Journalists Call Out Clinton for Hypocrisy After She Criticizes Trump’s Relationship with Press

Hillary ClintonAfter Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attacked her Republican rival Donald Trump for his heavy-handed treatment of the press, reporters took to social media to point out that she also was taking unprecedented steps to block their access on the campaign trail.

The snarkfest began after Clinton tweeted the following, a line from her speech in Springfield, Illinois on Wednesday.

But reporters retorted by pointing out that Clinton’s own record of dealing with the press isn’t exactly stellar, with many noting either her literal lassoing of reporters at campaign stops or her unprecedented seven-month stretch without holding a press conference.
