John Catsimatidis, host of “The Cats Roundtable” on New York AM 970, asked Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus Sunday why CNN criticized GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. According to Priebus, CNN, as well as other cables news, try to divide parties and people because division means profit. “Here’s the thing about cable… division is profit. If you’re divided, you’re making money,” Priebus explained. “There is no money in unity. So, it is a profit center to divide people, to divide politics, to divide parties, and that’s what you see on television.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent
