Reince Priebus, RNC Chairman slammed both networks for spending millions of dollars telling the story of someone who is very likely going to run for president in 2016. He accused CNN and NBC of “being in the business of promoting the Democratic party,” saying he’s tired of working with people “spending time and money” backing the Democrats.
He considered it a “very reasonable” proposal that the Republican party would want to “filter who actually deposes our candidate,” acknowledging that in 2012, there were too many debates that the GOP should have exerted more control over, as well as “moderators who are in the business of making news at the expense of our candidates.”

The presidential debates were terrible. Liberals should never have been allowed to control the situation and provide the moderators. #Reince
