NBC, CNN Cancel Hillary Clinton Projects
New York Times – The ideas seemed simple enough: a documentary on CNN and an NBC mini-series that would capitalize on the popularity of one of the world’s most visible public figures. But nothing is simple when it comes to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Both sides of the political aisle registered objections to the projects, which would have explored the life of the former first lady and potential 2016 presidential candidate. Members of the news divisions at NBC and CNN publicly protested the decision by their networks to go ahead with them.
