CNN Caves to Pressure from the Right & Cancels a Hillary Clinton Documentary

CNN Films will not be going forward with a controversial planned documentary about Hillary Clinton timed to precede the 2016 presidential race, its director announced earlier today.

Documentarian Charles Ferguson wrote at Huffington Post that he was terminating the project, citing the near-unanimous refusal of persons connected to the Clintons to participate in on-camera interviews.

In reality the documentary had drawn criticism from conservatives since its July announcement, and under pressure CNN finally caved.
