The Clinton family is the darling of the mainstream media.
During the 2016 election, they spent virtually every second defending them.
And after the election, it has continued, and they are now trying to scrap a major Clinton scandal from history.
Last year the History Channel announced they would be running a series on the Bill Clinton impeachment scandal.
The series was going to go over the events that led towards Clinton’s impeachment following his sexual misconduct with his intern, Monica Lewinsky.
Lewinsky was booked to be a part of the series before it was canceled.
The History Channel stated that it decided not to move forward with the series for “creative reasons.”
As reported by Reuters:
“History Channel said on Wednesday it had decided not to move forward with a six-episode scripted drama series that it announced last September.
“The Breach: Inside the Impeachment of Bill Clinton,” was billed as “an intimate, riveting depiction of how one of the nation’s biggest political scandals unfolded.”
“A decision was made a few months ago not to move forward on the series for creative reasons. Production had not commenced,” History Channel said in a statement. The network did not give details.
In a separate development, producer Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter that he was no longer developing the best-selling book “A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Sex Scandal that Nearly Brought Down a President” for FX television as planned.
Murphy, producer of the “American Crime” FX series that recently dramatized the O.J. Simpson double-murder trial, and the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace, had optioned the 2000 book more than a year ago.
He told the magazine in an interview for its April 4 edition that he had second thoughts about doing the series, and had informed Lewinsky.
“I told her, ‘Nobody should tell your story but you, and it’s kind of gross if they do,’” Murphy was quoted as saying. “‘If you want to produce it with me, I would love that; but you should be the producer and you should make all the goddamn money.’”
Clinton was impeached on charges of perjury and obstruction during his second term as president but was acquitted by the Senate.
Lewinsky, whose affair with Clinton occurred while she was an intern at the White House, has been the subject of numerous books and has recently campaigned against bullying.”
Despite the fact that the History Channel’s goal is to produce historically significant content, they decided that a series on Clinton’s impeachment was not in their best interest.
While their stated reasoning could be correct, it also opens up speculation that the powers that be over the television industry could have had a hand at shutting down the series.
Hollywood is notorious for promoting leftist causes.
One of the most prominent figures in Hollywood, Harvey Weinstein, was a friend of Hillary Clinton, and a major supporter of liberal causes.
Even with him out of the industry, there may be others with enough influence to shut down programming that doesn’t fit their political agenda.
