Quoting from Huffpost:

Two days after a report emerged that Fox Television studios may produce NBC's Hillary Clinton miniseries, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair Reince Priebus dismissed the connection as "totally ridiculous and stupid."

“I don’t know the truth of anything you’re talking about,” Priebus said regarding the Fox links. “But I do know what’s very clear is that the company that puts these things on the air to promote Hillary Clinton, including CNN, is the company that is not going to be involved in our debates.”

Alright, here's the logic in that...

Let's say, you go out and you buy a bottle of tamper-resistant Jiffy Peanut Butter from Ralph's and upon opening said jar of  tamper-resistant Jiffy peanut butter you find... a human finger and a dead cephalopod*.

(*It's a really small cephalopod. Like, y'know, a mini-squid-sorta-thing.)

Anyway, you're PISSED about what happened with the Jiff and the peanut butter and the finger and the very tiny sea animal and so what do you do?

You SUE Jewell, but then I drive right down to the Jiff National Headquarters and give all the executives... even the women folk... blow jobs.

Because your Reince Preibusian take on this is that somehow it is RALPH'S FAULT for selling contaminated peanut butter, but not JIFF'S FAULT for manufacturing the shit.

Dear Mr. Preubus: The company that produces the show #1) picks the writers/directors/cast #2) finances the production and, most importantly of course, #3) has the most to financially gain from the airing of the program.

It is your Fox-N-Friends who are making the peanut butter and its on their dime that the severed didgit and the deceased molluscan class organism got into your sandwitch spread.

But, of course, you KNOW THAT, and you're just looking for a way to stuff your hot pocket of "we're gunna lose another Presidential election" with something that might pass for the "hot sauce of outrage and indignation."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
