RNC to Finally Ditch Establishment Media for Debates

If you tuned in for any of the three GOP primary debates so far, you know that they haven’t exactly been what viewers want to see or hear. Namely, this is because they have been moderated by members of the establishment media who clearly have no connection to the Republican voter base.

Thankfully, that won’t be the case for the fourth debate.

The Republican National Committee just announced the hosts of the fourth debate, and they are about as far from “establishment” as they come: Megyn Kelly, Elizabeth Vargas of News Nation, and Eliana Johnson from The Washington Free Beacon.

You’ll note all of them are 1) employed by a much more conservative-leaning network, and 2) they are conservative-leaning themselves.

But that’s not all of the good news.

Additionally, the RNC announced that Rumble, a bastion of liberty that conservatives have come to rely on, will be the debate’s “exclusive… livestream provider and the RNC’s exclusive online home for the fourth debate.”

If you haven’t heard, the debate will take place in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, on December 6.

As Johnson, who is also editor in chief of The Washington Free Beacon, said she is excited to “offer the candidate a debate platform outside of the mainstream media echo chamber and to give Republican primary voters a debate where conservative ideas and values will be the terrain and not the target.”

This, of course, has been the problem with all the prior debates thus far. In fact, candidate and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy even called out the moderators and establishment media during the last debate.

“We’d have 10 times the viewership, asking questions that GOP primary voters actually care about!”

And he’s right.

Republican voters don’t want questions about climate change, UFOs, and banning gas and coal. Instead, they want to hear about issues that actually impact them and their daily lives.

Finally, it looks as though that is what we will get come December 6. It’s bound to be a better show, too.
