    The RNC tells IJReview that they are changing the game: The 2016 Republican primary debates will be driven by conservative journalists rather than representatives from mainstream media outlets, which has been the norm until now.

    The plan is for the RNC to select a committee today that will be confirmed tomorrow by the RNC members, and this committee will be in complete control of all the rules surrounding the debates. They will be responsible for determining the timing, location and media partners for the party’s presidential primaries. They will also create penalties designed to dissuade candidates from participating in non-sanctioned debates.

    In other words, this move from the RNC will prevent someone like ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, a former Democratic political advisor, from singlehandedly beating up Republican candidates with bizarre questions like he did in 2012.


    From RNC Deputy Press Secretary Raffi Williams:

    “The plan is to have conservative journalists on the debate panel so that conservative activists will have a voice in determining who comes out of the Republican primary.”


    As a result, the debates will be run by journalists who represent the views and concerns of conservative voters – not people who are actively working against us.

    Common sense should tell you not to let the enemy pose the questions. Too bad they can't apply those rules to the presidential debates. The MSM moderators are hardly unbiased and fair.

    Especially when we are subjected to Bill Moyers, Gwen Iffel (sp?), Stephanopoulous, etc.

    I would like to see Chris Wallace, and Brit Hume as moderators. Throw in a couple of more moderate Dem supporters to round it out.

    I think the GOP needs to demand a more balanced presidential debate format. 2012 saw one moonbat after another and what Crowley did was out and out unethical. A moderator is supposed to moderate, not stick up for one of the candidates.

    Anyone who thinks they were bullied by the likes of George Stephanopoulis is a pussy.
