20 Days And Counting Since Hillary Clinton Took a Question From the Press

May 11, 2015

Hillary’s strategy here (and it is a strategy) seems pretty obvious. Avoid questions, avoid controversy and coast silently to the White House. The longer she defers questions, the less the media and the GOP can define her.

Many people in the media will allow her to get away with this. At least Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post is pointing it out…

Hillary Clinton hasn’t answered a question from the media in 20 days

Welcome to day 29 of the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign!

In those 29 days – including April 12, the day she announced, and today – Clinton has taken a total of eight questions from the press. That breaks out to roughly one question every 3.6 days. Of late, she’s taken even fewer questions than that. According to media reports, the last day Clinton answered a question was April 21 in New Hampshire; that means that she hasn’t taken a question from the media in 20 straight days.

Cillizza asked about this on Twitter and got a great response from Jonah Goldberg…

Outstanding.
