An Inside Look at How Hillary Clinton Plays the Media | Mother Jones
That being noted, the concept of manipulating the media is as old as the ages.
Unfortunately, media presentation skills con us to believe whatever they report...
At MotherJones.com, Daniel Schulman discusses the issue:
"He noted that President Barack Obama would be delivering a major speech in the Middle East the following day that would "blanket coverage and extinguish the Cuba stuff, so we just need to weather the night."
'we are suffering from two significant tactical problems: 1) you are here and removed 2) our press corps was out of position today and in flight, so the people we worked on all week and the ones likely to skew our way were replaced by reporters not connected to us. The two issues above will be rectified tomorrow in your two interviews - especially Greta who is malleable. We can use that to make a strong case on the principle, and the simple fact Cuba wasn't in the OAS yesterday, and won't be tomorrow. Everyday that passes reinforces that point. The time difference to East Coast will help us in moving whatever is said in these interviews tomorrow.'
In his email, Reines was referring to an interview with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren, which aired the following day."
