Default Reporter says Clinton camp denying him access to events

Good to see the rest of the media supporting this reporter from the Daily Mail.

Since this story broke the Clinton camp has changed its story several times on why they refused access for this reporter. I guess, "Because he's too mean to Mrs. Pantsuit" isn't an acceptable reason so they need to come up with something better.

Reporter says Clinton camp denying him access to events | Fox News

The simmering dispute over media access to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign erupted again Monday when a reporter for DailyMail.com was told by the campaign he couldn’t attend her events in New Hampshire.

David Martosko, a reporter for DailyMail.com, a website affiliated with the Daily Mail in London, said the Clinton camp said his newspaper wasn’t part of the official group -- known as the print pool -- that covers the White House on a rotating basis. As a result, he was blocked Monday from covering her events in person for the pool.

The campaign said it is trying to resolve the issue. However, it denied any suggestion that Martosko was denied access because of his newspaper’s critical coverage of Clinton.

“The Daily Mail can sensationalize [the incident] as they see fit for their readers, but that's what happened," a Clinton aide told Fox News.

Major media organizations in Clinton’s traveling press pool issued a statement Monday night defending Martosko and rejecting any attempt by the Clinton campaign to “dictate” who covers the candidate.

“We haven't yet had a clear explanation about why the pool reporter for today's events was denied access,” said the statement signed by the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, New York Times and Tribune Publishing, among others.

“But any attempt by the campaign to dictate who is in the pool is unacceptable.”

Most presidential campaigns essentially follow the procedures outlined by the White House Correspondents Association. To accommodate the frequent media crush, a newspaper reporter, a photographer and a TV crew, known as the pool, covers an event. Then the details are widely shared via email to reporters and others.

However, in covering Clinton, a group of 14 news organizations, including The New York Times and The Washington Post, have formed to cover events and share the information on a limited basis.

Group members argue that those who don’t share the expenses of covering a campaign shouldn’t have immediate access to the information, or “pool reports.”

While the Clinton camp has implied the Daily Mail is not among the 14, The Huffington Post reports that the paper is part of the special Clinton pool.

Still, this is not the first time a member of the foreign press has complained about being excluded from covering Clinton up close.

“My feeling is that some people have established the rules and that we haven’t been part of the discussion,” a reporter for the French TV network Canal Plus recently told The Post. “I went to Iowa to cover [Clinton’s] first event. I only saw her van. … I am fighting for equality and access for all.”

The Clinton camp on Monday also said: "We have been working to create an equitable system, and have had some concerns expressed by foreign outlets about not being a part of the rotation.”

A DailyMail.com spokesperson on Monday afternoon confirmed that Martosko was denied access to the Clinton event and kept from boarding a van that her campaign is using to transport pool reporters around New Hampshire. However, the campaign has yet to provide a full explanation, considering Martosko was scheduled to be the designated print pool reporter, the spokesperson also said.

Martosko tweeted: “For those of you asking: What I've seen online re: today is accurate, and I intend to report here whether they want me to or not."

Fox News' Ed Henry contributed to this report.

Why does this not surprise me? Hillary is scared to death that the facts will come out on a number of issues before she has a chance to spin them.

With all the baggage she carries and her numerous faux pas already any one with half a brain can see she is toast, she'll never win the nomination.

This guy O'Malley is starting to make a little noise and I see him winning the dem nomination. Bill Clinton even suggested 10 year ago this guy would be president some day.

How she wins is with a combination of the same identity and class warfare politics along with being "historic" by accident of birth that propelled Obama to the White House. The reality that she is old, without substantial accomplishments, rich from influence peddling and notoriously corrupt doesn’t matter. She has everything to lose by engaging with reporters so she is not going to bother in hopes brainless establishment Republicans will choose someone like Jeb Bush she can demogogue.

Yes, it is. The Democrats I know who don't support Hillary are throwing their support behind socialist Bernie Sanders. The seeming stupidity of some otherwise intelligent people never fails to astonish me. I just don't get it.

Unfortunately there are plenty of people looking for the easy way out, have the Federal government fix it and tax someone else to pay for it.
