Media Miss Substance Of Clinton's 3.5 Hours Of Interviews


The media's fixation on comments Hillary Clinton made during recent interviews responding to questions about her family's wealth has obscured the substantive issues Clinton talked about during nearly four hours of interviews. 

Clinton's interviews on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News, PBS, and NPR lasted for more than three hours and 45 minutes, not including commercials, according to a Media Matters analysis. 

In the weeks since Clinton began promoting her book, the media has endlessly fixated on whether Clinton committed a “gaffe” when responding to questions about wealth.
