Clinton Campaign Held Off-the-Record Party for Reporters, Anchors, Editors
The Hillary Clinton Campaign threw an off the record party and only liberal media were invited, recently leaked emails revealed.
A source identifying himself as Guccifer 2.0 provided The Intercept with emails revealing “friendly and highly useful relationships” between the Clinton campaign and the U.S. media.
Those emails showed that the Clinton campaign held a private, “off-the-record” dinner with “influential reporters, anchors and editors” on April 10, just two days before Clinton officially announced her presidential bid. The cocktail party took place at Clinton’s chief strategist Joel Benenson’s home.
According to the memo sent out by deputy press secretary Jesse Ferguson, the goals of the dinner included giving “reporters their first thoughts from team HRC in advance of the announcement,” “setting expectations for the announcement and launch period,” and “framing the HRC message and framing the race.”
