Disloyal Hillary Campaign Pool Reporter Told to Hit the Woods

If Hillary and the servants comprising the impermeable bubble around her are this insolent toward the press now, imagine what it will be like after that same press hypes her into office and she doesn’t need it anymore:

Martosko is US Political Editor for the Daily Mail. Admittedly he asked for this treatment by not being a sycophant:

Perhaps as an attitude adjustment, Shrillary’s people have blocked him out as a pool reporter:

The Hillary Clinton campaign denied access to the print pool reporter on Monday, reigniting reporters’ longstanding concerns about the campaign’s commitment to running an open and transparent campaign.

David Martosko, the U.S. political editor for London’s Daily Mail, reported showing up at the campaign’s breakfast stop in New Hampshire only to be told that he would not be allowed to pool the day’s events. Pool reporters are responsible for sending reports from the trail to the rest of the press corps.

Shrillary’s people wouldn’t let Martosko ride in the pool van, so he had to drive on his own, hoping that at the first campaign stop in Rochester he would be permitted to do his job. He was not.

Daily Mail spokesperson Sean Walsh said the organization is “seeking an explanation from the Clinton campaign as to why this occurred as Mr. Martosko was scheduled to be the designated print pool reporter in New Hampshire this morning.”

It is not supposed to be up to the campaign which reporters serve as pool reporters. But when did rules and protocols ever apply to Shrillary?

Access to President Shrillary will be strictly limited to those willing to nuzzle obediently beneath the coattails of her pantsuits.

Reporters had better stay on her good side.
