Sean Hannity To Interview RNC Chairman Reince Priebus About NBC, CNN Letters

Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity will interview RNC chairman Reince Priebus tonight about the letters he sent to NBC Entertainment and CNN regarding their respective upcoming Hillary Clinton mini-series and feature film.

Update: Priebus also appeared on Bloomberg TV. Watch both interviews here.

Priebus said that unless the companies canceled the plans to air the features, the RNC would recommend that neither NBC News nor CNN host any GOP primary debates during the 2016 Presidential cycle. CNN responded, saying that “limiting their debate participation seems to be the ultimate disservice to voters.”

Meanwhile, on CNN itself, Jake Tapper covered the letters during “The Lead.” He asked Republican CNN contributor Ana Navarro (as well as Democratic strategist Jamal Simmons and the National Journal‘s Ron Brownstein) about the move:

“When the announcement came out, I lifted an eyebrow, it’s not something that I like,” Navarro said. “We had over 20 debates [in 2012] that were frankly cringe inducing and in many republicans’ minds–including my own–very hurtful for the party. I think that it’s important for the RNC to get control of this debate process so we’re not having one every week and they end up being hurtful to the candidates in a difficult process.”

State of the Union Coverage: CNN

CNN is treating tomorrow’s “State of the Union” coverage like an election night, loading up on political anchors and analysts. Coverage will be led by Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo, Jake Tapper, Kate Bolduan and Erin Burnett, who will be overseeing a focus group reacting to the speech. Dana Bash will be in the House Chamber while Jessica Yellin reports from the White House. John King will be on “Magic Wall” duty, with John Berman and Tom Foreman in the “virtual studio” to offer “reality checks” of the President’s remarks, and the Republican response.

On the analysis side, former Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich and former Current TV anchor Jennifer Granholm will provide insider analysis, with Gloria Borger, David Gergen, Cornell Belcher, Donna Brazile, Alex Castellanos, Margaret Hoover, Van Jones and Ana Navarro also weighing in throughout the night.

One person who apparently will not be appearing on CNN’s SOTU coverage is the anchor of CNN’s “State of the Union,” Candy Crowley. Crowley hosted her weekend program from DC yesterday, and previewed the SOTU on “CNN Newsroom” yesterday afternoon.

Update: CNN says that Crowley is out of town, caring for her mother. Hence, she won’t be able to participate in the coverage.
