CNN Films Commissions Feature-length Documentary Film on Hillary Rodham Clinton from

Academy Award-Winning Director and Producer Charles Ferguson

CNN Films announced today that it has commissioned a feature-length documentary on Hillary Rodham Clinton from Academy Award-winning director and producer Charles Ferguson.  The documentary, currently in pre-production, will take a comprehensive look at the professional and personal life of one of the most powerful women in American politics.  It is expected to premiere in 2014 with a theatrical run prior to airing on CNN.
"I am very excited to be making a film about Hillary Rodham Clinton, whose fascinating life and work embody so many of America’s, and the world’s, hopes and challenges.  I am delighted and extremely grateful that CNN Films has given me this remarkable opportunity."
Charles Ferguson is the founder and president of Representational Pictures, Inc.  Ferguson produced and directed “No End in Sight:  The American Occupation of Iraq” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007.  The film, which marked his directorial debut, won several awards including the National Society of Film Critics, New York Film Critics Circle Award, Toronto Film Critics Association Award, and Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award.  Ferguson’s critically acclaimed second film “Inside Job” debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010 and went on to win the Academy Award for Best Documentary Film.

    CNN a leftist “news” network, hires a leftist director, to do a documentary on a leftist political figure. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west.

    Never to early to promote a new…old leftist candidate for President. CNN and the rest of the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media managed to get President Obama elected twice why not old Hill.

    Obama the most corrupt President in the history of the country. His scandals buried by the liberal media.

    Go ahead and spout whatever drivel you wish, she will be the next President of the United States…and we will still be a couple of Bozos posting on a TV ratings website.

    that woman.

    The truth is the truth!

    What were Hill and O, doing the night of September 11TH 2012? A shrieking Hill, “At this point what difference does it make.”

    The corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media is a nice poodle to own.

  • David

    The title of the documentary is attentively called: “Hillary Rodham Clinton: What difference does it really make.”

    She is not leadership material, she can’t even own up to screw ups.

    Ideally, this movie and the NBC mini-series should be on Syfy. :grin:

    More left-wing garbage. We have no hope at our American values (freedoms, Capitalism, right to have a chance to live) if even the TV networks cannot stop promoting their liberals. FOX News may be right of center, but it is no worse than CNN or CNBC (MSNBC is off the charts left).

    @ Sicilian Papa

    I am a secular conservative- so secular =/= liberal

  • Hillbilly

    Joe Biden is probably going to pull the plug on the TV line of America the night this and the one on NBC airs. ;)

    I always add the “secular” pretty much because it tweaks the left. They are so freaked out by Christians and faith. I’m just having a little fun.

    Apple, Hillbilly

    Nice to read you guys…keep in touch.

  • Joe

    Since CNN threw out it’s journalism credits years ago. This will not be a documentary. It will be a long Reality TV show. Bleech.

    And here I thought America did not torture folks. You know they are not going to be true or the clintons would already be suing.

    @Sicilian Papa

    Looks like your boy Chris Matthews will stay above 50k in the demo. The lowest I’ve saw was 79k. Still a few more weeks of summer so you could still be right. :cool:


  • Hillbilly
