Priebus: Hiring Alec Baldwin proves there is no difference in NBC’s divisions

In proclaiming “we’re done putting up with this nonsense,” Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, fell back on Alec Baldwin to drive home the point that the GOP will not stand for “obvious bias” from NBC and CNN.

His comments center around plans by the networks to move forward with film projects about Hillary Clinton — the likely Democratic candidate in the 2016 presidential election.

“We say to the media with a united voice,” Priebus declared at a RNC meeting Friday, “that a network that spends millions of dollars to spotlight Hillary Clinton, is a network with an obvious bias. And that’s a network that won’t be hosting a single, Republican primary debate.”

Hollywood blowhard Alec Baldwin, and soon to be MSNBC prime-time host as rumors suggest, responded to the boycott by asking, “If the RNC only lets Fox in, how will they tell the candidates from the reporters?”

Priebus’ response was that Baldwin serves as clear evidence that NBC’s news and entertainment divisions are not as separate as some like to claim.

“The networks can talk all they want about the lines between their divisions,” Priebus said. “But the same week that people at NBC promised that NBC News was different than NBC entertainment are separate — that very same week they made that argument, they announced that they are giving a prime-time MSNBC slot to Alec Baldwin.”
