CNN's Hillary Clinton Doc is Dead in The Water


CNN's planned documentary about Hillary Clinton is not happening.  

That's the word from the doc's director Charles Ferguson. Ferguson blames the Clinton camp for the reason the documentary isn't going to happen. 

In a blog post on the Huffington Post , Ferguson writes "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. Not even journalists who want access, which can easily be taken away. I even sensed potential difficulty in licensing archival footage from CBN (Pat Robertson) and from Fox. After approaching well over a hundred people, only two persons who had ever dealt with Mrs. Clinton would agree to an on-camera interview, and I suspected that even they would back out." He adds,  "I decided that I couldn't make a film of which I would be proud. And so I'm canceling. (Not because of any pressure from CNN -- quite the contrary."

CNN spun the canceled doc with this statement "Charles Ferguson has informed us that he is not moving forward with his documentary about Hillary Clinton. Charles is an Academy Award winning director who CNN Films was excited to be working with, but we understand and respect his decision."

NBC still has a proposed Clinton Movie in the works, but that seems to be dying a quiet death in the "in development" stage and will likely never hit air.
