WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican National Committee wants NBC and CNN to cancel upcoming programs on Hillary Rodham Clinton and is threatening to blackball the networks from future Republican presidential debates if they fail to comply.

RNC chairman Reince Priebus (ryns PREE’-bus) calls the programs political ads “masquerading” as unbiased productions. He vows not to partner with the networks on GOP debates if they don’t pull the programs.

Clinton has not yet said whether she’ll run for president again in 2016.

CNN Films is planning a feature-length film on the former first lady and secretary of state for next year.

NBC has announced a miniseries “Hillary” starring Diane Lane. It’s expected to be released before the 2016 presidential election.

NBC Entertainment declined comment on the RNC request. CNN did not immediately comment.

RYOT NOTE: Hillary Clinton’s recently launched Twitter bio lists titles like First Lady and pantsuit aficionado, but it’s the “glass ceiling cracker, TBD…” that’s getting a reaction. Further adding to speculation about her next steps, she sat down for lunch with President Obama last week. It’s gonna be a while before we really know what’s up, so for now, make sure you’re all ready to go for 2016. Register to vote by clicking the gray box alongside the story and Become The News!
