Hillary Clinton Acknowledges She’ll Have to ‘Work on’ Media Expectations

abc_hillary_clinton_nightline_interview_lpl_130129_mnShe’s already provided ample cable news fodder for months, and today, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton acknowledged she might need to reexamine her media outlook.

In an interview with NPR’s “On Point,” Clinton responded to former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson‘s criticism in a POLITICO interview. Abramson said Clinton is “incredibly unrealistic about journalists,” expecting too much loyalty.

“I think maybe one of the points Jill was making is that I do sometimes expect perhaps more than I should,” Clinton said about her relationship with the media. “And I’ll have to work on my expectations, but I had an excellent relationship with the State Department press that followed me for four years and enjoyed working with them, and whatever I do in the future, I look forward to having the same kind of opportunities.”

Clinton recently had ample opportunity to work on her interview skills ahead of a potential 2016 presidential run. Her “Hard Choices” book tour included interviews with ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, Fox News, CNN, and Comedy Central.
