Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's medical episode at New York’s 9/11 memorial service Sunday morning has spurred calls for her to be more transparent about her health, and this time, so far, it is not her Republican opponent Donald Trump leading the charge.
Instead, calls for Clinton to be increasingly open about her health situation have come from reporters for The New York Times and The Washington Post, hardly publications that could be called in the Republican camp.

Adam Nagourney of The New York Times tweeted his concern about the incident soon after it happened.

Even several hours later when Clinton’s doctor announced that she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, Nagourney was not satisfied with the disclosure.

Chris Cillizza of The Washington Post, who just a few days ago had played down Clinton coughing attack and said that was hardly evidence of bad health, admitted Sunday that this latest incident "will catapult questions about her health from the ranks of conservative conspiracy theory to perhaps the central debate in the presidential race over the coming days."

Cillizza said the Clinton campaign made it worse by not allowing any reporters to accompany her as she left the ceremony and waiting an hour and a half to make its first statement on the episode.

Cillizza wrote his article before the announcement that Clinton had come down with pneumonia two days earlier, but that update many hours later also apparently showed that the campaign’s first announcement had not given out all the information that was known.

The Independent also joined in the call for Clinton to become much more forthcoming about her health.

The paper appeared particularly disturbed that when Clinton did emerge from her daughter's Manhattan apartment a few hours after the incident she brushed off the health concerns by declaring "it was a beautiful day in New York."

It is unclear if the Clinton campaign’s later announcement that she has pneumonia will be enough to abate what many will say are larger health concerns.
