Trump Cancels Local Media Interview After Reporter Refused to Give Him Questions in Advance
Action News Jax reporter Jenna Bourne was one of two reporters who was scheduled to talk with Trump after his rally yesterday in Jacksonville. As it were, Bourne tweeted last night that Trump never met with her after all, which she attributed to a rather specific reason:

While talking about the incident with Florida Politics, Bourne said the Trump campaign asked Action News Jax this weekend about who would be interviewing the mogul, and what kind of questions would be addressed. Bourne and the station agreed to send them a list of “general topics,” but even as she waited for Trump after Monday’s rally, he never appeared before her, even though he did talk with another local network.
Trump has recently been blasting the press more often, saying they are part of the conspiracy to rig the election against him, and they “may even be more crooked than Hillary [Clinton].”
One of Trump’s media grievances is over reports that Donna Brazile gave the Clinton campaign advanced notice of a primary debate question while the interim DNC chairwoman was still with CNN.
