    Heya Fiddy. While I agree with you on the issue that Republicans should be attacking the Democrats in all the corners they hide out in. (Bring out the Pointed shoes too) There still is CBS and ABC to go along with Fox. As well as Public Television.

    Absolutely correct, but Republicans axed two options, obviously a third (MSNBC), already making one wary about CBS's chances. ABC and Fox would be the only two large options. I love Public Broadcasting, but two things go against it. First, the audience is not massive, in comparison. Second, I think it would be a bit of a PR problem considering the immense perception that the GOP is in favor f completely altering PBS and NPR's model.

    Why would anybody want to listen to politicians debate anyway? What a waste of time. Why does anybody pay attention to what politicians say anywhere? It's just a prevarication contest.

    Well my thought was if they held 6 that's two each. Which still would be 4 with MSMedia and 2 with Fox. The rest would have to be earned the Ole fashion way on the stump.

    So what does this mean? Only fox will air the primary debates, and they aren't cutting any of the debates?

    It will be interesting to see how it turns out for them.

    The Republican National Committee has approved a resolution to block two television networks from hosting GOP presidential primary debates.

    Friday's vote affirms RNC chairman Reince Priebus's (ryns PREE'-bus) threat against CNN and NBC unless the networks drop plans to air programs about possible Democratic presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton. The vote at the committee's summer meeting in Boston was unanimous.....snip~

    That's what I think could happen. They'll give the democrats more opportunity to define their candidates than the candidates defining themselves.

    Or maybe it will work to their advantage.

    DEms should pray for Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity et al since they will opine with their questions. Then, Dems should not wallow in the same liquid manure and not comment. Dems worst nightmare continue to be Christie. Christie/Noot 2016

    This would be your opinion, but the fact is we are talking about primary debates not general election debates. What good would one of these debates be on a leftist network anyway - few people would watch - then they'd say look no one is watching. They can reach all they need without NBC/CNN. Hold a debate on CBS, ABC and FOX. Plenty of diverse populations will enjoy and besides - haven't you seen? MSNBC cuts and clips most of the debates for their airing anways.

    It means NBC and CNN wont be holding any of their Debates. As far as cutting the Debates well we shall see. Even Preibus mentioned having fewer.

    Even before the Clinton dispute, Republican leaders favored plans to have fewer presidential debates with more friendly moderators. They believe their 2012 presidential candidates spent too much time beating up each other in last year's months-long primary season, which contributed to Mitt Romney's loss.....snip~
