• CBS Panel Blasts Hillary Clinton’s Media Silence As Scandal Consumes Her Campaign

    It’s probably not the headline that Team Hillary was hoping for. But that’s certainly nothing new, especially as of late.

    Pressure is still mounting for Hillary Clinton to come out and publicly address the growing scandal surrounding her family foundation, undisclosed foreign donations, and how they relate to the emails she deleted from a server she used to store emails she sent and received while serving as Obama’s secretary of state.

    “I ask this, as a reporter,” said CBS anchor Bob Schieffer, “[will Hillary Clinton] have a news conference any time soon?”

    “So here is this great thing–I think it was in a McClatchy story,” said USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page. “It said, ‘Bernie Sanders has had thirty-one encounters with reporters since he announced and Hillary Clinton has had zero.’ And that, I think, is not sustainable for someone who wants to run in Iowa and New Hampshire and be President of the United States.”

    A funny Fox News headline published last week said that Bill Clinton has held more TV interviews than his wife Hillary.

    Stiff-arming the media isn’t working out all that well either for the Clinton Camp.

    Page and Schieffer’s comments were made in light of new numbers for Hillary from a Wall Street Journal/NBC survey which says that more and more Americans find Hillary unfavorable, a number that has increased to 42 percent from 36 percent in the survey just one month ago.

    “The problem is if people don’t trust you, they’re not going to trust the populist message,” said National Journal senior writer Ron Frounier. “I think times have changed enough. She’s not the kind of candidate [Bill Clinton] was. And, mainly, the times have changed in a way, their transparency and accountability and integrity are really going to matter in this election. And it’s not something she can just gloss over.”
