NBC is preparing a Hillary Mini-Series.
While we don’t know the content, it’s predicted that it will be favorable to her.
The RNC is protesting, sending a letter (embedded below) to NBC threatening no cooperation with NBC as to 2016 presidential debates:
I’m writing to you to express my deep disappointment in your company’s decision to air a miniseries promoting former Secretary Hillary Clinton ahead of her likely candidacy for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016.
As an American company, you have every right to air programming of your choice. But as American citizens, certainly you recognize why many are astounded at your actions, which appear to be a major network’s thinly-veiled attempt at putting a thumb on the scales of the 2016 presidential election….
There’s ample cause for concern. Executives and employees of Com cast, NBC’s parent company have been generous supporters of Democrats and Secretary Clinton. David Cohen, Comcast’s EVP, raised over $1.4 million for President Obama’s reelection efforts and hosted a fundraiser for the president. Comcast Corp. employees have donated $522,996 to the president and donated $161,640 to Secretary
Clinton’s previous campaigns….
Out of a sense of fairness and decency and in the interest of the political process and your company’s reputation, I call on you to cancel this political ad masquerading as an unbiased production. If you have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote of the RNC stating that the committee will neither partner with you in
2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates which you sponsor.
The RNC also has started a petition drive aimed at liberal media pro-Hillary bias:
Already the “waaahs” have started:

Bigger threat would be that Crossroads won't air ads on NBC/CNN in retaliation for Hillary flicks #notgonnahappen
