re: RNC threatens to shut out NBC and CNN

I'd like to say that the Republicans' lack of backbone has to do with being old-fashioned and trying to take the high road (if that's possible), but in the end I think it's because the party is old and weak. The Democratic ground game is a professional juggernaut and the Republicans don't even know how to play.

Yep.

And the dems are light years ahead in the PR game and know how to manipulate public perception. It also helps when they have a media helping them out.

GOP needs new blood and hopefully people like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are the start of a catalyst to bring in new people that have fresh takes on policy and makes the GOP embrace small gov't and being consistent in the ideology.

After the Candy Crowley set up they'd be justified in telling those biased hacks to take a flying leap.



They should have boycotted after the election because of the Candy Crowley incident.

I still can't get over that stunt that she pulled in the 2nd debate. She should've been fired for that, the dems calling her out on it and never allowed to moderate another debate ever again.

I think it did a lot of damage to Romney and was one of many factors that he lost steam after the first debate.

That cuntry bitch needs to be tarred and feathered for what she did. The media does all it can to help the dems from the Rather fabricated report to this and the very words used in reporting of conservatives and Republicans. Everything is extreme, far right, radical when describing Republicans but with dems it is just democrat or democratic.

Yay! More polarisation. All the more reason to go third party.

The fact Crowley hosts one of the Sunday shows is fricking ridiculous. The GOP should boycott all that garbage

Actually this is one instance where I fully support the GOP. They have good reasoning for it and it's sound.

We did this in the third grade. All the boys got together and swore we wouldn't talk to the girls for a month.

Congrats to the GOP.

Not really. But, assuming they have a meaningful legit gripe, if they were to actually pull this shite (they won't . . . even they aren't that stupid) it would only make them look ridiculous in the eyes of the general electorate.

Did you have the same opinion when the vile democrats did the same thing a few years back?

The general electorate who doesn't already favor one side or another will never notice. I don't give us that much credit.

The only people who notice, or care, are those who take an interest in politics and are already on one side of the aisle.

Just because I said they have sound reasoning for it doesn't mean I said it's going to work out for them in the PR game which the dems are masters at, which works for people like you BTW.

Have good reasons for it in a logical sense and reasons for it an pragmatic/practical sense are two very different things.

You don't think their gripe is legitimate? Two major news networks are basically campaigning for Hillary Clinton by producing these shows. Seems like a legitimate gripe to me.

Faulty logic. The shows will try to make them ridiculous either way. Why allow it?

Yep.

There was a thread about this on the Movie / TV board and me and other people were calling it what exactly it was and VOR basically tried to argue otherwise and got a little upset. When a show's political slant is so obvious, people are going to react to it and they should.

If a studio doesn't want to face accusations of political bias and campaigning for a political candidate, don't produce these shows.

Upset? Not really. I just continue to be amazed at the predictable gripes about the "mainstream media" and "left wing Hollywood agenda" that has such influence over the masses . . . who, by the way, clearly aren't as perceptive and wise as this board must be. I absolutely assure you guys that I am serene when it comes to this silliness.

BTW, I don't even remember much about the thread(s).

I promise you that I hope the RNC tries to make this move. It will be epic and fun to watch no matter which way it goes.
