9 TOO MANY:

GOP learns from 2012 debate debacle, takes control of 2016 (Joseph Curl, January 18, 2015, Washington Times)

On Friday, the RNC announced it will sanction just nine debates in the 2016 presidential election cycle -- and none on MSNBC -- as it overhauls a debate policy that proved disastrous in the 2012 campaign.

Fox will get three (with one televised on Fox Business), CNN has two, NBC has two (with one on CNBC), and the other two networks, ABC and CBS, will each get one.

"The committee chose to limit the number of debates, spread the debates across the country by sanctioning no more than one debate per state, allocate the debates over the course of seven months, include a larger conservative media presence and allow campaigns to know and plan for the debate schedule early," the RNC said in a statement.

They're just an opportunity for the fringe to snipe at the electable.
