Reince Priebus: Fox’s Involvement In Hillary Clinton Miniseries Won’t Affect Debate Ban

The fact that Fox Television Studios, a sister company to Fox News under the 21st Century Fox umbrella, is in talks to produce the Hillary Clinton miniseries for NBC hasn’t changed the opinion of RNC chairman Reince Priebus, who is threatening a 2016 debate boycott of CNN and NBC if they don’t cancel their Clinton programs.

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Priebus told Candy Crowley that the fact that FTVS is the likely producer of the miniseries is irrelevant.

“The big question for me is, which company is putting it on the air? Who is doing the work?” Priebus said. “I’m not interested if they are using the same caterer, or they are both drinking Diet Coke, I am not boycotting Diane Lane. I am going to boycott the company that puts the miniseries and the documentaries on the air for the American people to view.”
