Who knows, if the GOP had a viable candidate, they might get a movie also. But, apparently they don’t.
Making news is the subject of timely deeds and accomplishments. Making movies about people is about their making news. Hillary is news.
There are many interesting aspects in this story by The Hill.
One of them is that the RNC wants to have media personalities Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh as moderators for the debates. That would be in contrast with people like Wolf Blitzer, Candy Crowley, Jim Lehrer, and Gwen Ifill.
Let’s examine the resumes of Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh.
Sean Hannity is a dropout who talks a lot.
“ He grew up in Franklin Square, New York, and attended Sacred Heart Seminary in Hempstead, New York, during his middle school years and St. Pius X Preparatory Seminary high school in Uniondale, New York. Hannity dropped out of New York University and Adelphi University”
“Since he was 16, Limbaugh has worked a series of disc jockey jobs.
He enrolled in Southeast Missouri State University but left the school after two semesters and one summer. According to his mother, ‘he flunked everything’, and ‘he just didn't seem interested in anything except radio.’”
Just great to see the standards established by the Republican for their spokespersons.
By comparison, consider Wolf Blitzer’s resume.
“...received a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University at Buffalo in 1970. While there, he was a brother of Alpha Epsilon Pi. In 1972, he received a Master of Arts in international relations from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. While at Johns Hopkins, Blitzer studied abroad at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he learned Hebrew.”
“She graduated in 1977 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts.”
“She attended Principia College in Elsah, Illinois for two years before transferring to Randolph-Macon Woman's College in Lynchburg, Virginia, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.”
“He also graduated with A.A. from Victoria College in Texas and with B.J. from the Missouri School of Journalism at the University of Missouri in 1956. Lehrer joined the United States Marine Corps and attributes his service and travels with helping him to look past himself and feel a connection to the world that he would not have otherwise experienced.”
“GOP votes to ban NBC, CNN from debates
By Jonathan Easley - 08/16/13 11:24 AM ET
The Republican National Committee (RNC) voted unanimously Friday to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for the 2016 GOP presidential primary debates unless the networks kill their planned films on Hillary Clinton.
“We don't have time for the media's games,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said before the vote at the RNC summer meeting in Boston. “We’re done putting up with this nonsense. There are plenty of other news outlets.”
The RNC is looking to exert more influence over the debate process. In 2011 and 2012, the GOP candidates endured more than 20 debates, which some have said resulted in the party emerging from the primaries weakened by infighting and embarrassing nationally televised incidents.
This week, the Washington Examiner reported that the RNC is considering some high-profile conservative media personalities, like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, as potential debate moderators.
