Hillary Clinton Disses the Sunday Newsmaker Shows Deadline
In the midst of her congressional testimony Wednesday on the handling of the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton let it be known that she's not a big fan of Sunday morning newsmaker programs such as CBS's "Face the Nation," ABC's "This Week" and NBC's "Meet the Press," reports Deadline.com.
Clinton, who will soon step down from her Cabinet role, was asked why she didn't appear on the Sunday shows after the Libyan incident, instead allowing U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to go on the shows and deal with media questions.
Clinton responded, “I have to confess, here in public, going on the Sunday shows is not my favorite thing to do. There are other things I’d prefer to do on Sunday mornings. And, you know, I haven’t been on a Sunday show in way over a year. It just isn’t something that I normally jump to do. And I did feel strongly that we had a lot that we had to manage, that I had to respond to, and that that should be my priority.”
