Donald Trump’s relationship with the media has changed dramatically from the primaries to today. Initially, the media did not take his candidacy seriously, American University Professor Jane Hall says. Trump enjoyed “a free pass.” But once he became the nominee, that scrutiny grew tougher.
Hall says Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, became more comfortable with the media as time passed. The change was especially apparent once the presidential debates began. Hall says Clinton became more relaxed with reporters and more willing to “go to the back of the plane” to talk to them.
