In a letter to NBC News, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said “we are suspending the partnership with NBC News for the Republican primary debate at the University of Houston on February 26, 2016.”

“The CNBC network is one of your media properties, and its handling of the debate was conducted in bad faith,” Priebus added. “We understand that NBC does not exercise full editorial control over CNBC’s journalistic approach. However, the network is an arm of your organization, and we need to ensure there is not a repeat performance.”

The RNC chairman made it clear that the Feb. 26 debate is still on and National Review remains a partner.
