Hillary Clinton hates interacting with media, presumably because she genuinely believes there is a vast conspiracy aimed specifically at her and her husband that is dedicated to besmirching the nobel Clinton legacy. Her campaign has barred pool reporters from attending campaign events and has scoffed at reporter demands for questions with Orwellian declaration like “her speech will be her interview.”
