Fox News reports:
The Republican National Committee [RNC] has voted to boycott any presidential primary debates planned by CNN and NBC if they proceed with lengthy television features on Hillary Clinton, widely expected to be a 2016 Democratic candidate.
With no audible dissent, GOP officials approved a resolution backing the position at their annual summer meeting in Boston on Friday.
The RNC claims that a Clinton-themed documentary and a separate miniseries -- in the works from CNN and NBC, respectively -- will put a "thumb on the scales" in the upcoming 2016 presidential election.
"Before the vote, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus decried what he called the 'obvious bias' of a network that would spotlight Clinton in this fashion," Fox reports.
"We're done putting up with this nonsense. There are plenty of other outlets. We'll still reach voters, maybe more voters. But CNN and NBC anchors will just have to watch on their competitors' networks," Priebus is quoted as saying. "The media overplayed their hand this time."
