Hillary Clinton Makes The Rounds In Advance Of Her Departure

In her last full week as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton made the TV rounds to talk about U.S. foreign policy and her own legacy.

The interviews were serious, wide-ranging, and not too confrontational. Clinton even threw in a bit of praise for CNN during that network’s interview. After the interviewer Jill Dougherty noted that she and her colleague Elise Labott have been covering her for years, Clinton responded:

Thank you. And thanks to both of you. I’ve enjoyed having you be part of the flying circus… to traverse the globe, and appreciate the attention that CNN pays to international news stories. It makes a big difference.

Her Fox News interview with Greta Van Susteren was serious, with a heavy focus on Egypt, Libya and Afghanistan:

Hillary Clinton Grants Fox News Exit Interview, As Bill O’Reilly Talks To Colin Powell

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is granting an exit interview to Fox News Channel’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

Clinton and President Obama gave a joint interview to “60 Minutes” last night, but this will be the Secretary’s first solo interview since the Inauguration, as well as the Congressional hearings examining what happened in Benghazi, Libya. Update: Clinton will also be giving interviews with NBC, the BBC, CNN and ABC before leaving office on Friday. Andrea Mitchell will interview her for NBC, and Cynthia McFadden for ABC. Kim Ghattas will interview her for the BBC. For CNN, Jill Dougherty and Elise Labott will conduct the interview.

Clinton and FNC have not always had the friendliest relationship, including last year when a number of FNC hosts questioned her illness. Van Susteren stood up for Clinton, and criticized her own colleagues.

It will also be her first interview with Fox News since February, 2011 (save for an appearance in on “On the Record” special about Haiti earlier this month). Update: Wendell Goler in fact interviewed Clinton in October, 2012, and Ed Henry spoke to her in November, 2011.

In addition, FNC says that Bill O’Reilly will be interviewing former Secretary of State Colin Powell today, with the interview to air tomorrow. It will actually be O’Reilly’s first interview with Powell.

CBS Scoops State Department Emails

CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson seems to have the scoop of the week so far, obtaining State Department emails that indicate that the White House was made aware on the consulate attack in Benghazi just hours after it happened, and that terrorist groups were claiming responsibility for it.

Attkisson first reported the news yesterday evening on the “CBS Evening News.” Later that night, Fox News host Sean Hannity said that FNC had “exclusively obtained” State Department emails as well, though it is apparent that the emails were the same as the ones Attkisson reported on two and a half hours earlier. This morning, CNN reporter Elise Labott also posted about the emails, citing her own source.

Attkisson’s report is below, with the FNC and CNN reports after the jump.
