6. I love Hillary

And I agree the media brought her down. Including the NYT. Charles Pierce is right on about how the NYT has a Clinton problem. Maggie Haberman and her colleagues are probably the most important reasons she lost outside of purchased GOP-donor operatives like Chaffetz and Giuliani.


HOWEVER, we have to lay a little blame at Hillary's feet for her media relations. Today, you need to engage the media. You need a social media fast response team. You need to reach out with cell phone videos and direct talk. Hillary didn't do those things. (And this is not news - media around her campaign and top campaign officials all know this. I was told that campaign knew this, but ultimately the candidate makes these decisions not to engage the media.)


Links:
- Charles Pierce on NYT, Safire
- NYT op Ed by Obama 08 media director criticizing HRC.
I can dig actual links up on request.
