Here’s the complete explanation from Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus for why the GOP suspended presidential debates on NBC.
Sounds to me that he has good reasons after the unprofessional and daffy questions that the CNBC panel put to the Republican presidential candidates during this week’s debate. For example:
CNBC billed the debate as one that would focus on “the key issues that matter to all voters—job growth, taxes, technology, retirement and the health of our national economy.” That was not the case. Before the debate, the candidates were promised an opening question on economic or financial matters. That was not the case. Candidates were promised that speaking time would be carefully monitored to ensure fairness. That was not the case. Questions were inaccurate or downright offensive. The first question directed to one of our candidates asked if he was running a comic book version of a presidential campaign, hardly in the spirit of how the debate was billed.
A pathetic performance by CNBC.
