Hillary Spox on NYT: ‘We Just Want to Make Sure They’re Going the Extra Distance To Be Accurate’

‘We’ve been through this and we expect a lot of scrutiny but we just want to make sure that people are going the extra distance to be as accurate as possible’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

MITCHELL: “How would it transform the race?”
PALMIERI: “I'm not going to -- I'll let other people weigh in on that. We're just going to let him make his decision.”
MITCHELL: “And one of the things that we pointed out is that these unfavorable poll numbers came immediately after an directly, which LED to a lot of other inaccurate reporting before it was corrected. The inaccurate reporting at the referral from the inspectors general. Do you feel that there is a problem, that she's being treated unfairly?”
PALMIERI: “I think that when you are the front-runner of the democratic side and she's the overall front-runner, so we understand that with that comes a lot of scrutiny and I think people are -- you see it on the coverage of the polls. It's all about the focus is where people see that she's not doing as well as opposed to the fact that she's still winning. So we expect that. We are concerned about obviously with the "Times" story was poor sourcing, bad fact, and then a very long time to correct what was on their website and we thought that that was damaging in terms of, as you said, a lot of of other outlets picking it up. Also what we are trying to convey overall is just because with digital information, just because you can correct the story later doesn't mean you should rush to get it up -- take the risk of being wrong. So, look, she's a big girl, I'm a big girl. We've been through this and we expect a lot of scrutiny but we just want to make sure that people are going the extra distance to be as accurate as possible.”
