Forget the dog house. The Hillary campaign had a better idea for where to put reporters assigned to cover her in Austin yesterday: In the men’s room, right next to the functional urinals.
It was immediately interpreted as something of a metaphor for the Clinton campaign’s attitude to the press: With Sen. Hillary Clinton at Austin’s convention center for “a Texas-sized townhall,” her media entourage was taken to its work space—in a men’s room of a separate community center.
The tables set up for reporters nearly abutted the urinals. That made for a more spirited rush than usual for the best working space, with female reporters quickly staking out chairs on the small room’s opposite side.
Nothing like putting a group of national reporters for some of the largest publications in the nation in a men’s bathroom to let them know what you really think of them.
