Break out the waaambulance! RNC Chair Reince Priebus is terribly upset with NBC and CNN for their upcoming television projects on the life of Hillary Clinton. Priebus took to the airways with Fox's Sean Hannity this Monday evening to complain about that evil "liberal media" doing their best to conspire against the Republicans, and it looks like they're going to hold their breath and stomp their feet and refuse to allow anyone other than Fox to host Republican presidential primary debates if they don't get their way.
So who else out there thinks this is something they were just looking for an excuse to do anyway, given the disastrous outcome of their last round of presidential primary debates? If you don't work too hard to read between the lines during his interview with Hannity above, Priebus admits that's what is really going on, but what he doesn't admit is that this is just a convenient excuse to justify it. They don't want another train wreck, with ten of them telling the truth about just how far off the rails to the right their party has fallen, and any candidate that might have a chance in hell of winning the nomination being pushed even further to the right during those debates.
About all I can say to Priebus is, good luck with that, pal. Our corporate media is not "liberal" and if there's one thing they care about, it's ratings. Another is access. I don't know what's going to come of this threat by Priebus, but I have a feeling it's not going to end well for either him or his party. I guess we'll find out more soon enough.
