RNC Rethuglicans versus CNN & NBC

The Republican National Committee voted on Friday to refuse to partner with CNN or NBC on 2016 GOP primary debates if those networks move ahead with planned films about Hillary Clinton - projects that the RNC described as "little more than extended commercials" promoting the former secretary of state's potential presidential candidacy.

The resolution, which passed unanimously during the RNC's summer meeting in Boston, marked the culmination of weeks of threats from party chairman Reince Priebus, who wrote a letter to NBC and CNN earlier this month deriding the planned films as a "thinly veiled attempt at putting a thumb on the scale of the 2016 presidential election."
