re: RNC threatens to shut out NBC and CNN (Posted on 8/5/13 at 7:41 pm to PuntBamaPunt)
On the fence with this one.
I like the move because if they stick with it, it could hurt ratings and hopefully coerce the networks into being less biased.
I don't think the Clinton show should necessarily be canceled...just similar shows about a GOP candidate should also be aired out of fairness. Though these type shows really don't belong on a news network.
I dislike the move because it could affect voters' knowledge of the GOP candidates' stances unless they watch Fox, which could allow the MSM to further spin what a Republican says since you don't have his face on tv saying his exact words.

I like it. Raises awareness. It forces theses two to defend themselves. If they do it viciously, it reinforces the point. If they soften to appear non biased, they lose some effectiveness in their message.
It's also a divide and conquer strategy. Those not shut out will try to remain in the game, and will at least think twice in reporting.
