and that's one reason the RNC has threatened to prevent CNN and NBC from carrying the 2016 GOP presidential debates. Priebus didn't grasp that the real problem with the GOP is its candidates, not the media, despite openly admitting it yesterday:

Mitt Romney's use of the term "self-deportation" to describe an element of his immigration policy was "horrific," Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said on Friday.

Romney suggested at a GOP primary debate in January 2012 the U.S. should push undocumented immigrants to return to their home countries by making it impossible for them to find a job in America. And that, Priebus told reporters on Friday, was a big mistake.
"Using the word 'self-deportation' - I mean, it's a horrific comment to make," the chairman told reporters at the RNC's annual meeting in Boston, according to an audio recording from Business Insider. "It's not something that has anything to do with our party. But when a candidate makes those comments, obviously it hurts us."
UPDATE: Russell Moore, the incoming president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, also found Romney's comment unacceptable:"Mr. Moore notes the importance of keeping families together and says that "self-deportation is not a solution."

Clinton is a neolib so the Democrat Party has about as many problems with its candidate(s.)
