So how much longer do we wait until the major candidate for POTUS has a open unscripted press conference where the reporters finally at long last get to ask her the important questions they have had for the last year?

Is it now possible that someone can make it into the White House without the press scrutiny of the past? Why yes indeed it is... just look at how the MSM is bought and paid for in this election cycle.

Wow...Americans are getting real choices for president,,, a rogue megalomaniac or a pre-determined, well scripted, bought and paid for by the establishment candidate. The other candidates are so far down in the polls, 99% of people couldn't even tell you their names.


So are we looking at the first POTUS that simply refuses to talk to the press?

What kind of precedent are we setting here and is it a good one?

Press conference.

There's a difference between that and one on one interviews, but surely you know that, right?

Open press conferences, not interviews.
There is a huge difference!

Having a "scripted" interview with the MSM is NOT the same thing as a press conference. Google is your friend!

You can find scripted press interviews all day long.


Find one unscripted press conference,,, you will be doing something that no one else has done for 270+ days.


Unscripted is the key word... not interviews where the questions are pre-approved or submitted by the Clinton campaign.

It took 4.1 seconds to debunk your post.

Every time I bother to turn on the TV it's the Trump show....usually defending his dumbass faux pas.

Clinton should just keep her mouth shut and let Trump destroy himself and the Republican party as well.

Press conferences are for others. She is above that.

Things like press conferences, transparency, telling the truth are for the little people.

And I'm NOT being facetious.

What you see is the direct result of Clinton refusing to talk to the press. They have to talk about what Trump says, the only thing they have about Hillary is what is scripted and released by her campaign.


Hillary Clinton's first open press conference will be her last... a total meltdown on TV. Tough questions out there about that email server she does not want to answer.

Thats because the media is covering for her. On the other hand they can't wait to get Trump to field questions so that anything and everything he says can be used against him in the court of Media opinion.

You guys do understand the elections rigged, all they have to do is get their Hillary 'pig skin' down to the goal line. The Media 'refs' will do the rest.

Our media has become tyrannical. The 4th estate is gone and that's a really bad sign. Dark days are coming because the left is going to continue rationalizing their extremism . I honestly think they could rationalize locking us all up or worse.

That's the whole point of this thread... to point out how the media is complacent in allowing her free pass on having an open press conference.

You nailed it when you said they hang on Trump's every word... because Trump, unlike Clinton, has to talk to the press.

Until Clinton is forced to have open press conferences, the advantage is distinctly hers.

The question is, can a major political candidate walk into the White House without ever having a press conference after being involved in a huge classified data scandal?

The answer will become clear as the days tick by.

Most of the electorate doesn't care about the server.

Clinton and the democrats are content to let Trump have the spotlight for now.

Trump will have a press conference soon....you're not gonna like it!!

Nah, perfect narcissists. They don't care what we say... they control the mass media. Thats why in every 'xyz' revolution we hear about the attempts to capture the state controlled radio or TV stations.

Are you sure? Because you were pretty sure how that other issue was going to go...
I'm betting when the debates begin you will see a meltdown. But it won't be Hillary.
Oh and trump might consider actually answering the questions asked at these press conferences y'all want to brag about. How refreshing would that be???

The issue is one of control, how they control her appearances, presenting her in the best light. Most people don't scrutinize as close as we. The debates are a good example, they air them during ball games, the media will control the venue, the questions they present, how they try and make trump look bad and hillary glowing. Watch and see, the good ship lolly pop is full steam ahead.

You can't rig an election. There are way too many people, machines, locations to do it. Every time he says that people laugh at him.
