Accuracy in Media

White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs (L) l

Hillary Clinton, who would probably like a do-over with the media after stumbling badly during her recent book and media tour, admitted on Thursday that she’ll have to work on her “expectations” of the press, going forward:

I think maybe one of the points Jill was making is that I do sometimes expect perhaps more than I should. And I’ll have to work on my expectations, but I had an excellent relationship with the State Department press that followed me for four years and enjoyed working with them, and whatever I do in the future, I look forward to having the same kind of opportunities.

Clinton made her comments on NPR’s “On Point” program in response to the point made by former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, who said that it was “unrealistic” for Hillary to expect journalists—especially female journalists—to be “100 percent” in her corner.

Working on her expectations of, and relations with, the press will be critical if Clinton decides to run for president in 2016, as is widely expected. The media’s support of Obama played a large role in his two election victories. But with Clinton’s recent gaffes, and her lack of charisma when compared to her husband or Obama, she will need good press relations if she expects to run a competitive race.

    Hillary Clinton, who would probably like a do-over…

    Why doesn’t she just do a reset like her and our POS president did with Russia? That’s working out real well.


    There are state department press people, you wouldn’t know it by the amount of info that gets released. Do they keep them locked up somewhere and only release them one at a time when they need to tell some big lie?

    ..and was the most childish thing I have ever seen for a government. I bet Putin had a good laugh over it. It was like Jr. High.
