The Atlanta Journal-Constitution received an email yesterday that said there would be a media blackout for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s appearance at the National Association of Convenience Stores convention today:
As will be communicated tomorrow at the Closing General Session with Former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, social media, photography, recording, writing about and/or videotaping any part of the session is prohibited.
In addition, the Harry Walker Agency has asked us to communicate the following information to all media attendees:
The NACS Show Closing General Session on Tuesday, October 15 from 8:45 am to 10:00 am is closed to the press. Media members attending the NACS Show will not be permitted to attend the General Session.
Thank you for your understanding.
Vice President of Publishing
NACS: The Association for Convenience & Fuel Retailing
That doesn’t mean that attendees won’t tweet, write or videotape Clinton’s speech today, unless their devices are confiscated at the door. But it does make you wonder what Hillary can possibly say about convenience stores that warrants a media blackout.
