“REPUBLICAN” CHAIRMAN ANGRY OVER “PETTY AND MEAN-SPIRITED” DEBATE QUESTIONS

The “Republican” party has declared war on NBC in the aftermath of this week’s GOP presidential debate – suspending its partnership with the network and threatening to exclude it from a scheduled February debate in Houston, Texas.

In a letter sent from Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), to NBC News chairman Andrew Lack – the network’s handling of this week’s presidential debate on CNBC was “conducted in bad faith.”

“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,” Priebus wrote. “What took place Wednesday night was not an attempt to give the American people a greater understanding of our candidates’ policies and ideas.”

“Questions were inaccurate or downright offensive,” he added.

Interesting …

Wait … where was Priebus when Fox News declared war on GOP frontrunner Donald Trump?

Oh right … the GOP doesn’t care if the media attacks Trump.  In fact it has enthusiastically joined them in that effort.
