A new compilation video shows just how much Democrat Hillary Clinton has avoided the media during her presidential campaign that began April 12.
The piece, put together by the Washington Free Beacon, splices several instances of either reporters complaining about Clinton's avoidance of the press or Clinton and her staffers stonewalling members of the media one way or the other.
Story continues below video.
"Senator Clinton, can you take questions from the media as well? We haven't heard from you in a month," asked Ed Henry of Fox News during a Clinton campaign appearance last month.
Clinton replied by saying, "I might. I'll have to ponder it."
In another example, campaign aides would not allow
a print reporter from British newspaper the Daily Mail to enter a campaign event in New Hampshire Monday morning.
Fourteen news organizations have since filed a protest
condemning the behavior by the Clinton campaign.
"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 a statement from news organizations including The New York Times, Boston Globe, Financial Times, New York Daily News, Politico, and the Wall Street Journal.
The video concludes with a soundbite of Wolf Blitzer talking with a guest who happens to be part of Clinton's campaign.
"Please tell the secretary we're looking forward to a full-scale interview with her ASAP," Blitzer told Joel Benenson.
In response, Benenson simply stared at the camera and did not say anything.
Many have criticized the Clinton campaign for stonewalling the press, including Republican candidate for president Carly Fiorina.
Last month, Fiorina scheduled a press conference outside a South Carolina building where Clinton was due to hold a campaign event later that day.
The email invite to Fiorina's event read, in part: "Our events tomorrow are all open to the press. And by open press, we mean we'll actually take questions."
