RNC Chairman Reince Priebus protests Hillary Clinton documentary

August 6, 2013

The head of the Republican National Committee is demanding that NBC and CNN pull the plug on airing an upcoming documentary and a miniseries on former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton — or risk losing out on the chance to sponsor presidential debates in the 2016 GOP primary election.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus sent letters to Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, and Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide, calling on them to “cancel this political ad masquerading as an unbiased production.”

“If you have not agreed to pull the programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 15, 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,” Mr. Priebus wrote in letters he released Monday.

Mr. Priebus said the programming appears to be a “major network’s thinly-veiled attempt at putting a thumb on the scales of the 2016 presidential election.” In an accompanying news release, he said that it is “appalling” to know that the executives at NBC and CNN have donated to Democrats and “take it upon themselves to be Hillary Clinton’s campaign operatives.”
