And, the Mainstream Media, (CNBC/NBC), got a rude reality check about who’s running the Republican debates this time around. Hint: It’s not the Media or their corruptive attempt to derail the process.
Not long after CNBC announced that the next GOP debate would be extended to three hours, (and both opening and closing statements would be eliminated), both Donald Trump and fellow front-runner Ben Carson reminded the network giant who was operating the party's debates:
“Donald Trump and Ben Carson are threatening to skip the next Republican presidential debate unless the format is changed.
The campaigns sent a joint letter Thursday afternoon to CNBC's Washington bureau warning they wouldn't participate in the network’s debate on Oct. 28 in Boulder, Colo., unless it lasts no longer than two hours and includes both opening and closing statements by the candidates.”
John Nolte at Breitbart was quick to point out how DC/New York media thought they could manipulate the process:
“Our corrupt Washington DC/New York media again tried to mess with the Republican presidential field.
While every other Republican remained publicly silent, frontrunner Donald Trump got his closest rival, Dr. Ben Carson, to join with him and together they stood up and said, “No.”
This kept Trump in the headlines and at the top of the news cycle throughout yesterday afternoon and this morning. And now we’ve learned that Trump and Carson won. The DC/NY media agreed to the frontrunners’ demands.
Does anyone in the weak-kneed Republican Establishment, or among the bubbled-morons in the Punditocracy, have any more questions about why The Donald appears to be coasting to the Republican nomination for President of the United States? Anyone? “ (emphasis mine)
Mr. Nolte has long been an ardent opponent of the GOPe and the Republican Establishment cronies who, (by their silence), appear to be complicit with the Democrat Party in their attempt at controlling this Presidential race. It has to be a shock to them to find out Mr. Trump has "played this game" too.
Now, if only the GOPe establishment would, (at least), get out of the way of blocking the political process---Constitutionally afforded to all citizens of this nation---instead of participating in the corruption, perhaps then the rest of the media would understand they’re not running the show this time around. There’s a new sheriff in town. And, between him and his deputy, (for now), are calling the shots---not the Liberal Mainstream Media who chooses to bootstrap with the Democrat Party*.
