Like a lot of people, I cringed when news of Hillary Clinton’s book, “What Happened” started to break. As a communications guy, all I could think was that this was a spectacular miscalculation on her part; that the timing was off, the message was off, etc. And then I heard an interview with her on The New Yorker Radio Hour. You should listen to it.
This interview is not Hillary whining or blaming. It’s Hillary explaining what was happening throughout the campaign using internet search data, analysis of press coverage and more.
Its also an important interview because she articulates in blunt, direct terms the ongoing threat to democracy – from the Russians, because of what Trump and his administration are doing and more.
Whatever your politics, this is a really interesting interview. It reminds us how far from “normal” we’ve come
