from The Daily Bell:
Decades-old pink sweater helps explain why Hillary Clinton really hates press conferences … Why is she so reluctant to stand in front of the assembled media and take questions? The answer could have something to do with the very first news conference Clinton held as first lady in 1994, an event that became known as the “pink press conference” or the “pretty-in-pink press conference.” – National Post
The National Post has just explained why Hillary avoids press conference: The media discriminates against her because she is a woman. Also: The Media “never lets go of a scandal.”
Reportedly, she’s not held one in 2016 and last held one on Dec. 4 2015.
She doesn’t like them. She avoids them. This perception apparently took hold after the so-called “pretty-in-pink” press conference.
The Pretty-in-Pink news conference was intended to address charges over a Clinton scandal involving a bankrupt housing development called Whitewater.
The results of the press conference included speculation on why she wore the sweater but didn’t do much to decrease interest in Whitewater. That seems have created a grudge that has lasted some 20 years.
The speculation surrounding the sweater was obvious: She was trying to soften her image as “co-president” by reminding the media she was in fact Bill Clinton’s wife.
For Hillary defenders, the lack of press conferences is part of a larger strategy of self-preservation.
The press is seen as invasive, and its questioning unfair and relentless.
