#1 The networks will scream that the RNC is violating their 1st amendment rights. Preibus says explicitly that they have a right to broadcast it. The RNC has the right to take their business elsewhere.

#2 Frankly, I'd pull the partnership anyway and find more neutral venues.

#3 After Candy Crowley's performance during the last debates, it should not even be an issue for discussion.

#4 The issue is 'in kind' campaign support. The cost of the programs and air time has to count against the corporations as just plain money. Fairness Doctrine would require the networks to provide equal time in similar time spots to the other party(ies) to air their material.

It would probably be more effective to start making noise to the effect to close the deficit that the Stupid Party consider new 'levies' as in the concept that while corporations pay taxes those who log, mine, or drill on federal land also have to pay royalties to do so. It's long past that those who profit from using the public air waves do the same. Make it 'progressive' based upon size of coverage.

#5 Shouldn't the IRS be looking into CNN's political activity?

#6 Shouldn't the IRS be looking into CNN's political activity?

No. And that's the point. It has to end, the overlarge government with the power to take away everything you have because a bureaucrat has been offended.

#7 badanov is exactly right - I don't want the government involved. This is business to business.

#8 If the tea party riots after watching the Hillary movie will the Obama administration arrest the CNN producer?

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
