CNN Films has decided not to go forward with their highly-anticipated documentary on Hillary Clinton after the director stepped down from the project, citing pressure from both sides of the political aisle.


A spokesperson for CNN Worldwide told Politico,“Charles Ferguson has informed us that he is not moving forward with his documentary about Hillary Clinton …[W]e won’t seek other partners and are not proceeding with the film.”

Ferguson wrote a blog for the Huffington Post today, where he said that pressure from Clinton aides and supporters — as well as from the Republican National Committee — led to many interview subjects and sources shying away from him.

He wrote,“When I approached people for interviews, I discovered that nobody, and I mean nobody, was interested in helping me make this film. Not Democrats, not Republicans — and certainly nobody who works with the Clintons, wants access to the Clintons, or dreams of a position in a Hillary Clinton administration.”

The project’s announcement drew immediate ire from the RNC, which voted to ban CNN (and NBC, who is planning a fictionalized-version of Clinton’s life) from hosting or sponsoring Republican primary debates

So let me get this straight: CNN is preparing a documentary about Hillary Clinton in time for the 2016 election, and NBC is working on a TV mini-series about Hillary that will air in time for the 2016 election … and Hollywood is developing a feature-length film called “Rodham” to promote Hillary Rodham Clinton … just in time for the 2016 election. I know there are way too many uninformed and poorly-educated voters in this country who are easily manipulated by the media, but don’t you think that even they would understand that this is a bit over the line in advocating for Hillary Clinton’s candidacy? The media and Hollywood are not objective observers here. They are on the side of big government liberals, and they now openly and brazenly push that agenda. There was a time when they would advance their bias and agenda quietly. No longer! Just like with Obama in 2008 and 2012, they will push the,“first female president,” historic nature of her candidacy to the point where most Americans won’t be able to see beyond it. Understand what we have now in this country — a media publicly advancing one side over the other. The result is elections which aren’t free and aren’t fair. In a country where too many voters know who Kim Kardashian is and not enough know who James Madison is … we’re in trouble.- See more at: http://walshfreedom.com/2013/07/here-we-go-ag...

By the time 2016 gets here - Hillary will be an 'old song' that people won't want to sing. She's already there!
But then who will the Dems trot out to run around the track? How about Chelsea?
