Boycott of CNN & NBC = Bad Idea | To Make CNN & NBC Strike Out is Much Better!

The GOP’s decision to boycott CNN and NBC over the Hillary programming (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/08/16/republican-party-officials-to-vote-on-whether-to-boycott-cnn-nbc-over-clinton/) is a very poor decision in my opinion.

The liberal media will spin it in such a way that it adds to the already negative perception that low information voters have of the GOP.

Instead of boycotting CNN and NBC, the GOP should have opted to control the pre-primary debates by choosing the venue, and a moderator that is not affiliated with any of the networks, then telling the networks they can all come and “air the debate”, but they will just function as cameramen with video recorders and microphones. They won’t actually have a part in shaping or moderating the debate.

The GOP should also use this same method for the general election debates where it will only debate if it and the DNC agree on a venue and agree on a truly non-partisan moderator that is not affiliated with any of the networks, then tell the networks they can all come and “air the debate”, but they will just function as cameramen with video recorders and microphones. They won’t actually have a part in shaping or moderating the debate.
