Why NBC News?
The Republican National Committee chose NBC News to host the third Republican presidential primary debate in Miami because of course:
Today, the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced that it has selected NBC News, Salem Radio Network, the Republican Jewish Coalition, and Rumble as partners for the third Republican presidential primary debate, which will take place at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County on November 8, 2023. As with the first and second debates, Rumble will be the exclusive RNC livestream provider and the RNC’s exclusive online home for the third debate.
“I am eager to announce that the RNC has selected NBC News, Salem Radio Network, the Republican Jewish Coalition, and Rumble as our partners for the third Republican primary debate in Miami. The partners for our third debate will offer our candidates an excellent opportunity to meet the moment and contrast their plans and vision with the failures of the Biden White House.” – RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel
“NBC News has a long history of fostering conversations with the leaders that seek to shape domestic politics and foreign policy. For us, there is no higher responsibility. We look forward to continuing our leading reporting on the 2024 presidential race and spotlighting the issues that matter most to voters as they head to the polls.” – Rebecca Blumenstein, President of NBC News Editorial
The press release did not include the moderators or the format. We also do not know who will qualify to be on the stage:
To qualify, candidates must have campaign contributions from at least 70,000 unique donors. They must also register at least 4% in two national polls or in one national poll and one early-state poll that meets the RNC’s polling requirements. Qualifying candidates must also pledge to support the eventual GOP nominee.
I bet President Donald Trump won’t be there.
But why choose NBC News? I cannot think of one person at NBC or MSNBC who could act as a neutral and non-partisan moderator.
NBC, which ran the Russia collusion scam, the Kavanaugh rape scam, hid news about the Biden Family Business, and constantly runs anti-GOP propaganda is rewarded by the RNC with a debate. Why not? pic.twitter.com/kKAHM9uOi3

This lady has a great point, though. Does it even matter?
Who is watching these debates? I tried, but they are just high school cafeteria food fights. No thanks. A true debate is a one on one event, not this nonsense. Individual interviews are far superior.
