Republican National Committee pressed to dump NBC from hosting GOP debates

February 16, 2015

A Georgia-based conservative super PAC is calling on the Republican National Committee to dump NBC News from hosting two GOP presidential primary debates, citing anchor Brian Williams‘ suspension for lying about being under fire in Iraq and instances of alleged network bias.

The Conservative War Chest told RNC Chairman Reince Priebus in a letter that Mr. Williams‘ saga “is just a symptom of a deeper rot at NBC News.”

“For years, NBC executives knowingly watched as Williams lied again and again,” wrote CWC spokesman Mike Flynn, who said network executives “have a personal stake in distorting the record against Republicans.”

    A lame excuse, if they were going to use any reason it should be because NBC’s ratings are in the toilet. The real problem with debates are they are not actually debates just an espousal opportunity by candidates in what amounts to sound bites of pick me politicians.
    The key is to get a competent moderator using hard ball questions coming from a knowledgeable informed public sector. Not an easy task given the number of dolts who vote as well as those who don’t.

    The connection between a lying anchorman, “NBC executives who knowingly watched as Williams lied again and again”, and the same executives having a personal stake in distorting the Republicans’ record, is lost on me. How did this PAC come up with that conclusion?

    The Republican debates – and ALL interviews – should be conducted only by FOX and the conservative media outlets, so that no hard or embarrassing questions are asked.

      That conclusion was drawn in the same fashion as occurred in 2004 when it was determined that CBS utilized forged documents in an attempt to throw a presidential election. So you are right…it is really no biggie that Williams has been caught lying (NOT)

      1. I Seigel says:

        The documents were proven to have been provided by conservative operatives for the express purpose of embarrassing CBS.

        1. Mark K says:

          So, you just proved my point…CBS took unvetted documents and rushed them on air in an attempt to throw an election. If they had done due diligence, they would not have been embarrassed, but then the anit-Bush narrative would not have been broadcast! Maybe that why various networks (NBC, CNN, etc) continue to fall in ratings/viewership while Fox news continues to grow

    Those that lay with the snakes, will surely get bitten, the GOP has morphed into a party that sides in with the democratic communists too often, forgetting what Americans have fought and died for, our Freedom.
    Dumbing down to the socialist level, dumping NBC is superfluous, too little, too late, for most of their party members
