Bossie: RNC might cut out networks if primary debates aren't reformed

Source: Politico

The Republican National Committee would consider circumventing major television networks if the presidential debate process is not overhauled, Citizens United President David Bossie said Friday.

“We don't need to count on just the networks,” Bossie told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. “There are so many opportunities out there, so many platforms out there that we can go to and partner with to get the message out.”

Bossie was light on the details about what GOP debates without a partner network would look like, noting that the RNC is still early in its process for 2024 debate planning. Officials from both political parties exert more control over how their respective primary debates are structured, something that Bossie — who is helping to lead the RNC reform effort — said his party is actively exploring.

Both political parties have historically partnered with news networks to stage primary debates, as opposed to general election debates which are put on by the Commission on Presidential Debates, which has overseen those forums since 1988. Bossie, in his interview with Hewitt, said that Republicans have been especially dismayed by what he characterized as grandstanding moderators.

Hey dumbass. You're not going to win much of anything without a few independents voting GOP. If debates are not broadcast fewer people are going to vote for your party. But hey don't let me stop you.

3. Lol

The point of these debates used to be to get your candidates on the biggest possible stage so that the broadest possible audience can see how great your ideas are.

Funny how the RNC is now, "Er, let's not do that."

This way, they can have their "Trump is God/Evolution is a hoax/Jewish space lasers/Vaccines make you magnetic" debate and just target it directly at the nutjobs on social media, without having to embarrass themselves on a national stage. (It won't work of course, since the news networks will simply show greatest hits clips from the debates after they air.)

This takes their primary off screen, and obscuring even a part of the early infighting and crazy stuff that will be said there is good for the Qop.

that makes sense.

Someone seems to have a fundamental misunderstanding of what "debate" means.

23. Everyone knows the Republican primaries will be shit shows

...what with the conflict between the traditional corporatists (who still control most of the money) and the Trump crazies (who can numerically outvote the corporatists in a primary). The last thing either side wants is a messy public spectacle that's largely controlled by an entity they have no control over. Both sides probably hope to influence the format of the debates to their advantage, and a likely outcome is that they won't come to an agreement and there won't be any Republican primary debates.

24. It was the RNC primary format that allowed Trump to insult his way to the White House.

If it hadn't been for that format, his hateful, no substance message would never have gotten ingrained in the minds of half the population.

29. What would be the point of citizens listening to autocrats?

Autocrats gonna do what they're gonna do. They won't listen to citizens, voters, journalists, scientists, historians, logic, or reason.

The GOP has sown the seeds of its own destruction. They have announced a destination and everyone knows it.

42. This is just stupid.

But, I don't need a debate to tell me I ain't never, ever gonna vote for a Repub for anything. Ever.

I remember Joe telling Orange Man to shut up, because tRumpy kept interrupting with nasty comments. Is that the structure they want, something that allows Trump to control what is said? Good luck with that. I think that most everybody would be okay with Trump staying home. We would only be watching to see if he put his pants on backwards, anyway.

If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen. If you have no platform (that's probably what's wrong here) and can't say something intelligent, better seek reform so you don't have to worry about it, as we see here. What losers!
