It’s now been 30 days since Hillary Rodham Clinton launched her official presidential bid for the White House, yet she still hasn’t done a formal sit down interview with a national reporter. That’s far and away the longest any candidate has waited in the modern era, a fact first reported by Breitbart News.

As CNN notes, “Since her presidential campaign announcement on April 12, Clinton has not held a formal press conference. While on the campaign trail, she has responded – reluctantly at times – to roughly eight questions from journalists.”

The former Secretary of State’s media blackout has allowed her to avoid answering questions about the blockbuster book Clinton Cash by Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer.
