Skip to comments.CNN to produce Hillary Clinton film
Posted on 07/29/2013 4:11:33 PM PDT by mandaladon
CNN Films has tapped documentary filmmaker Charles H. Ferguson to direct a feature-length documentary about former Hillary Clinton, POLITICO has learned.
"CNN is very pleased to be working with Academy-Award winner Charles Ferguson on the film, which will be released in theaters and air on CNN," Allison Gollust, the network's senior vice president of communications, told POLITICO on Monday. The release date has yet to be determined.
The film adds yet another installment to the growing list of Hillary-related television projects and books slated for release before the 2016 presidential campaign. But is also presents a potential image problem for CNN's News division as it covers Clinton in the run up to her highly anticipated bid for the White House. Gollust told POLITICO, "CNN's editorial side has no role in the production of the film, just as it has no role in any of the films produced or acquired by CNN Films."
Nevertheless, the project could cause some headaches for CNN as it seeks to ensure both Clinton's opponents and her supporters that the project will have no bearing on the network's news reporting. Conservatives will likely criticize CNN for devoting so much airtime to a Democratic candidate, while the Clinton campaign is likely to take issue with the network for dedicating so much reporting to their candidate, rather than to her competitors.
"We're hoping to understand how these concerns would be addressed," Nick Merrill, Clinton's press secretary, told POLITICO when asked whether or not he had concerns about the influence the film might have on CNN's reporting.
On Monday, CNN's Jake Tapper noted the editorial risks that NBC Entertainment will have to deal with over its forthcoming Hillary Clinton mini-series, calling it "a lose-lose situation editorially.

And the democrat media complex marches on
Here it comes. A dumptruck full of it. Umbrellas and raincoats may keep it from dripping down your collar.
Of course they will!
CNN is shameless.
They are no longer even pretending to be objective.
Yes, they are mouthing weasel words about independence from their news and editorial side, but they are just that: weasel words.
Even CNN doesn’t expect anyone to take their weasel words seriously. But, they don’t care.
She’s so competent she never saw Ambassador Stevens’ numerous requests for additional security in Benghazi, and then when she denied his requests, it wasn’t her who signed the cables. One lie after another.
Our press has is no longer biased toward the left, they are now political activists of the left.
This is disgusting!
All you need to know about Hillary Clinton is that Bill Clinton said she was his “moral compass.”
The lovefest has started and the moochers, leeches and mental defectives
Will make her the next president. Book it!
Then book your move to Costa Rica.
Stalin would be proud.
Pray for America to Wake Up
I see NBC is making a movie also... It’s called,” Ugly drunkin’ lesbo whore.”
Ha! Ha! Ha! That may be the most unintentionally hysterical line I've ever read in a political article.
