorder. You need to investigate communism under both Stalin and Mao… very violent killers & tyrants… nothing like the non-violent T-Partiers who fight tyranny and those overthrowing the Constitution that guarantees individual freedom.

  • don

    why now? its been this way–the media has not just now done their work dirty

    • VM Sheppard

      You’re right, Don. But, the debates are special events where the Convention organizer controls the locations and media coverage of the programs. Where as they can’t control the content of the debate itself, they can choose where to spend their money. This gives them a bit more leverage than a normal news story. I’m so glad to see them exercising the power of the purse! We should all be doing that…
