Priebus on 2016 Debates: "Conservative Media Will Have a Voice"

Hopefully, those of us who watched the 2012 election cycle can all agree on the following points: There were too many Republican debates, too many unfriendly moderators, and too many “gotcha” questions.


To that end, at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus announced he's already taken steps to address voters' understandable concerns.

“The days of the media calling the shots in our primary debates are over,” he said. “You know, in the past, the media got to decide when, where and how many debates there were. Not anymore. At the RNC, we created a new system for a reasonable number of debates.”

“This time we’re going to assist in choosing debate partners and panelists, not the other way around,” he continued. “Conservative media will have a voice in the process. For example, we just announced that Salem Radio—the home of Hugh Hewitt and Bill Bennett—will partner for the debates with CNN. So the field day for the liberal media is over.”

The first GOP presidential debate is officially scheduled for this August.
