The Republic National Committee (RNC) just voted to ban both CNN and NBC from hosting their primary debates in 2016. The GOP voted to restrict the networks from airing the Republican presidential primary debates in retaliation for their agenda to broadcast Hillary Clinton related content. 

On August 5th, the RNC threatened the two networks, insisting that if they both didn't halt plans for shows about Clinton by August 14th, both NBC and CNN would be banned from the presidential primary debates. Well, the deadline passed, and CNN failed to ditch planning for its Hillary Clinton documentary, and NBC refused to backdown on its scheduled miniseries. So, in effect, the RNC voted at the party's Summer Meeting in Boston that both NBC and CNN will be ostracized from the presidential debates in the coming election. Ouch! 

So, what do you think about the RNC's decision? Sound off in the comments section below!
