This is classic. What’s new is old, and what’s old is Granny Clinton, back when she was still showing some cankle.

It’s as if the Clintons are still using their old playbook.

    Fourth estate fifth columnist presstitute whores don’t mind being roped for the good of the collective comrade.
    The canned faux outrage is so the journalist schtick looks more convincing.

    The heavy-handed treatment of journalists Saturday is likely to only exacerbate the Clinton campaign’s long-running tensions with the press.

    Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner, avoided interviews during her first two months as a candidate. Campaign events are carefully stage managed, with reporters getting few opportunities to question the candidate. And she has yet to do a lengthy national media interview.

    Journalists privately met last month to discuss grievances over access on the campaign trail — from not receiving timely logistical information to being kept too far from the candidate at public events or kept completely out of fundraisers. Representatives from the Clinton press corps brought their concerns to top communications officials the following week.

    But just days after the attempted détente. , the Clinton campaign denied access to the press corps’ designated pool reporter at an event. In a joint statement, fourteen news organizations condemned the campaign’s decision as “unacceptable.”

    The press wrangling at the July 4 parade Saturday only brought more scrutiny on the campaign’s handling of the media.

    “Never underestimate @HillaryClinton ‘s capacity to fritter away commanding natural advantages with poor judgment,” tweeted Politico’s Glenn Thrush.
