  • Hillary Clinton: Reporters today spend too little time reporting

    If Hillary Rodham Clinton runs for president in 2016, she may indeed run a very different campaign than she did in 2008. One area where there is unlikely to be change? Clinton still has no love for the media. Delivering a keynote address at a Salesforce...
