Clinton Doesn't Want the Biopics Either

Hillary Clinton "is cheering on Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus's efforts to kill a pair of upcoming televised programs about her," Bloomberg reports.

Members of the Clinton camp "worry the TV series are more likely to hurt than help their candidate in the likely event she decides to run. They calculate the Republicans are already, in the words of one pundit, 'working the refs' -- meaning the networks now would have to bend over backward to avoid turning the programs into flattering portraits. And they note the director of the CNN program is Charles Ferguson, who won an Academy Award for Inside Job, a scathing documentary on the Wall Street financial crisis. That film cast blame, in part, on key figures in President Bill Clinton's administration for their roles in the events leading up to the crash."
