WoW Trump Effect – CNBC Charging $250,000 Per 30 Second GOP Debate Commercial…

NEW YORK – CNBC is asking advertisers to pay a cool $250,000 to get their 30-second spot on the third Republican presidential debate, The Post has learned.

The debate, headlined “Your Money, Your Vote: The Republican Presidential Debate,” is set to take place on Oct. 28 and will air on the business news cable network.

CNBC’s asking price is 25 percent higher than the $200,000 per 30-second spot that CNN fetched during the second debate — and significantly more than the typical $50,000 that CNBC charges for its sometimes schlocky commercials for personal grooming products or gold buying services.

The CNN debate on Sept. 17 drew 23.1 million viewers, making it the most watched program in its history. The first Republican debate on Fox on Aug. 6 attracted 24 million viewers.

It is not known what Fox charged for a 30-second spot.

CNBC, expecting a ratings blockbuster, is looking to price its spots accordingly.

The network confirmed its moderator lineup on Wednesday, naming Carl Quintanilla, Becky Quick and its chief Washington correspondent, John Harwood, to fill the roles.

The event is being held at the Coors Events Center at the University of Colorado-Boulder.

The candidates will be expected to answer questions on the economy, jobs growth and entrepreneurship, according to the network.  (READ MORE)

  6. What do we know about the CNBC moderators? I don’t watch that channel.

    I wonder if Carly will go on a tangent about how she would ‘fix’ the economy similar to the tangent she went on at the last debate about how she would send a message to

    • facebkwallflower says:

      I will say Donald needs to take the time to explain different bankrupt levels and clarify for the Everyday Joe that he did not just fold up and walk away from all creditors. He has to come up with a way to explain quickly, a mini tutorial to “educate” the other candidates in a way that exposes them as lying about the bankruptcies or just plain stupid and the “mature guy” in the room needs to teach them the differences. And all the time the ordinary person learns too. Bankruptcy is a very broad word. It would behoove him to break it down.

      • gulfbreeze says:

        All Trump needs to explain the corporate bankruptcies “renegotiated terms with our lenders.”

        No need to do a mini-tutorial, first because there’s not enough time to get unto specifics.


        • gulfbreeze says:

          Sorry, “into specifics”.

          Second, “renegotiated” exactly describes the bankruptcy process, and IMO reinforces one of the primary skills (negotiation)Trump possesses, which is in stark contrast to Obama and other candidates.

          And third, “renegotiated” carries as little negative inferences and qualities as possible.

    • This was something I mentioned very early on. Even though Trump seeks the Republican nomination, he has a great amount of appeal to certain Dem voters who are fed up with the DC insider crowd (Clintons), and can’t stomach the idea of voting for Bernie Sanders. That’s why I would like to see polls that ask ALL voters (not just Republicans) who they want for president. I believe Trump’s margin of support is far greater than even the most optimistic polls reveal.

        He looks poised to get a Teamsters endorsement, he polls astronomically better among blacks than any Republican in the past, and he has Dems and Indies registering Repub so they can vote for him in the primaries. His support comes from some very non-traditional areas – he truly is a game changer.

    They aren’t debates & Trump is responsible for ratings & I liked his idea of giving extra $ to Vets instead of CNN & now CNBC profiting from him. Did CNN even bother to respond? I doubt it.

    Marco Jeb Junior never worked a day in his life not on the tax payer’s dime. He knows nothing about the economy, never created a job, and is clueless of what a small business owner’s life is like.

    Met with family the other night to celebrate another’s anniversary. Subject at one point turned to politics… 27 year old niece said oh yeah Donald Trump! Well politics is the last topic I thought my young niece would have clue about. I don’t think she has ever voted in her life. I was actually startled at her enthusiasm. if she was all gung ho about him it definitely means he is reaching the younger generation.

    Sundance, I’m sorry about the language on this comment. The language isn’t mine. It’s in the quotes themselves. I believe people who follow presidential politics need to see these if they haven’t already.

    ‘Where is the G-damn fing flag? I want the G-damn fing flag up every fing morning at fing sunrise.’

    (From the book ‘Inside The White House’ by Ronald Kessler, p. 244 – Hillary to the staff at the Arkansas Governor’s mansion on Labor Day, 1991)

    ‘You sold out, you mother f***er! You sold out!’ From the book ‘Inside’ by Joseph Califano, p. 213 – Hillary yelling at Democrat lawyer.

    ‘Fk off! It’s enough that I have to see you **-kickers every day, I’m not going to talk to you too!! Just do your G*damn job and keep your mouth shut.’

    (From the book ‘American Evita’ by Christopher Anderson, p. 90 – Hillary to her State Trooper bodyguards after one of them greeted her with ‘Good morning.’)

    ‘You f***ing idiot.’

    (From the book ‘Crossfire’ p. 84 – Hillary to a State Trooper who was driving her to an event.)

    ‘If you want to remain on this detail, get your f***ing ass over here and grab those bags!’

    (From the book ‘The First Partner’ p. 259 – Hillary to a Secret Service Agent who was reluctant to carry her luggage because he wanted to keep his hands free in case of an incident.)

    ‘Get f*ed! Get the fk out of my way!!! Get out of my face!!!’

    (From the book ‘Hillary’s Scheme’ p. 89 – Hillary’s various comments to her Secret Service detail agents.)

    ‘Stay the fk back, stay the fk away from me! Don’t come within ten yards of me, or else! Just f**king do as I say, Okay!!!?’

    (From the book ‘Unlimited Access’, by Clinton FBI Agent in Charge, Gary Aldrige, p. 139 – Hillary screaming at her Secret Service detail.)

    ‘Where’s the miserable c*ck sucker?’

    (From the book ‘The Truth About Hillary’ by Edward Klein, p. 5 – Hillary shouting at a Secret Service officer)

      LBJ cursed like he got paid by the word. Nixon was foul mouthed too. It’s the circumstances in which the cursing occur that bother me. Cursing during a terrorist attack could be appropriate. Cursing your Secret Service detail for petty inconvenience or about forgotten sunglasses shows a completely self-involved, vindictive and small person. That person should not hold any government office. If Hillary can’t control her volatile temper and be polite in routine personal interactions, how will she cope under extreme stress? I think we know the answer from the night Benghazi happened.

        You can imagine what Putin or the PM of China would do to her. These hard cases will crush her. They could put her under so much pressure on the world stage she’d collapse. She is so brittle and full of rage that she’d be easy to wig ouyt.

        This is why she will not debate Bernie or Webb. She’d freak out.

    This is the debate, I mean farce, where Trump can score the knockout punch. Explain how/where current policy is destroying the country, and the solution, positive effect, his course correction will have. Give examples on tax policy, examples on illegal costs, examples on lawlessness and how it can no longer be enabled, etc.

    Okay, everyone– Look for this exchange during the MSNBC debate on economic issues:

    RUBIO (*Breathlessly): “Mr. Trump has had FOUR bankruptcies–how can he us lecture on the economy?”

    MODERATOR: “Mr. Trump, would you care to respond?”

    TRUMP: “Yes. I’ve been in business for more than 40 years. I play within the rules. My business is just as vulnerable to bad economic downturns as everybody else’s is. I’d like to ask Mr. Rubio how HIS businesses have performed over the years.”

    MODERATOR: “Mr. Rubio?”

    RUBIO: “Er….”

    Zing. Done. Next question.

    Never watched CNBC so don’t know anything about those moderators. Still, sight unseen, I’d be willing to be that they are no worse, and probably better, than Kelly, Wallace, and Baier in the initial Faux “debate”.

    If you haven’t already read any of Scott Adams’ stuff about Trump’s sooper mind control by planting keywords in the audience’s heads, give it a look. Then try watching this one and see if you can avoid thinking “sweaty” when Marco is on, “that face” when Fiorino is up, and “low energy” for Jeb. I think those memes have been securely embedded and will last the duration. Cruz never seems to get a chance to speak anyway, so he won’t matter, and Carson will continue to put everyone to sleep as his eyelids slowly blink.

    Reblogged this on Centinel2012 and commented:

    Everybody makes money from a popular person, if Trump wasn’t there they would get half that amount at best, probably a lot less.


  25. What would be a kick is for Trump to pullout a week prior and watch the fireworks, then demand half of ad revenue go to vets in order for him to get back in. The debate would fizzle without him in it.


    • Juan says:

      Don’t expect CNBC to be sending any of their Trump windfall to the Vets. They have fallen on hard times with the Fox Business Channel taking it’s toll on them. Not sure if they are even profitable anymore. What else would you expect from the family of MSNBC ?


  26. Plain Jane says:

    This keeps going, and A B will have to polish up the Clydesdales for commercials befitting the Super Bowl because the cost of air-time will be comparable.


  27. VideoSavant says:

    The advertising rates being charged are an excellent illustration of one the key tools the GOP should be using to police unfair news coverage of its elected officials, candidates and the party at large.

    The GOP should punish media outlets that deliberately misrepresent GOP politicians and policies by ensuring that violators do not have an opportunity to host debates and charge these sort of advertising rates. While that takes a bit of long-term monitoring and planning, there are things that the GOP can use as a short-term tool to police unfair reporting. The GOP should also make it know to all major media companies that it will not direct RNC advertising funds to media outlets that unfairly portray GOP politicians and policies. Likewise, it should recommend that individual GOP campaigns follow the same line.

    In 2012, the RNC spend on political campaigns was nearly $500 million, and a significant chunk of that money was for political advertising. So, this is real money, with real potential for modifying unfair media behavior.

    Trump’s handling of FOX News is yet another example of how he is showing how GOP leadership how to lead and act in a strong way. If a media outlet isn’t going to play it straight, they go in the GOP penalty box, where they will suffer financially.

    This is not rocket science.
