Andrea Mitchell Joins NBC News Revolt Against Hillary Clinton Film (Aug 09, 2013)

The NBC News revolt against an upcoming miniseries about Hillary Clinton continued on Thursday, with Andrea Mitchell calling it a "really bad idea."
NBC's entertainment division is making the miniseries, much to the chagrin of both RNC chair Reince Priebus--who has promised to ban NBC News from hosting any upcoming Republican debates if the series gets made--and NBC journalists, who worry that people will think they had some hand in the film. Foremost among these was Chuck Todd, who called the program a "total nightmare" for NBC News on Thursday.
On her MSNBC show, Mitchell joined in. Speaking to contributor and former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, she said Priebus was "understandably miffed" about the miniseries, as well as a CNN documentary also in the works. Gibbs called the shows a "bad idea."
"A lot of news people would say, including NBC News people, including Chuck Todd and all the rest of us, a really bad idea given the timing," Mitchell responded.
Gibbs said the films would definitely be "unsettling and uncomfortable" to some.
