If you suspected the slobbering biographies of The Pantsuit forthcoming from CNN and NBC were going to be critical in any way, you can rest assured that won’t be happening.
CNN Films announced Monday they are hiring a director whose portfolio includes documentaries such as “An Inconvenient Truth” and “Jimmy Carter Man from Plains,” drawing swift condemnation from GOP leaders already angry over the network’s decision to produce a film on Hillary Clinton.
The network says in a press release Courtney Sexton will serve as a senior director for the film division that is tasked with producing the documentary on Clinton, who is widely considered a 2016 Democratic presidential candidate.
Sexton previously managed feature documentaries at Participant Media, including the global warming documentary by Al Gore and the Carter film, which explored the former Democratic president’s endeavors since leaving office.
The move drew ire from the RNC, who claim the hire only confirms the Clinton film will have a liberal bias.
“Any concerns the Clinton team had are all gone. This puts the ‘p’ in puff piece,” Sean Spicer, the RNC’s communications director, told Politico. “What’s next, Michael Moore directing?”
We’re sure they’ll be all over her Benghazi fiasco.
