Hillary Clinton has finally agreed to hold her first press conference since December 4, 2015, but she will only be meeting with a specific group of supporters.
According to Infowars, Clinton will only be meeting with black and latino reporters as she is refusing to meet with whites. The Democratic presidential nominee will hold a press conference at the Washington, DC, Marriott on Friday, but it will only be open to members of the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, according to a press release.
“It is notable that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has recognized the 2016 NABJ-NAHJ Convention as a vital gathering to discuss her platform and the issues impacting black and Latino communities,” said NABJ President Sarah Glover.
While it’s unclear whether or not Clinton will take questions, judging from her past, they will likely be handed to her ahead of time. This press conference will only further the perception that Clinton is pandering to minority voters and keeping the press on a tight leash to control her fake image.
“She gets her message out in ways that are completely controlled, but American citizens deserve better,” Washington Post columnist Margaret Sullivan once wrote.
We all remember the time the Clinton campaign physically lassoed reporters with ropes to stop them from approaching Hillary Clinton during a parade in July 2015.

“Campaign events are carefully stage managed, with reporters getting few opportunities to question the candidate,” the Huffington Post admitted. “Journalists privately met… to discuss grievances over access on the campaign trail — from not receiving timely logistical information to being kept too far from the candidate at public events or kept completely out of fundraisers.”
