    Concluding a New England vacation, I fell off the non-work wagon just outside Boston Sunday with a tweet from Kellyanne Conway, this week's Donald Trump campaign chief: "Day 267: No press conference. And no press outrage."

    Journalists grill Hillary Clinton at NABJ/NAHJ conference

    Hillary Clinton held a mini-press conference of sorts with reporters Friday — and lived to tell the tale.

    She spoke to the joint convention of the National Association of Black Journalists/National Association of Hispanic Journalists in Washington, D.C. and briefly dealt with what's been her frustrating (for reporters) reluctance to hold a press conference.

    I'm with [redacted]

    The Cohort is Poynter's bi-monthly newsletter about women kicking ass in digital media.

    Being a journalist is a tough gig during election season. Between conventions, debates, evening announcements and vote-counting, there are a lot of late nights. Wading through reader comments on stories and social posts is like navigating a minefield. And then there’s the principle that we should be neutral and impartial — an important concept, but one that seems especially tough to follow this year.

    Bill or Hillary? Newspapers face front-page conundrum on nomination night

    Even on an historic night for both, Hillary and Bill Clinton could not avoid a media controversy not of their own making.

    For the first time, a woman was nominated to be a major party presidential nominee. For the first time, too, a former president was speaking on behalf of his spouse at a convention.

    The press and Clinton critics talk past each other on new Benghazi report

    There are gobs of damning new information in the report of the Republican majority that investigated the 2012 attacks on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, the panel on Fox News' daily "Outnumbered" assured viewers Tuesday morning.

    Hillary Clinton's actions were "borderline criminal," intoned Fox panelist Pete Snyder. Others seated nearby called the then-Secretary of State's actions "outrageous" and "disturbing," as the chyron read, "BENGHAZI REPORT FAULTS CLINTON, OBAMA FOR PUSHING FALSE NARRATIVE ABOUT VIDEO."

    Cable news juggles Brexit drama and Clinton-Warren lovefest

    Cable news started its week with an abundance of live riches and a quandary: Cover Britain's exit or Elizabeth Warren's arrival?

    In the end, CNN, Fox and MSNBC initially offered a bit of a video buffet, at least until their final preference for a Warren-Hillary Clinton coming out in Cincinnati was clear — and leaving C-SPAN2 to satisfy those viewers with a more international news craving.

    No, Hillary Clinton isn't going to 'clinch the nomination' tomorrow. Here's why.

    News organizations will face an important decision when the polls close Tuesday night in New Jersey.

    If all goes as expected and Hillary Clinton wins even close to a majority of the 126 delegates up for grabs, journalists will make a choice, more or less, between two possible headlines:

    • Clinton Clinches Nomination
    • Clinton Wins New Jersey

    There’s no question that headline No. 1 makes the bigger splash. There’s also no question, at least in my mind, that journalists should go with something closer to headline No. 2.
