It’s not easy for the boss to make it on a mere $200,000 an hour.

Welcome to day 29 of the Hillary Clinton [she belongs in jail — ed.] 2016 presidential campaign!
In those 29 days – including April 12, the day she announced, and today – Clinton has taken a total of eight questions from the press. That breaks out to roughly one question every 3.6 days. Of late, she’s taken even fewer questions than that. According to media reports, the last day Clinton answered a question was April 21 in New Hampshire; that means that she hasn’t taken a question from the media in 20 straight days.
“All is proceeding as I have foreseen” from a blog post back in April on this same issue:
The press will take a lot of abuse from, and provide a lot of cover for, favored candidates. But like Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction, they will not be ignored!
Still, this is the new Clinton campaign, right? The one where she and the people around her pledged to deal differently with the press? Little did we know that “different” in this case meant “next to not at all.”
Yes, we are one month into the campaign. And yes, Clinton and her team wanted to start very low-profile this time around – to avoid making the mistakes she made in 2008. So, it’s possible things could change. But if past is prologue, I wouldn’t bet on it.
Things don’t have to change one whit, but that in itself is a story the press should cover — and not just on a WaPo blog. Let’s see Clinton (who belongs in jail) continue to ignore the press when her malign neglect is the lede story on every political page.
