Press Told that Clinton Speech Will be Her Interview

hillary clinton morning joe segment [1]

Hillary Clinton’s press avoidance hit a new high today with the announcement that her speech at Texas Southern University will be her interview, and that “there will be no opportunities to interview her.”

There is no doubt that Hillary is hoping that by limiting access to the press she will be able to avoid any potentially tough questions on Benghazi, her private email server and the Clinton Foundation finances. But that may backfire as the media grow increasingly frustrated. As a result, they could wind up being far less supportive of her candidacy than would normally have been the case.

The liberal media played a key role in helping Obama get elected and reelected, and they could play a similar role for Hillary if she would only agree to answer their questions rather than shutting them out.
