Nashua Telegraph: "Antithesis Of What The New Hampshire Primary Is About" "The Hillary Clinton campaign staged an event for the New Hampshire media last week that struck us as the antithesis of what the New Hampshire primary is about." (Editorial, "Event was the antithesis of what NH is about," Nashua Telegraph, 5/21/15)

  • Nashua Telegraph: "Part Of The Culture In Washington, Not New Hampshire" "Anonymity, as a matter of course and for its own sake, is part of the culture in Washington, not New Hampshire." (Editorial, "Event was the antithesis of what NH is about," Nashua Telegraph, 5/21/15)
  • Nashua Telegraph: "New Hampshire Voters Deserve Better Than The Washington Cloak-And-Dagger Treatment" "We think New Hampshire voters deserve better than the Washington cloak-and-dagger treatment, regardless of party and regardless of whether you're the longest of longshots, or the presumptive favorite." (Editorial, "Event was the antithesis of what NH is about," Nashua Telegraph, 5/21/15)
  • Nashua Telegraph: "Shadowy Campaign" "If this is the kind of shadowy campaign she's running in New Hampshire, we have to wonder how this mentality would translate if she moves back into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave." (Editorial, "Event was the antithesis of what NH is about," Nashua Telegraph, 5/21/15)

Washington Post: "Paltry Information...Dished Under The Cover Of Anonymity" "Too rarely do the shenanigans of the 'background call' get called out. But that's precisely what the Telegraph of Nashua, N.H., did today in a searing editorial ripping the paltry information that Hillary Clinton's campaign dished under the cover of anonymity."(Eric Wemple, "New Hampshire paper blasts Hillary Clinton campaign for lame conference call," Washington Post, 5/21/15)

 

Politico: "Concerns About The Campaign's Commitment To Running An Open And Transparent Campaign" "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." (Dylan Byers, "Clinton campaign denies access to pool reporter," Politico, 6/15/15)

  • Politico: "If The Pool Would Be Admitted... The answer: 'No. You can't come in.'" "At the front door again, your pooler was asked to wait while the first agent on duty checked to see if the pool would be admitted. ... The answer: 'No. You can't come in.'" (Dylan Byers, "Clinton campaign denies access to pool reporter," Politico, 6/15/15)

CNN: "Hillary Clinton's Campaign Used A Rope To Keep Journalists Away" "Hillary Clinton's campaign used a rope to keep journalists away from the candidate on Saturday while she walked in this small town's July Fourth parade." (Dan Merica, "Clinton campaign corrals media," CNN, 7/6/15)

 

Fox News: "Cloaked In Secrecy" "However, the optics of reporters being corralled along at the event, in Gotham, N.H., did not look good and added to the criticism that Clinton, unlike other 2016 presidential candidates, is shielded from reporters and their questions and as a public figure is cloaked in secrecy." (Joseph Weber, "Clinton campaign ropes off reporters at New Hampshire parade," Fox News, 7/5/15)

 

CBS: "Nothing Says Freedom On Independence Day Like Corralling Reporters With A Rope To Keep Them Away" "Nothing says freedom on Independence Day like corralling reporters with a rope to keep them away from Hillary Clinton as she marches in a July 4th parade." (Jacqueline Alemany, "Clinton campaign corrals reporters at July Fourth parade," CBS, 7/4/15)

  • CBS: "Reminder Of Clinton's Fraught Relationship With The Press" "The decision to lasso the media was a reminder of Clinton's fraught relationship with the press. Pictures of the reporter-roping took on a life of their own on social media and overshadowed what was supposed to be a news-less holiday photo-op in the early primary state." (Jacqueline Alemany, "Clinton campaign corrals reporters at July Fourth parade," CBS, 7/4/15)
