CNN’s “Hambycast” is back, and this time for Peter Hamby’s trip to Iowa for the Harkin Steak Fry and the media circus that was Hillary Clinton’s visit to it.
Hamby documents the 200+ credentialed media’s obsession with Clinton’s appearance and more so, her potential 2016 run for president.
“One reporter got whacked in the head with the butt of a big television camera. Another photographer dramatically toppled off his ladder while straining to get a shot. It was a little absurd,” writes Hamby in an accompanying post. “When the Clintons approached the media zoo for question time, Bill Clinton leaned in and relished the scene. Hillary kept her distance.”
