A group of 14 news organizations has issued a statement condemning the Hillary Clinton campaign for denying access to a pool reporter on Monday.

"We haven't yet had a clear explanation about why the pool reporter for today's events was denied access. But any attempt by the campaign to dictate who is in the pool is unacceptable. The pool is open to any reporter willing to take part," read the statement from news organizations including The New York Times, Boston Globe, Financial Times, New York Daily News, Politico and the Wall Street Journal.

David Martosko, U.S. political editor for the U.K.-based Daily Mail was the assigned pool reporter for Monday. He told Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File" Monday that the campaign said about midnight Sunday he would not be allowed to cover the campaign, but the pool members agreed that the campaign would not dictate who could be their pool reporter and Martosko showed up Monday morning anyway.

Conflicting reasons were given, he said, but some suspect the campaign didn't like unflattering coverage Martosko gave to Clinton's Saturday campaign rally in New York City.

"Every reporter from every news organization, whether you like the Clintons or not, should stand shoulder to shoulder with us," Martosko told Fox News. "It is really unfortunate that we have to be the story here."
