Candy Crowley on CNN's Hillary Documentary: 'Makes It Very Difficult For Me'

August 9th, 2013 6:21 PM

As NewsBusters previously reported, three Clinton-loving MSNBCers on Thursday spoke out against NBC's upcoming miniseries about Hillary.

On Friday, CNN's Candy Crowley told Politico that her network's planned documentary on Clinton "makes it very difficult for me":

CNN’s Candy Crowley told POLITICO on Friday that her network’s planned documentary will “make life more difficult, I think there’s no doubt about it.”

“You can say all you want, this is a commissioned documentary from people who are not in the employ of CNN. It’s not me. It’s not Wolf Blitzer. It’s not John King. It’s an outside documentary group. But we’re with CNN and so this is not a story where the nuances are well-received, particularly by Republicans.” [...]

“Reince Priebus, I think, is wrong when he suggests — I know he’s wrong — when he suggests that what CNN is trying to do is boost the [Democratic National Committee]. It’s just not. It’s programming. She’s a good story. Viewers want to know. Politically, it makes it very difficult for me.

So now representatives of both networks involved in Clinton programs are speaking out against these projects.

As I cautioned Thursday, I smell a rat. I smell a big rat.
