Sydney Ember at the New York Times: 'Shattered,' Book About Clinton Campaign, May Become TV Series.
A new book about Hillary Clinton's loss to Donald J. Trump in the presidential election could be heading to the small screen.

"Shattered," by the journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, has been optioned by TriStar Television, a division of Sony Pictures Television, and Davis Entertainment for a limited series. The deal was confirmed by Bridget Matzie, a literary agent for the authors. A network is not yet attached to the project.

Among the first post-mortems of the election, "Shattered" has been a mainstay in dinner-party chatter in political circles since its publication. The continued interest in the election has brought talk of other book-to-TV series as well. The political journalists and analysts Mark Halperin and John Heilemann are currently working on a book about the 2016 election that has also been acquired for a mini-series by HBO.
No and no.

Never mind that numerous members of Clinton's staff have strongly disputed the campaign as depicted in Shattered. And never mind this despicable shit:

And never mind that these projects certainly aren't for Hillary Clinton's supporters, that's for damn sure.

There are so many things about this that enrage me, but chief among them is this: Hillary Clinton and her supporters keep getting told to "go away," but it's open season to make a buck for anyone willing to trade on their hatred of her.

If that doesn't illustrate everything that is wrong with the media's disposition toward Clinton, I can't imagine what would.
