CNN Cancels Hillary Clinton Documentary Amid Political Pressure

The much buzzed about Hillary Clinton documentary being produced by CNN Films has officially been canceled after political pressure from the Republican National Committee, as well as Clinton aides and supporters.

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

“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,” filmmaker Charles Ferguson told Huffington Post.

The Republican National Committee had announced that if CNN moved forward with the film, it would ban the network from hosting or sponsoring Republican primary debates.

    Sexism…….Macho Warriors are threatened. Righties are scared shitless of losing again if she runs. And they are too damn busy trying to shut down the gov”t at the moment. Fat cat white boys paid off by the HMO’s and insurance companies are too busy trying to take health care away from those that desperately need it.

    This is kind of crazy. Documentaries are made all the time – about lefties and righties and everybody in between. What really bothers me is the government (both sides) was able to close ranks so effectively, the documentary will no longer be made…censorship at the highest level.

    @Haley: It was a reply to Dawne.

    Well said!

    too bad. was wondering if the thing would be at all accurate, that is covering HC being a closeted lesbian and pathological liar.

  • Addison DeWitt

    S: He is still free to make his documentary. No one demanded he not make it.

    Sorry this is not a case of sexism. It’s true people make documentaries, but news outlets should not be doing them on one lone candidate during an election cycle the person is probably going to run in. Hilary already has a clear advantage with her last name. It’s not fair to anyone who runs against her. You just know it was going to be a puff piece.

  • Abernathy

    It has nothing to do with sexism or politics. It’s the Clintons themselves. Corrupt and dangerous people they are, and lots of people on both sides of the aisle know this.

    Dayum. Why is everyone so scared? Even the GOP? That’s funny.

  • justsayin

    Way to bend to pressure! They just lost a TON of viewers. She’s not even an official candidate. Why would it matter? It wouldn’t surprise if they lose reporters now too. Where are your balls CNN? Oh wait, you don’t have any.
