• Secret Service Blocks Reporters From Asking Hillary Questions

    The federal government security apparatus is being used to silence the press.

    The secret service stopped reporters from asking Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton questions after a rally on Tuesday in Henderson, Nevada.

    Fox News’ Ed Henry, who covers Clinton on the campaign trail, wondered why the Secret Service were involved in holding the press at bay when they are only responsible for protecting the former Secretary of State from physical harm, not from reporters’ tough questions.

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign literally herded the press into place with moving rope lines back in July.

    This is the sort of thing that you hear about happening in communist countries. Is this Russia? If it’s ‘President Hillary’, it will be.

    The Clinton campaign’s reporter-wrangling techniques are the same ones Bill Clinton used to keep photojournalists from getting too close. The Republican National Committee unearthed 1992 footage over the summer that shows the Clintons on a public street during a parade and a half-dozen press photographers bumping into each other in a tightly-bound corral formed by several aides and a rope.
