Thanks Carl let's bring in the chairman of the Republican National Committee -- run its previous he joins us from Wisconsin mr.
chairman thanks for being here.
Thanks Brett had to be what do you think -- is getting accomplished here and you think you're having success.
Yeah I think well first of all we're showing I think at least some of the folks in the media that we're not gonna have a party here that just sits around.
And get slapped around and acts like nothing's wrong I actually think that.
We've got a big problem at CNN and NBC think.
That they're going to put together promotional movies and miniseries.
Promoting Hillary Clinton.
And that the Republican Party is just gonna go along and get along and I just want them -- -- before they move on too far along the project.
That if they continue to move along and actually.
With these -- -- that the Republican National Committee is not going to partner with them when it comes at picking a nominee.
For our party in 2016 and I think it's a pretty reasonable place for me to be Brett.
We just heard in Karl's piece some statements from some at NBC particularly about.
The decision making process there do you think either NBC or CNN are going to back down about these movies.
Well look you know -- they're -- they're trying to make the case that.
Then there entertainment division isn't the news division so this isn't fair the fact is it's a distinction without a difference.
Mean just the other day NBC news was tweeting about Barack Obama.
Being on the and Jay Leno well.
United doesn't stop them there Brian Williams is on the same channel as Jay Leno and Sunday Night Football the fact is the parent company's.
Are choosing to promote Hillary Clinton when they know darn well.
That she's getting ready to run for president and you know what there's going to be plenty of time.
For these news companies to do all the movies and documentaries about Hillary Clinton.
If she does that Iran if she does around and loses does a run and wins.
We'll have a long time for these movies -- there's no reason for them to do it now other than to build them up and the cult of personality of Hillary Clinton.
We heard this discussion this morning and you were on MSNBC.
And you said this at the end of that discussion.
I have to choose your moderator -- that our.
Actually interest did in the Republican Party in art and our nominee is -- advantage is that it's not it's not going to be NBC if they continue to go forward with this miniseries.
The chairman said you have to choose moderated -- you really believe that you're going to choose the moderator is an all these debates and.
No I think that collectively of the Republican Party as a whole the Republican National Committee has a responsibility.
To get control over this debate calendar.
The debate partners the moderator is I think that we need to have a say in who these folks are clicked in my point is this.
I am I'm not gonna sit around and allow our nominees to be deposed by people.
That are in the business of purposely trying to make news of slicing and -- our candidates to making news at our expense of the party.
And at the expense of our candidates I think it's malpractice.
I think -- base has had it with this.
And if anything -- I'll tell you the base of our party.
Another happy that we are taking a stand on this.
But if there's any criticism of the party command base is the fact that we haven't done as soon enough equipment that's the truth and that's where were -- We were criticized as Fox News for some pretty tough questioning in the Republican primary you're not looking to get out of having candidates answer tough questions are -- Of course not.
Of course not but what what I'm not interested in -- Is.
-- our -- promoting companies that are in the business of promoting our opponent -- minutes one thing that tough questions.
It's one thing to have -- did debate moderator is that are gonna dish it out and make things tough that's okay that's not the point.
But but then to say.
They were going to have companies that are producing.
The debates that ultimately have a big say in choosing our nominees that are now spending millions of dollars and promoting Hillary Clinton two years before an election.
I think it's ridiculous and I think it's about time that our party stands up and says look you want to move along that road you go ahead and do it but you're gonna do without us and so.
I think that this is a stand that we have to take.
Hopefully somebody can answer the phone there at the newsroom last thing you do you sick.
That's who they are going to back down because of this stand that you've made.
No I don't think they're gonna back down I mean they may may try to do something where they put it on a different cable channel or something like that.
But I don't expect them to back down and I don't expect the RNC -- back down either expect them to move forward and we will move forward and we will cut them out.
The chairman of the Republican National Committee -- -- this thank you very much for your time.
