The Right’s whining about the media’s supposed pro-Clinton bias has only just begun. It will continue to rise over the next three years, and reach a crescendo when their candidate is crushed in November ‘16, because of course conservatism cannot fail, it can only be vilely murdered by evil liberals.

In other words, Reince will cry at any other portrayal of Mrs. Clinton that doesn’t portray her as a power hungry bitch.

My memory may be failing me, but hasn’t FoxNews done exactly this sort of biographical film on their heroes of the far right on more than one occasion, and broadcast them during election cycles?

Not to mention Rep. Louie GOHMERT!, a sitting Congressman, guest-hosting Sean Hannity’s nationally-syndicated radio show, one of the most stridently partisan programs on the “conservative” side, just in the past few days.

Hey! We only play games we can win. Competition is for idiots.

This reminds me of a joke…

Saint Peter and the Devil are talking with each other and the Devil proposes a baseball game between Heaven and Hell. When they are about to leave, Saint Peter tells the Devil, “I feel for you, we have all the greatest players in Heaven: Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle…”

The Devil replies, “Don’t worry. We got the referees.”

The RNC knows they don’t have the talent to elevate to the Democrat’s level, so they want the referees to knock some wind off them.

re: #1 aagcobb

Some in the list seems like typical conservative whining (1, 2, 3, 5 and 16), some are logical extensions of the current trends (4, 6, 8, 9, 12 and 13).

As for 7, I doubt she’ll have a painless primary. 10 and 11 are both toss ups and could easily backfire on Hillary. There’s a reason Bill Clinton took a backseat on the Senate campaign. About 14 is something we don’t know yet how she’ll campaign, but I have little doubt whoever emerges from both primaries will try that line.

15 is interesting, and would be logical. But, the RNC constituency tends to vote against their best interests repetitively. So I don’t see why insulting Hillary’s old age will affect them.

Fox does more than that. It preps them for office by giving them a media platform, then sends them on their way.

The latest example? Liz Cheney.

This shows me how afraid Priebus and other republican politicians are of Hillary Clinton. She hasn’t even declared her candidacy yet, and they’re screaming bloody murder about two documentaries/biopics.

Priebus is a sad joke because he reveals all of the weaknesses in the GOP’s potential slate of 2016 candidates by saying:
“I think it’s just about time that our party stands up and protects the party and our candidates from networks that are not in the business of promoting our party,” Priebus said to Hannity. “They’re not in the business of promoting our candidates. They’re not in the business of doing anything but promoting the Democratic party, and I’m not gonna sit around and watch this happen anymore.”

What Priebus wants is for the other networks to follow the Fox News pattern of worshiping at the feet of republicans. I’d like to ask him when has it ever been the job of a network to promote a particular political party or party’s candidates? Priebus seems to think that if the GOP and its’ candidates receive a lot of media exposure, it will help them win control of the WH and both houses of Congress in 2016. I guess he ignored what happened last year when Romney received a lot of media attention. I think most Americans are turned off when they hear GOPer politicians talk about cutting social programs that negatively impact them while refusing to cut subsidies to energy companies, wealthy farmers, and Big Business. I have to give it to Priebus, he portrays a fake victim very well.

Since Fox News was created. Even in the early days, when they still pretended they were “Fair and Balanced”, the only show with a token liberal was structured such that Republicans were only “interviewed” by Hannity, while Democrats only talked to Colmes.

It’s been going on so long now that Republicans believe it’s their right to demand favorable coverage or they just won’t play.
