On Monday Hillary Clinton posted a picture on her Facebook Page alongside a caption, "Hillary’s hosting her first Facebook Q&A of the campaign this afternoon. She'll be chatting live about her vision for a better economy—add your question below, and the post will be updated when she’s ready to chat!"
Clinton has spent a lot of time ignoring the press, roping them (literally), and not answering their questions.Several reporters from top outlets saw this as the perfect opportunity to ask questions -- without having to worry about being lassoed.
Clinton replied to a few reporters, including CNN's Dan Merica. He asked about her flip-flopping on increasing the capital gains tax. She attributed the change to "the increase in short-termism."
Meanwhile, many reporters' questions were completely ignored, including that of MSNBC's Alex Seitz-Wald.
IJ Review's Justin Green asked plenty of questions, none of which were answered.
The same is true of BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski.
The Weekly Standard's own Jim Swift asked the obvious question, included in the above screenshot, which, of course, went unanswered.
Are the top three questions coming from reporters because your campaign is bad at making you available to answer our questions?
