Daily Mail editor David Martosko, the designated campaign pool reporter for the Hillary Clinton campaign, was denied access by the campaign to a New Hampshire event this morning. Gee, wonder why?
The Clinton campaign denied access to the designated print pool reporter in New Hampshire this morning.
David Martosko of DailyMail.com was told by Hillary for New Hampshire staffer Meredith Thatcher that he was not approved for Monday’s pooled events.
When Martosko asked Thatcher to phone her boss, Harrell Kirstein, he was again told that he had not been approved by the campaign.

A Daily Mail spokesperson has emailed us a comment on what happened:
“We can confirm that David Martosko, U.S. Political Editor, DailyMail.com was today denied access to Hillary Clinton’s campaign event and was prohibited from boarding a van that the Clinton campaign is using to transport pool reporters around New Hampshire. We are seeking an explanation from the Clinton campaign as to why this occurred as Mr. Martosko was scheduled to be the designated print pool reporter in New Hampshire this morning.”
