CNN’s Crowley Not So Sweet on Clinton Doc

Politico‘s Patrick Gavin has a story out this afternoon with splintering views on what effect a Hillary Clinton documentary will have on the news divisions of CNN and NBC.

CNN’s Candy Crowley tells him the network’s decision to commission a doc, even by an outside group, will still make things tough in terms of perception that they are somehow in Clinton’s pocket. Crowley told Politico:

“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.”

Probably not a shocker that FNC’s Chris Wallace takes an opposing view from Crowley and thinks Republicans have a point.
