Hillary Clinton Speaks At The University Of Miami

I recently began following David Martosko on Twitter (highly recommend) so I can’t say I was surprised the petty and vindictive Clinton campaign used some BS excuse to ban him.

Via Politico:

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.

“Your pooler showed up at the Puritan Backroom in Manchester on a rainy New Hampshire morning at 7:45 and was greeted in the parking lot by Meredith Thatcher, a press staffer with the New Hampshire Democratic Party. Thatcher told your pooler that he wasn’t the approved print pool reporter for today’s pooled events,” Martosko reported in his first pool report.

“Asked to call her boss, Harrell Kirstein, she did so and then reported: ‘So I’m afraid it’s a no. You’re not on the list.’ She said [campaign press secretary] Nick Merrill should be phoned with questions,” Martosko continued. “Asked if the print pooler was being prohibited from getting on either of the pool vans, Thatcher replied: ‘I’m afraid that’s right.’ Asked why, she responded: ‘All I know is what Harrell has told me. I got an email saying the print pooler would be changed for today. Sorry.'”

Update:

Unbelievable.
