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.

Jon Stewart Tries to Get Hillary Clinton to Declare Candidacy for President

Jon Stewart began his interview with Hillary Clinton last night asking a few questions around the edges, hoping to get her to announce she’s running for president:

“Do you like commuting to work or do you like a home office?… Do you have a shape for that office?… do you like corners?… Do you prefer to sit in traffic or cause it?”

Clinton says she’s gotten used to the constant criticism, having been in he public eye for nearly a quarter century.

To that, Stewart said, looking inward, “It’s just these talking heads, sitting around, picking out every little thing, making fun of it. It’s just not right.”

Hillary Clinton to Appear on ‘The Daily Show’

clintonThe cable news portion of Hillary Clinton‘s book tour ended a few weeks ago, but the former Secretary of State isn’t finished yet. She’ll appear on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” tomorrow.

A few weeks ago, Stewart poked fun at CNN and Fox News for dubbing their Clinton interviews as exclusives on the same day. In tomorrow’s interview, it’s likely Stewart will ask the presumptive presidential candidate for her thoughts on one of his favorite comedy targets—cable news.

Clinton has previously given her take on one of broadcast news’ big platforms. “Going on the Sunday shows is not my favorite thing to do,” she said while testifying on Capitol Hill last year. “There are other things I prefer to do on Sunday mornings.”

  • Charlie Gasparino‘s coverage from the annual Allen & Co. media summit was short-lived. The New York Post reports the hard-charging reporter was booted from what he calls the “insipid Sun Valley conference” after two run-ins with security. On Twitter, he vowed to return next year.

Jon Stewart Has Something to Say About the ‘Exclusive’ Hillary Clinton Interviews

After Hillary Clinton wrapped up the television interviews for her book tour this week, Jon Stewart poked fun at CNN and Fox News, both of which called their interviews “exclusive” — despite the fact that Clinton talked to the two networks back-to-back on the same day.

“Wow, imagine that! Two news networks expressly promoting exclusives with Hillary Clinton … on the same day! It’s like words have no meaning anymore,” Stewart quipped. “But good get! They should be proud of themselves to score an exclusive interview with the Salinger-like recluse Hillary Clinton, a woman who’s secretive nationwide book tour had restricted her access to NBC, CBS, ABC twice, and the Arltington, Virginia Costco.” Watch:

Ratings: Hillary Clinton’s Back-to-Back CNN, Fox News Interviews

FNC CNN Clinton Interviews

Hillary Clinton capped off the television portion of her book tour yesterday with back-to-back interviews on CNN and Fox News. Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren‘s joint Fox News interview delivered the biggest cable news audience, averaging 2,022,000 total viewers and 313,000 A25-54 viewers from 6:45-7:15 p.m. CNN’s interview, which ran from 5 to 6 p.m., had 521,000 total viewers and 115,000 A25-54 viewers.

Compared to the same time period the previous day, Fox News was up +23% in total viewers and +30% in the A25-54 demographic. CNN was up +32% in total viewers and +55% in the demo compared to the 5 p.m. hour Monday.

Fox came in first in both total viewers and the A25-54 demographic on cable news in the 6:45 to 7:15 half-hour. CNN came in second (behind Fox News) in both ratings metrics in the 5pmET time slot.

The re-air of Christiane Amanpour‘s town hall interview — which aired from 9 to 10:30 p.m. because of additional commercial breaks — averaged 579,000 total viewers and 137,000 A25-54 viewers.

Hillary Clinton Wraps Network Interviews with Town Hall on CNN, Ping Pong on Fox News

FNCHillaryFollowing ABC, CBS and NBC interviews last week, Hillary Clinton finished a round of network news interviews related to her new book, “Hard Choices,” with a live town hall on CNN followed by a live joint interview today on Fox News.

The town hall moderated by Christiane Amanpour included questions from the audience, ranging from immigration, to gun control, and marijuana policy. The town hall wrapped at 6:02 and 40 minutes later, Clinton was on Fox News taking part in a joint interview with Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren, which amounted to a ping pong match as Baier got 7 minutes, followed by Van Susteren for 7 minutes, then Baier, and back to Van Susteren, wrapping at 7:20pm.

Today’s news of the arrest of a suspect in the 9/11/12 Benghazi attack led both interviews. CNN’s Amanpour spent about 5 minutes on the arrest and Clinton’s role as Secretary of State at the time. Amanpour went for the emotional, asking Clinton if she had known how dangerous the situation in Benghazi was shaping up to be, “might you not have held [Amb. Chris Stevens] back on 9/11, of all days?” “I think we would have certainly cautioned, and maybe even directed people to just shelter in place,” Clinton said.

On Fox News, Baier spent his first 7 minutes, and part of his second 7 minutes, questioning Clinton on Benghazi, from the news of today’s arrest, to that night in 2012, to how the administration characterized it early on, and whom to blame for it. “This was the fog of war,” Clinton said.

Other topics in the Fox interview included the crisis in Iraq, the release of POW Bowe Berghdal, (and the Guantanamo prisoners released in exchange), the IRS scandal, whether she’ll run in 2016, and the detention of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooresi in Mexico, a case Van Susteren has been following closely.

As Clinton finished her round of interviews the results of a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll were released. 38% of registered voters said they would “probably” or be “almost certain to” vote for Clinton should she run in 2016, while 37% said they would definitely oppose her.
