Purveyor of Truth
Oh my. It appears the tough bad a*ses of the Tea Party/GOP are feeling the heat and they don't like it much. Life is tough, so get used to it and get over it.
The Hill- The Republican National Committee has pulled out of a planned Feb. 26 debate with NBC News after widespread criticism of this week's CNBC debate from both the party and campaigns.
But some say the RNC's action may be too late to satisfy candidates who were upset with the questions asked by CNBC moderators on Wednesday night.
"We are suspending the partnership with NBC News for the Republican primary debate at the University of Houston on February 26, 2016," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus wrote in a letter to NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack.
"CNBC network is one of your media properties, and its handling of the debate was conducted in bad faith," Priebus wrote.
"I have tremendous respect for the First Amendment and freedom of the press. However, I also expect the media to host a substantive debate on consequential issues important to Americans. CNBC did not."
He went on to pan CNBC for "inaccurate or downright offensive" questions, specifically singling out a question to Donald Trump, who was asked whether he was running a "comic book" version of a presidential campaign.
"While debates are meant to include tough questions and contrast candidates’ visions and policies for the future of America, CNBC’s moderators engaged in a series of 'gotcha' questions, petty and mean-spirited in tone, and designed to embarrass our candidates," he said.
"What took place Wednesday night was not an attempt to give the American people a greater understanding of our candidates’ policies and ideas."
Or... Whine and pull out of future debates with networks you can't control. And they are. Soooo typical.
