RNC Calls for MSNBC Boycott

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is launching a boycott of MSNBC over an incendiary tweet from the network that suggested “the rightwing” would “hate” a television ad featuring a biracial family, Breitbart News has learned.

“Until you personally and publicly apologize for this behavior, I have banned all RNC staff from appearing on, associating with, or booking any RNC surrogates on MSNBC. I have asked Republican surrogates and officials to follow our lead,” Priebus told MSNBC President Phil Griffin in a letter sent today.

Priebus also sent a memo to Republican officials and surrogates urging them not to appear on the network until Griffin apologizes.

MSNBC’s tweet, sent from the network’s official account last night at 8:06pm, said, “Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go aww” and linked to a Cherios ad “w/ biracial family.”

I’m pretty ambivalent about this.  Sure, boycott them.  They almost never ask real conservatives on their network, anyway.  Usually, it’s an establishment Repub, so it’s about conversation between Dems and Dem lite.  But, on the rare occasion they actually ask someone with an opposing view, it’s worth the watch because the conservative nearly always hands the MSNBC people their azzes.  So, there’s a tradeoff. 

Look, MSNBC is on their way to obscurity.  NBC, itself, is a little further behind, but, moving in that direction, anyway.  But, will, the narcissistic politicians be able to resist the temptation of seeing themselves on TV?  I doubt it.

    My question is…why would the idiot want to draw attention to them

    now their ratings will jump up…because 5 republicans will turn in to see if they can catch any dirt

    Not go on their TV shows? Pffft…yeah, that’ll get ’em. They want us out of ‘their’ states.

    But Reince is only banning establishment repubs! That is who the RNC is.

    Actually it is pretty good tactic since then the lefty media organ enters a closed loop of self congratulatory fluff, having been denied any meat to fill their crappy pies.

    The Oz Federal Government has been doing this for a few months by denying the lefty media any juicy information about the illegal immigration policy the LNP was elected for. The policy has completely stopped waterborn illegal immigration for over a month, which has outraged the Oz ABC and Fairfax newspapers and the Guardian Australia. They have been forced to find nuggets out of slim pickings elsewhere, and last week they shot themselves in the foot with some outrageous unconfirmed and unjustified claims. PM Abbott has now announced a review of public funding of the ABC after they did this…since they gave him enough political capital for it.

    I have no problem with private media groups spouting whatever propaganda they like so long as my taxes don’t pay for it. That is the problem with the ABC. MSNBC on the other hand can say what they like, but why should the GOP go on their shows only for their words to be spun and used mendaciously. Don’t give them anything and they will disappear up their own echo chambers – and go the same way as the Global Mail did yesterday.

    Boycott a television network? Are they serious? They’re just as nutty as the DNC. Aside from different flavors of rhetoric, I don’t see much difference between the Repubs and Dems.
