It's these networks who are glorifying, or tearing down people of their choice.

If they want Hillary, it's who we'll get.

People can't think for themselves. It didn't matter what Obama has, or hasn't done. That's who the media press wanted, and got.

Yes republicans are just victims we get it.

This will hurt the GOP in the long run... boycotting venues that effectively reduce your reach to audiences doesn't really make sense.

republicans promote the notion of competition yet have decided to take their ball and go home.

The republican party's isolation from news sources other than fox was problematic during the 2012 campaign.

The fact that fox news types like dick morris and karl rove, among others continued to promote the supposed inevitable Romney win, as well as the fact that fox viewers were completely blindsided (not to mention the Romney family), by the results, is one example of what can happen when your news source is limited to an echo chamber.

To repeat the same mistake of 2012 and then expect a different result is...well...crazy.

who should they get to play slick willy? How about Ron Jeremy

there you go,
yep, they are isolating themselves from ABC and CBS - NOT!

they do promote FAIR competition, which is NOT what they get from the National Barack Channel or CNN

Even the National Barack Channel's "news' division objected to the "entertainment" division's plans to glorify hillary - I guess you didn't bother to read that in your hurry to attack repubs

Baron,
what you say about venues is correct, that is why the Most Solidly National Barack Channel has such poor ratings - they have made themselves irrelevant.

Not to worry!
There are several reliable and extremely entertaining programs historically known to share the key comments and issues, and elements the Republican candidates want voters to know! Bits and pieces of the debates are delivered to us viewers as if we were right in the audience.
Hosts and guests on the above these very popular programs, watched by millions, have always done their very best to be sure the message of all political candidates is fully delivered and understood.
John Stewart, Steven Colbert, and the talented members of the SNL team will never let us down.

"John Stewart, Steven Colbert, and the talented members of the SNL team will never let us down."

LOL!

I wish I could give your message 2 or 3 "like" votes.

This is JUST what the Repubs need -- all their PR coming through The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. I'm sure it will be more accurate than Faux News, too!

Not sure why anyone would complain about the GOP making this move, after all, CNN NBC CBS ABC .... are all pretty interchangeable. They are just copycat recreations of each other, and do their best to promote the DNC as much as possible. Take one or two of them away, and nothing changes, nothing lost. The 23 people who watch each of these networks, can just change the channel to another DNC network....plenty to choose from.
