Newt Gingrich: Not Possible To Make “Neutral” Docu On Hillary Clinton

By | Monday September 9, 2013 @ 4:03pm PDT

Discussing his latest career move as star of CNN’s resuscitated Crossfire, a few days before its launch, Newt Gingrich said it is not possible to make a “neutral” documentary about Hillary Clinton. Which is just what his new network has proposed to do. Asked his thoughts on the Republican National Committee’s decision last month to block CNN from GOP presidential primary debates during the 2016 election cycle because it is working on a Clinton docu, Gingrich said he thought CNN — and NBC, which has said it is developing a Hillary Clinton miniseries — should offer equal time. “I actually don’t believe you can create a neutral documentary about Hillary Clinton,” Gingrich said. Gingrich never did say what he thought about the RNC’s decision to block CNN from the GOP primary debates; the RNC also voted to block NBC from the debates because of its Clinton miniseries project, which Gingrich also called a “documentary.

“I don’t see it as a giant deal,” he said of the CNN docu, adding, “I don’t think Hillary’s survival or failure are going to rest on these two documentaries.”
