I think Hillary Clinton may have just tipped her hand on policy if she were to be elected President in 2016: state control of the media. The undeclared democratic presidential frontrunner is bemoaning the press for basically asking questions she doesn’t want to answer and reporting on things that are embarrassing to her.
The Hill reports that Clinton slammed the media during a technology conference in San Francisco:
“For me, we have created very difficult hurdles for people who want to serve, who believe they can lead, to be able to do so, and the media has intensified that over time,” cried the former Secretary of State.
Is she still upset over losing the nomination to Obama? The press didn’t event Whitewater, Vince Foster’s “suicide” or Hillary’s vote on the Iraq war; they simply reported on it.
“If you look at how much time used to be spent reporting the news, the real news, not analyzing it, but reporting the news, in the 1960s and ’70s compared to now, it’s dramatically shrunk,” said Clinton.
In other words; stop digging into Hillary’s spotted past and selective memory.
“And people are looking for the best angle, the quickest hit, the biggest embarrassment, instead of in a democracy doing what we should be doing, which is giving people information so they can be decisionmakers, since as voters, indeed they are,” she continued.
