You can scrap the CNN documentary on Hillary Rodham Clinton: Nobody — absolutely nobody — would agree to speak on record about the former secretary of state and potential 2016 White House candidate, the film director said.

Film director Charles Ferguson said in The Guardian that he pulled the plug on his planned documentary after receiving a solid wall of silence from the 100 or so he approached to interview for the film..

On top of that, aides to the former secretary of state pressured CNN from behind the scenes to have the film dropped from its production schedules, Mr. Ferguson said. One statement from an aide: Mrs. Clinton would only cooperate “over my dead body,” he said, in The Guardian. Full story. Cheryl K. Chumley, Washington Times

 What actress should have played Hillary and why the wall of silence?
