As Well They Should

From the NBC News:  Donald Trump and Ben Carson are both threatening to boycott the next Republican presidential debate if CNBC, who is hosting the event, and the Republican National Committee do not change the stated format of the event.
"Neither Mr. Trump or Dr. Carson will participate in your debate if it is longer than 120 minutes including commercials and does not include opening and closing statements," the letter, obtained exclusively by NBC News and signed.
They take issue with CNBC's plans for a debate that doesn't include opening and closing statements, and runs two hours plus up to another 16 minutes in commercial breaks. According to Politico, CNBC distributed a memo outlining these plans that indicated all candidates had agreed to them.
In the letter, the candidates write that "neither of our campaigns agreed to either the length you propose or your ban on opening or closing statements. In fact, neither of our campaigns were even consulted."  by both candidates, reads.
The Fact that NBC and CNBC lied is not surprising and if the GOP candidates think this is the only slight, they are seriously mistaken.
NBC is a very liberal news company and why the GOP would want to even participate with NBC is beyond me.
After all, the democrats are very, very scared of going on Fox and so they won't.
So, why would the GOP want to go on NBC?
