Awww No Hillary Documentary: Update Et tu NBC?

In a lot of different ways this is kind of disappointing.

Director nixes Hillary documentary for CNN after pressure from Clinton aides
The filmmaker who was planning to produce a controversial documentary on Hillary Clinton has pulled out of the project, claiming that Clinton aides exerted pressure on him and that dozens of potential sources refused to grant interviews.
Director Charles Ferguson revealed his decision regarding the now-canned documentary for CNN Films in a column posted Monday on The Huffington Post. He cited opposition from members of both parties -- the Republican National Committee had threatened to boycott presidential primary debates hosted by CNN over the project -- but indicated the strongest resistance came from the Clinton world.
"When I approached people for interviews, I discovered that nobody, and I mean nobody, was interested in helping me make this film," he said. "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."
Ferguson said that after approaching more than 100 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."~snip~
I seriously doubt republicans threatening to boycott CNN had much effect on the decision, I've only been able to make it through 5 minutes of their "reporting" before the tears from my laughter made it impossible to see.
My guess is that Hill put the kibosh on anybody cooperating for the documentary so it wouldn't cut into any of her book sales. I mean after all why would low information voters bother reading a book when they can just watch it on TV?
I don't think it has anything to do with her worrying that the truth might actually get out there either seeing as how CNN has no problem carrying her water when she lies anyway.

Clinton says she 'misspoke' about sniper fire

Yeah that's the ticket.
One story and then never spoken about it again, I wonder if they'll remind their viewers about her less than honest assertion when she runs in 2015 like they did when she testified in front of congress about Benghazi?
Oh wait.........

update: NBC Scraps Hillary Clinton Miniseries

So who out there doesn't think Bill and Hill had this die on the vine?

I had a different reaction

As soon as I read "....but indicated the strongest resistance came from the Clinton world.", I heard my internal tocsin.

The fact that the director mentions opposition from the Clinton camp over six times(?), is indicative that it was likely inconsequential to the decision.

So, was in the Republicans alone? I doubt it. I believe there was something else at play

The only way it would have happened is if Hillary wanted it to happen.
Hillary owns the testicles of all liberal men alive.
