Clinton Campaign Denies Access to Reporter
Given the way that Hillary has been treating the press for the last two months, this should come as a surprise to no one.
From the Daily Mail…
Hillary Clinton campaign denies access to DailyMail.com political editor as Monday’s pool reporter in New Hampshire
The Clinton campaign denied access to the designated print pool reporter in New Hampshire this morning.
David Martosko of DailyMail.com was told by Hillary for New Hampshire staffer Meredith Thatcher that he was not approved for Monday’s pooled events.
When Martosko asked Thatcher to phone her boss, Harrell Kirstein, he was again told that he had not been approved by the campaign.
Martosko pressed further and asked Thatcher if he was being prohibited from getting on either of the pool vans, to which she replied; ‘I’m afraid that’s right.’
When he asked why, she responded; ‘All I know is what Harrell has told me. I got an email saying the print pooler would be changed for today. Sorry.’
Martosko then spoke with Clinton press aide Nick Merrill for 10 minutes and learned that the campaign would not be allowing the designated print reporter to cover Mrs. Clinton today.
Merrill offered varied and contradictory reasons for this decision.
Of course, this is also true…
