One thing that has been missing from the 2016 campaign over the last eight months is reporters asking questions of Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton out on the trail. While she has done individual interviews with news organizations, Clinton has not held a news conference or press availability with reporters since early December of last year.
Usually on a campaign for President during the primary phase, reporters get a crack at the candidate – for at least a couple of questions – sometimes once a day, maybe every other day.
But that has not happened with Hillary Clinton since after a town hall that she held in Fort Dodge, Iowa on December 4 of last year.
Can anyone imagine Hillary Clinton holding a wide-ranging, lengthy news conference like this? Especially on a regular basis.
