#HidingHillary Day 261: Journalism Professor Blames Media For Hillary’s Absence

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (R) and Pakistani Foreign Minister Mahmood Qureshi laugh during a press conference at the State Department in Washington, DC, on October 22, 2010.

It’s now been 261 days since Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton held a press conference. Clinton has nothing on her public schedule until August 25, an “organizing event” in Reno, Nevada.

Why the Clinton campaign is #HidingHillary is the subject of much speculation, but an associate professor at City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism, Jeff Jarvis, isn’t blaming Clinton’s health or her inability to honestly answer unscripted questions about her many scandals. No, Jarvis blames the media for #HidingHillary because the press would be “falling over themselves to show how tough they can be.”

With professors like Jarvis shaping impressionable minds, it’s no wonder so much of the media exhibits liberal bias. In a subsequent tweet, Jarvis clarified that he “wishes we had Clinton pressers” but that the media should prioritize its questions because “the email story is not a balance for fascism.” @JeffJarvis directs a j-school “new media program” so I’m sure he’d love to hear from you on Twitter.

In honor of @JeffJarvis tomorrow’s #HidingHillary theme is “what softball questions would you expect Jeff Jarvis “journalists” to ask #HidingHillary.
