TV Series Based on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Campaign Gets Bad Review from CNN

Leftist corporate media outlet CNN just gave a bad review for a new drama series based on failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

The thumbs down came from CNN’s Brian Lowry.

The show, “The Girls on the Bus,” is adapted from a memoir about Clinton’s second failed campaign.

Lowry published a piece criticizing the series titled, “Journalism could use a smart show about reporting. ‘The Girls on the Bus’ isn’t it. ”

This has to be particularly humiliating for Clinton.

While Clinton wasn’t involved in making the show, it had been hyped due to the insider connection to Hillary.

The series comes from Max, and it was adapted from former New York Times reporter Amy Chozick’s memoir about Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

Here is Max’s billing of the series:

Four female journalists find friendship, love, and scandal as they follow a parade of flawed candidates in an unpredictable presidential campaign.

Chozick decided not to make the show specifically about Hillary Clinton.

She explains:

I felt, just as a writer, fatigue in writing about real life.

I think the country feels fatigue….[Also] politics is dark and divisive.

And I think our show is a light dramedy….I almost want it to be an escape.

That was sort of our goal; this alternate reality that is fun, light, kind of escapist.

However, there is no doubt that Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential run inspired the series.

According to Lowry, “The Girls On The Bus” is, “at best, a frothy soap opera” and, at worst, “an ethical twilight zone.”

Lowry writes that the series:

“As very, very loosely adapted for TV by Chozick and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries), working with another CW veteran in producer Greg Berlanti, Girls on the Bus devolves into a CW-style drama that occasionally addresses the slow death of journalism on the most perfunctory level.”

He adds, “At a moment when journalism would benefit from any kind of morale lift, the last thing it needs is another broadly drawn series that seems to put a spotlight on the profession’s principles before backing over them.”

Lowry is not the only leftist reporter to criticize the series.

Variety and The Hollywood Reporter have also published bad reviews.

Variety, for example, writes, “Its frequent silliness feels inappropriate, while its occasional grandstanding comes off as entirely out of its depth.”

The Hollywood Reporter, meanwhile, takes issue with the series’ “cheesy romance, clunky drama, and predictable twists and turns.”

Unfortunately, the show would have likely received glowing reviews from the corporation if it had an anti-Trump narrative that focused more on Clinton.
