RNC accuses NBC and CNN of boosting Hillary, threatens to nix debates

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Monday called on CNN and NBC to rethink their decisions to shoot films about Hillary Clinton, calling each a "thinly veiled attempt at putting a thumb on the scales of the 2016 presidential election."

Priebus also threatened, if the networks push forward with their plans, to avoid partnerships with them for any 2016 presidential debates.
