It looks like the revolt is already crumbling. But in Politico, you can read some of the Republicans’ concerns. The focus is all wrong. Jeb Bush’s camp, for instance, is actually arguing for veto power over chyrons:
“At one point in the meeting, representatives for Bush demanded that campaigns have veto power over which graphics the networks are allowed to use. (During the last debate, CNBC listed Bush’s past work as a financial consultant but omitting his eight-year tenure as Florida governor.) Aides to other candidates agreed.”
Like the rest of the CNBC debacle, trying to frame Jeb! as a banker rather than life-long politician is preposterous. But what kind of journalist would agree to that kind of oversight from a candidate? Will all journalists, even the honest ones, have to negotiate with Republican campaigns over every graphic and picture they use during a telecast?
